no good deed goes unpunnished. As I mentioned I did that house and basically gave it away. But I did get experience and it paid for enough c7/c9 wire to do my house. So then the builder of that house asked if I would do his house. I knew where this was going. I went out yesterday and looked at it. I guessed 600ft counting the ridge lines. So I call the guy this morning. Now like I said this guy is a home builder for one, and he knows what I charged for the other house because him and that guy are friends. And to really mix things up. I do maintenance on this homebuilders spec homes until they get sold. So I knew if I went in at 4-5 or 6 a foot he'd think I'm out of my mind. So I told him 3.00. I knew he wouldn't go for it. I'm just trying to get out of this and save as much face as possible. He's said "1800.00!!!" for xmas lights. I said "I know I know". Look the spread is 2 - 4 per ft around here. He then asked if I charged Robert 900.00 I said "No I took that job matching another bid and I'll never do that again." So he told me he wants someone to do it for around 400.00 and I said I don't blame you keep looking and you'll find them but it ain't me and I'm just shooting you straight. I think I came out of it alright and hopefully he will still do other business with me. Here is his house. 400.00 ahhaha stop!
