Free.

Contractors just want the work and will pay for the materials to do it.

Personally, I don't see why we even bother with attempting to answer questions like this.

"build an addition"
"cost per square foot"

If they can't treat our members with any more respect than that, they deserve no help from any of us.
I'm tempted to just remove this thread, and any others I see that are the same way.

An example of what kind of pricing? "Tijuana ramshackle" with dirt and debris as the concrete mix aggregate?

With T1-11 snaked from skate-board ramps?
