    When you guys are figuring job costs you must include your own time as an expense, how much do you charge yourself for your own time? Im trying to estimate my operating costs but not sure what to charge for myself.

    Yeah Lonestar i've read those but none gave an actual $$ amount of what is common to charge for oneself in this business being the owner/operator.

    Actual numbers will vary depending upon the amount that is coming in. Maybe a percentage of sales that goes to yourslef may hit a common ground
