Why settle for 6% of the value of the structural work?  Although we occasionally settle for this, we frequently get 8% or 9%, and occasionally get up to 14%.  In my opinion, anyone working for less than 6% of the value of the structural work is doing themselves, their families, and the profession a disservice!
