Re: "re-use" fees

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Our office charges $750 as a minimum which covers the client for
approximately seven hours of work. A 2,500 sft house would obviously take
more than seven hours.

The point I was trying to make is that there should be a minimum for
everything. Even if you end up spending one hour on it.
