Rainman....it's one of the benefits of living in the country....Ok, I've read all of the replies and I really appreciate them all BUT...
In a town of 2000 people we have one ready mix plant, 10 miles away in the next town, and they recommend one concrete guy that apparently isn't "hungry" since he hasn't kept an appointment or returned a phone call in 3 months.
At this point I think I'm going to have to sub the concrete work out to a company that is going to charge way too much because they're going to have to travel over 90 miles to get to my build site.
Thanks again for everyone's input.
Also a future project will not get much attention, especially if price is mentioned. An individual will never get as good a price as a regular construction customer because of loyalty, payment history, ability to schedule and confidence in the contractors ability to work without problems.
