So basically it is another thread about " how much should I charge ?" but you threw some religion in. I really think you should pray for an answer,after all Jesus was a carpenter, he will know what to bid.

I don't he was asking how much exactly...

I need to know how to tell him a price
.


You could tell him a price verbally. Just be sure to let them know it could go up or down a little. I like to put my prices in writing for the customer once I have the final cost figured out.

But I let them know the written bid is good for 30 days only.

FRist:) nobody will sand old hardwood floors if they are in good condition. Sweep it clean and wax with hot natural bee's wax and polish. Just it. Be positive. You can do that.

Do it for nothing, pass an offering plate when you are complete and trust god to provide a fair contribution.
