    anyone have an idea what a fair price is for installing these holiday lights. (per ft or by the job). Also are you furnishing the lights, heaven forbid if I had to dig through past Christmas lights all rolled up in a disfigured mass of exposed wire and missing bulbs. bah-humbug that would be very time consuming. Any help would be appreciated. thanks

    I have heard of guys doing it on here....I just don't know how lucrative of a business it is in the midwest.

    Drosgr, I used to work weekends for a guy in Wichita that netted about 400,000 a year and only worked 3 maybe 4 months doing only lights. He designed and made lawn pieces with rolled iron and rope lights, and the setups he used for houses were all built to fit the house. I think he charged all his customers a fee to store the lights for the year as well. I've been meaning to get in touch with him about prices and suppliers to start up in my area. I think it was called Lightworks.

    Most companies in OK get $55-$75 for a three man crew, lights are marked up however the company wants. You can get bit if you try to quote a job, some also do it a linear foot but I have not found a good formula. We are doing at least 1 sometimes 3 houses a day now.
