Asked to build 7 steps then a landing out of pavers which leads to another 3 steps.(10 steps)

The treads are granite (6ft wide) and the treads are New England stone field veneered. 7inches high.

It's a new house being built. I just need a labor ballpark price .

It's between a stonewall that has been built

I'll calculate it for ya, what do you want to charge per hour and how many hours will this take you?

Andy, I'm surprised by people asking in the first place.

I guess what I'm saying is anyone with the skill to do the job, should know that every job is different and it is impossible to just throw out a number based on their simple questions.

To me, 100% of those questions are synonymous with, "how much should I charge to build a house?" "Or what should I charge to install a kitchen"

It's weird. I try and not become snobbish, but damn.

I don't remember if I ever asked such questions when I first joined this site. I sure hope not. I think I always knew my numbers. Not saying I always made money; but I always knew what I was charging. But, it was also this site that fully taught me how ridiculous such questions are.

I don't know why these guys just don't call the other guys who they are bidding against and ask them. Wouldn't they have the best idea about what it would cost?
