A lot of variables involved. I am having a very different experience.

I am not a metal worker. I can do some basic stuff but not enough skill to tackle it myself. I had to bring in help. Also, my materials cost has been much higher than expected. I priced out the materials when I started the project in the Seattle area. Then I moved.... When I finally got ready to order metal I was shocked at the prices. I got bids from every supplier I could find within 100 miles.

I am almost done with the metal work and have spent $2100+ on materials and $620 on professional services.

I was very fortunate that I had Asetechrail on hand to bring his awesome skills to the project. He did the lions share of the welding and really, was the brains of the raise project.
