    OK, I must confess I am not DIY-ing it this time, but I gotta ask... I am having a mini-split heat pump/AC unit installed in my 2-car garage, a 16 SEER, 12,000 BTU Airtemp. Both estimates I got were for the same number: $3,600. I cannot for the life of me find a definitive answer about how...

  8. Painting
    What do customers want from a painting company? Is it a good price, or an immaculate paint job? Let's pretend that you cannot have both, you have to pick cost or quality. I understand that to be a successful painting company, you need to find a healthy medium between the two. Price, product...

    I am a student at Cal Poly SLO and i'm trying to estimate the cost of building a 'simulation warehouse' next to another existing building.
