Once again, as I prepare to pour concrete for my RV's parking pad I'm also preparing to have a new, bigger and wider gate fabricated and installed.
I try not to do anything half way so I search through google and found some designer gates.
I like this one but didn't want to have the same exact design......
So I modified it in Photo Shop and took the center piece off of this gate and PSed it onto what I was trying to create.
I then finished it off with the swans I liked on this set of gates.
After I finished my final design I asked for an estimate and the fellow laughed and said "boy oh boy, you sure have very expensive taste!"
I said well how much are we talking for something as simple as this:
He took his calculator out and starting punching number like crazy, I was like......
...... few minutes later he goes, that would be $6800 but if you want us to install it that would be another $800. My eyes about pop out its sockets...
.... now does that price include the Vaseline or do I have to bring my own, I asked. " Nope, you have to provide you own", he replied.
Well how much for this one then:
"Minus the swans, take off $1800 of the price I gave you." Still that is $5800 with installation I replied.
OK how much for something like this:
"Minus $2500 off of $5800, that would be $3300 including installation." But still no Vaseline right, I added. "Nope." he retorted.
I shopped with 3 other rod iron fencing and gate companies and all came way higher than Mr. 小寶 / 小宝 (Chungwanlow
So I placed the order for the $3300 one.
