LMAO That was the post that led to my McDonalds pricing question. Which reminds me of an email I recieved earlier this week......
Quote:
I am thinking about painting my home and need a rough estimate
I need either your rate per hour or your cost per ft

If it all possible I need it by Thursday...

The house is 1454 sq ft
the interior walls are 2911.6 sq ft.

Master Bead room 428.4 sq ft
Master bath 156.4 sq ft
2nd Bedroom 364.4 sq ft
3rd bedroom 364.4 sq ft
Main Bath 156.4 sq ft
Dinning room 412.4 sq ft
Living room 556.4 sq ft
Kitchen 204.4 sq ft
Hall 268.4 sq ft

ceilings are 8ft

Thank you,

I have a second house 960 sq ft (3 bedroom) however I do not have wall sq ft yet.

specify if the price per sq ft is labor only or includes paint

Thank you
I called him and might have considered giving some advice if the guy hadnt tried to pull the wool over my eyes with "Im thinking about painting my home" Generally, I have no problem helping out a fellow painter. He should have said he was a painter and was learning how to bid. Not to mention the wall sq footage doesnt add up with the floor sq footage.

I could be wrong, but have a gut feeling he posted a thread yesterday that was closed I would have been willing to give some tips if the guy didnt try to fool me by acting like he was a customer. I learned much of my estimating from other painters helping me and have no problem paying it forward Then again, I have also learned a good bit by losing my a$$ on a few jobs too. Anyway, I wanna hear how the new Paint Shaver is working out?

It's a beast and you have to be careful but I was getting a handle on it.

Did you ever use one of their sanders?
We have the shavers and a bunch of their sanders. Buy one sander then make your own. They are angle grinders. Call them up and order parts to change them out. Great thing is they spin at 10k rpm and are great. Bad thing is that the twist on sanding discs are expensive. Plus side is that you can sand almost flat so you use the whole disc. Once you get one, you will laugh at the Makita.

Thanks. I already have the same grinder that they use for the paint shaver. I'll check into getting the parts.
