Recently I needed more work that he was to busy for but directed me to a resource where the work cost nothing.
I guess my point is when I first met him I said I was not bidding, he was referred and I will pay his price. He was a bit surprised but said yes to the job and treated me very nice.
Message being...don't always look cheap, look for relation ship and respect for their trade.
To the original post, do definitely lock in soon, establish a relationship and things can/will work out to all sides benefit.
Interesting that you just said that. We met with a builder last night. He told us that the highest RVs on the market are 13.5’ high and that we should consider going 14’ for resale value. If that is the case, should we consider a longer structure than 36’?
My wife has a very keen sense when it comes to judging people’s character (that’s why I can’t get away with anything). After our meeting, she said “he’s the one,” with the caveat that we need to get a couple of other estimates, just to make sure he’s not gouging us.
I’ll let you know the outcome.
