Saturday afternoon, I plan to drive out to the country to give a customer a quote for adding ventilation fans to all of the buildings on the property.
The farmer requested a quote for five large barns and a hen house.
The job on the property is going to be at least $10,000. I don’t have an exact quote for the customer, but the square footage is very high and that will require industrial-sized ventilation fans. I’m sure the farmer knows the job won’t be cheap, because he mentioned some brands to me and none of them are cheap. Most of the ventilation fans are made by companies that primarily deal with farm equipment. I don’t have any other job scheduled for Saturday, so I can spend several hours looking at all of the buildings. I’d like to detail a plan so I can give the farmer an estimate a day or two after I finish looking at the property. I have a lot of time coming up next month and I think that the farming job would be perfect to fill in the time. I have a couple of contractors that are good with heights and working on ladders. If I can get a large crew together, we can tackle the job in a couple of days. If I go there with a couple of guys, it might take us a week or two. It depends on what the farmer wants and how much money he is willing to spend in order to get the job done efficiently and quickly.
