    So we had a weird request yesterday,abuilder wanted us to put in a raised paver front porch.
    But here's the kicker, he had already ordered all the material, done the bid, signed the contract, has the equipment etc.... want toknow what we will charge to build it (labor only)

    Ok...so if you know how to bid it , dont you need to know HOW to build it first?

    Oh I gave him a price already. I have production rates on these types of jobs already. But our hourly rate already figures in things like using our own fuel for machines, and and umm using our machines, I guess it just seems really strange to be asked to charge someone $40 per hour to drive your car to their jobsite, use their tools and supplies to build a patio. (we Normally run about $55/hr for hardscapes)
