Removing ceramic tile and the under laid  and hauling is away is nothing but manual labor . and you need to get paid for doing it .I start at $35.00 an hour keep track of your time, and the next one you will  know. Repairing the drywall are you just touching up for painting or repairing holes and such ? A lite box patch for me is $ 50.00 . Like the say your time is money ...... you don't see the banks giving it away.

Hopefully "some people" are friends?
If not, better have all necessary licensing and insurance.

Mainly cracks and a few dents, nothing major.

 

Friends of the family for many years.  My grandfather actually remodeled their house 30 years ago.  A lot of what I am taking out and changing is what he put in then.

 

I am going to tell them 30, and see where I come out.

I've been in the business for over 30 years & have only done a few jobs by the hour. I don't like the pressure of the HO thinking what I should do in an hour...some days it looks like I've done nothing but I have. You have several different things to do. Several small things can take a lot of time because of planning, different tools, & more materials to pick up & etc. You really don't know how long it's going to take. You don't have the overhead of a business. Their your friends. So considering all this I would agree with others no less than $30-40. per hour plus materials...keep your receipts.

I just had an electrician run a cable 35 ft, I took down the ceiling sheetrock, opened up the walls, all he had to do was pull the cable through, connect it at house and connect the box in the workshop.  Took him 2 hours, cost me $300 plus materials.  I have to do all the sheet rock repair, close everything up, etc.  I think $30/hour is a bargain.

Did 30 an hour.

Never timed myself doing projects. Took me 9 hours per 10 x 12 bedroom to remove carpet, nail boards, undercut the door jambs, cut the boards to fit in the door ways and around some odd angles.

Took me 12 hours per bathroom.

And 5 hours for misc lights and such.

So total bill so far is 1540 dollars.

Thanks. Home owner is very happy. I'd post pictures but I don't feel comfortable posting the inside of someone else's house.

I still have the big 800 Sq ft. I told her she could pay me 2 dollars a Sq ft. She had quotes at 3 to 5 dollars a Sq foot

3200 dollars total will do my kitchen! I'm excited. Nothing better than the feeling of accomplishment from remodeling.

It's always a good feeling when everyone walks away happy especially working for friends & family. Glad everything worked out well for you & good chance of a recall for more work.
