Subject: Right now cash is god
I am having a new wall built this week that would have cost me over 12K 6
months ago.
Due to the down turn in work I am able to get it done for 5K right now.

Next week I will be shopping swimming pools :)
I hate to see people out of work am I am glad I can help out a few good
people.
Better something than nothing.

Just so long as you didn't spend all your cash on.... Cripes you
don't day trade, but it is down 75%, 50% in a month... It is going to
be delisted before a year is up. They will never sell enough of their
business to pay the feds back.


Shhh.... Keep holding it. You might be able to build a wall.

I am surfacing a patio with pavers.

Pavers - $650 per thousand
Mortar Mix - $120 per thousand
Labor for a brick layer $350 per thousand

It would be impossible for me to cut this cost by more than half.

New home starts are way down, but it hasn't affected material costs. I
may do slightly better on labor, but it won't amount to much.

I am trying to figure out how you could save 60%

Is this a mud wall and the cost is all labor?

No disrespect, but I know that's not the point of his post and you
would too, if you read the post. Arlo is just stating the economy is
so bad, that people will take far less these days to do the same work
they wouldn't have done for the money they're now being paid.

If Arlo was trying to rub something in, or embelish his status, he'd
have had his wall put up for 12k awhile ago.

You're missing the point of his post (and most of his other posts) which
is "I'm rich and youre not!"

Maybe.
I can't say.

Nevertheless.
I'm not so infested with class envy that I sneer at people who are
willing to spend money to keep the economy going.
