Are you sub contracting this out? I'm beating Harry...

$64,549.03

25K up front. the rest to be determined.

Anyway write down all your material including screws, etc. Put a price and a labor unit to each item. A switch plate might take .01 hr. to install type of thing.

Add a bunch of stuff to account for office, truck, utilities expense, etc.

You are good to go.

Nevermind, just noticed you're an apprentice. Is all the material supplied? If not you won't make a dime on this one. If so you will make apprentice wages doing it. What about permit? Why are you bidding a job like this as an apprentice?
