The woman I babysit for asked my husband if he would build them a playhouse like the one he built for us for their kids. They are going to pay him and we are not sure how much he should charge. I am pretty close to the family, I obviously love the kids like my own, but he is not close to them (they are dropped off and picked up when he is at work). I know it is A LOT of work and it is sometimes well over 100 degrees here in Texas. I think he should charge less since they are close to me, he thinks because it is a ton of work he should charge more than what I was thinking but a lot less than if it was a stranger. What would you pay a friend to build this playhouse?
Supplies run about $1000, they want the playhouse about a foot taller and a different slide. They do not want the smaller landing/bridge, but pretty much everything else (swings,playhouse,slide,second floor, rockwall,steps etc...) He would have to change up his design some to accommodate them.
