Typical eh, they want really good contractors and a spot on job, but want to pay crap money. Hope you told him to take a long run off a short pier.

Re: Wow this industry


You get $6 a square meter to finish? Thats really good imo. The rate here is no where near that. Pretty sure its more like $2.50ish plus gst. Not 100% sure on that, not entirely sure how much the boss takes. If you don't mid me asking, what are your hanging rates and cornicing rates. Totally fine if you don't want to answer
