Great topic title, huh?
I told a lady that I'd install a wall oven for her. Turns out that the wall oven is a bit small for the hole that the oven its replacing sits in. So I'm stuck filling the gap with 2x4's, then trimming around it w/matching oak trim, cutting that to size, mitering, detailing, etc.
I have a handyman back ground, so I've done these things before, but if I'm an appliance guy, when should I call it quits?
I stick the thing in the hole, and it is too small. (save the smart comments
So I figure out what I'd do to make it work for me.
That means driving 30 miles to get the stuff, and loading up handyman tools so I can get the job done. After all that, I can't finish during work hours, so I have to go back tomorrow.
Anyway, I assume I'll do a great job, and she'll be happy, but what'll I charge?
Do I just say it costs X, Pay Me!
Do I eat this to help her out / get good word of mouth, or do I say "Not My Job" from the get-go?
What do you guys think?
How far are you willing to go?
