Before we get the hardwood floors, we have to take up the carpet. I already rented the dumpster ($275) so I have to do the work. Carpet, pad, tack strips. Then there are all those staples. The guys who laid the carpet must have been in love with staples because there seems to be about one every foot. Not just around the perimeter, but in the middle too.
I swear, if I knew what this job would entail, it seems so simple, and that they only wanted $425 to do it for me, I would have never rented the dumpster. There comes a time when you have to put a value on your time. Let's see $425 - 275 = $150. Yep. My time is definitely worth that.
I had to give up my run today to do this work. The run alone is worth $150 to me.
