I told him $7,000 labour for hang and finish. Out of his price range... "by quite a bit" mean while the house is almost down town on the waterfront building a house between two doctors homes. Oh well, worry about the jobs you do get. Not the ones you dont!
thing is you are right about not worrying about it

This is a finishing detail that is becoming quite popular in Victoria BC. I use Trim Tex 1/2" X3/4" shadow line for the flush mount base board (this gives me a 1/4" lap behind to function as a slip joint) and 1/2"X1/2" Shadow line around doors and windows continue the theme. This house had 13,000 ft of board. Total cost Materials and Labour was just shy of $30,000. If memory serves $7000 was for the shadow detail. I had the carpenters attach a strip of wood at the height of the baseboard plus 1/2" ontop of finished flooring height. that way the boardmen could hang the walls normally and router off the precise amount. I could then place my shadowline tight to the bottom of the board.
