I'd be just above a grand on the splashes, and somewhere roughly around $4500 on the bathroom.
What area are you in, Mike? I've found that some areas, like Florida, can occasionally be half my bid, and others, like NY city, can be approaching double.

Plenty of people that will do it for that down here too!

I may be too high on the bathroom work, did not see the base insert til later.

It's all in who you want to work for.

There are people that will pay $2000 for that, and your name will be mud.

There are people that will pay $8000 for that, and think the sun rises and sets on you.

I would payout $2075 for labor if that bathroom was in a hotel with another 199 rooms to install. So for a one off job it would be higher.

If they are happy and you are happy then thats the best deal.

Bid

You need to understand we are in a cost based business. Things like overhead, labor costs, material costs, markup, profit are things you need to understand before giving a price. So many guys get caught up in allowing the builder or homeowner telling you what they will pay you. They also charge what the next guy charges. Why, because they do not know what their costs are. There is a race to the bottom with so many contractors. You want to price your work where you make a reasonable profit. No profit, you might as well work for someone else and not assume the risk. Charles Vander Kooi said we are in the riskiest business in the world. We are doing a job with the hope of being paid after the job is complete. It is worse odds than Vegas in a lot of situations. If you are unsure go out and purchase Michael Stone's Markup and Profit books. It will give you a better feel of what you should be doing, not what you should not be doing. Go out and buy the e-myth or E-myth contractor by Michael Gerber. These books will give you a lot of insight of the business end of our trade.
God Luck John Cox
