He's got a nice, solid green table right there. With a built-in heater to boot.

I bet you are pretty close, I probably would have pushed 10k a bit harder.

Hard to guess what you billed them, but the main thing is to make sure that those blank checks keep coming. You could have gotten an extra 5k if you wanted, but quality work, and a bill that is not out of hand will keep these types of customers calling. Don't misunderstand me here, you should make really good money on these jobs for the city, just don't $hit your nest. Good work by the way.

It's was a 5k job, 2 guys 7hrs. Had my check at end of day, it was an insurance job and you how those guys pay out , so I requested to have me a check upon completion of work. Insurance co wanted price , I said I'm not going to bid it. They offered 2500$ (lol) I said probably double and they moaned, but they had a rep there all day (weird) and he wrote me 5123.00 check last night. We been working this city marina for 40 yrs, and my father actually built the the first meter system long time ago And I was his helper that was kinda cool. so I kinda had some pull unbeknownst to the insurance company.
Yeah , I could have drilled them hard, but they got a fair price for the job, only 5 hrs of down time.
Even gave my 2 hands extra $200 each (HEB gift card) bonus for getting it done and making it look good.
My dad charged $1800 back then and no bonus for the son. Usual.

You did that w/out a permit? You are bolder than I, I've done work w/out a permit, but IMO that job has too many opportunities to be litigious to not get a permit.

Anyway, I assume you used a 5ma GFCI breaker to protect the circuits leaving the panel? All circuits 50-amp or less?
