All you need to know about Mapleville, Rhode Island

I sometimes use a lead generating service called Thumbtack to find customers.
The current payment scheme means I might pay $40-$60 for one contact.
Most people don't even describe the job. This guy did.

MY name is Finn B. Maybe I accidentally hired you to make a birdhouse which is less than 500 square feet?

Hi Finn
Its going to cost you $1600 for a full set of construction drawings for a 400 square foot clay birdhouse.
Plus the cost of prints and also a Structural Engineer's stamp.
The plans will get you a Building Permit from the town.

I could add a small clay Deck for a total cost of $2500.

Sorry to bother you, but is there any chance you could make it a bit bigger? 499 square foot, perhaps? Or does the deck increase the size?

Thanks a lot,
Finn B

Making it a bit bigger is fine, it wont effect the cost.

Uhm, this has to be built on your property, not at your friends house.

Well technically I don't build them, I just design Custom Clay Bird Houses.
Building one on a mine seems dangerous. Mines do collapse and clay houses are fragile.
