    ....^^^.. That's about 25 Tandem loads at $4,000 per load for their gravel and delivery.

    FWIW .... I was paying about $1,200 a 22-25 ton Tandem load on granite gravel in about 1999 0r early 2000.

    Included the cost of gravel and delivery from a granite quarry about 10 miles away.

    Local place has 1” crusher run for $20/ton, that’s $11,400 for 570 ton.
    I have no clue how they came up with $100,000, unless that included hauling it from 100 miles away :notsure:

    so 570 tonnes of gravel works out to approx 380 cubic yards which kinda checks out with size of wall you are backfilling , but cost per yard to get to $100K for material is about 6 times what we pay here and we have expensive gravel in my area . I assume that figure includes trucking too , but are they trucking it from another country ?

    Just found out they were talking about a 6’ wall, not 10’ like I was told. I’m calling him back after lunch.

    I just ran the numbers, and I'd be paying somewhere around $13,500; how in the F*** can it cost you $100K???????

    I think they were planning on trucking them in from 100+ miles away, instead of using the quarry here in town.

    Glad to see that "remodeled" doesn't mean changed to white. I love color and texture in cabinets even if it's not in vogue this year. Looks great!

    Part of my day job is being an owner's representative for commercial building projects. There is a guy with a concrete crusher that turns old foundation concrete into gravel. He makes BANK with that machine. On one project the new building needed to go in the footprint of the old one. Because of the topology of the site the contractor was going to have to bring in a lot of fill. So they brought the crusher machine in, and even though it was expensive it was far cheaper than hauling out the old concrete and bringing in gravel. The owner loved it too. They were all over Instagram with how green they were being by not filling up the land fill with concrete. Truth is they were green environmentally and fiscally.

    Maybe I can start a GoFundMe account and ask for gravel, not money! Or an OnlyFans account....
    (Didn’t know that existed until I saw it on the news! Most times the wife doesn’t want to see it, so maybe I should do both.)

    Good call on doing the epoxy floor before moving in. Just did the same in my garage, but it was a huge PIA moving all the crap out of there...

    I think they just added one too many zeros, cost is 10,000 and you're getting a good deal :fingerscrossed:
