I need to prepare a stone area for a customer at the bottom of the stairs off of the back deck. The area is approximately 60 sqft. I'm planning on using flat stone that is about 2.5 - 3 inches thick. I will use a hammer and chisel, or the back of a brick hammer to work with the stone. His back yard is fenced in so I also have to wheelbarrow the stone in (about 150 ft from truck to the area). I was told it would take about a half ton of stone ($100). Basically I was wondering how to price a job like this, or if there was a better way to price other than using my hourly charge, materials, mark-up etc.?
