Nope. Not really. Here in St. Pete, that's not a bad price at all.

I would definitely pay for someone else to be liable if it took off in the wind and my Homeowner's Insurance wouldn't cover it because I took the cheapest way out. Or so I thought. Be safe, G

My auto repair station has a sign that reads:

If I do it, $500
If you want to watch, $750
If you want to help, $1000
If you already did the job, and I need to fix it, $2000

Sounds like you already prepared the plans. You may be lucky to get an engineer to fix them (if they need fixing) for $500.
