I suggest you stay away from this but not because of the price you quoted . You can quote whatever you like . It has to be something you live with if you are short in the end . You make a great rate of pay from the present employer you have . You certainly won't make 23 an hour doing this job . Why not ask her for some extra hours ??? That seems like a no brainer ??? Good luck in whatever you decide to do .

If he's giving you $1300 for labor and you are saving that, I say giv'r man! If you've learned enough in the last 8 months take you maybe 3 days to paint that, that's wicked money. But yeah, see it first, and find out what paint he's gonna buy, sucks working harder or doing three coats because they cheaped out on paint. What city are you in in Canada? That's a good wage for your experience, I've never paid any of my friends that much to work for me.

PS, just don't post it up on a public forum for the CRA to find you are making unclaimed incomes

Btw, if you are saving it you should just buy gold or silver. If I had done that 10 years ago it would have tripled in value! Just don't let this guy screw you.
