Around here, while they charge by the foot, it equates to around $100 per hour.

There is overhead and travel time between jobs that waters down the profit. However, I think it's keeping the calendar full that's the issue, which you know here will go to zero for 6 months per year. Otherwise, it seems it can be a petty good living.
