    I didn't have to purchase anything at the Unique seminar I attended.

    Paul, thanks for the insight. I'll surely have more questions as I move into lighting this year.

    Good point on the labor. Never really even thought about that.

    I'll check for you. I'm only about an hour and a half from them.

    Ohio, I don't know if you can do it by email. Give them a call and ask them.

    OK, I just checked to see if there are any Hadco seminars in San Marcos, Texas and there are none currently scheduled.

    Thanks for checking. I would like to try and attend the Kichler one coming up and then maybe the Unique one closer to home here so I can compare and get some good ideas from both. Hopefully with the two It will be enuf to get me started in April. Any other thoughts or suggestions? As always Thanks!

    $215 per fixture for Kichler aluminum?
    I'd better be getting $315 for what I'm using then.
    Prices going up in 2008

    The longer i am in this field the less i see the reasoning in pricing per fixture. Its ok to check your averages but if an install is very simple... uses less wire ect it should be priced accordingly... if an install is insane with alot of bores and alot of tree lights it should also be priced accordingly.

    Its not hard to arrive at your price... labor... materials... desired profit and your there. I run my numbers 3 different ways before we will issue a proposal. I want to make sure that its not doing myself or the client an injustice. I have even been known to hand the client an invoice for less than the original amount at the end. Be honest and good to your clients. It will reward you in the end.

    This is just a rough average Billy. I don't actually charge by the fixture.
