Tap Posted July 1, 2008 Share Posted July 1, 2008 I am hiring a contractor to finish a 16X20 room in my house. I am having insulation blown in, tape, texture and paint on the walls and laminate installed with trim. The bid is $2200 in labor. We are having them install the laminate from Costco. I was talking to a friend's husband who offered to help me do the laminate for a couple of hundred dollars. The contractor is charging me $600. The husband is a teacher and likes to do odd jobs in the summer and is an adept handy man. I would love to help do the project and I am on vacation for 2 weeks so I have the time right now. If you installed the laminate yourself, was it fairly easy to do? The room has one closet, and one door. Otherwise is it 'rectangular' with no odd spaces or plumbing to cut around. I would like to save the $400 and I would like to help out a friend, but at the same time....I just want the job done, and done right.
