We have just finished watching your Workshop DVDs and found them full of good advice. I especially liked the reason you gave for requesting labor-only bids - that your lawyer won't let you have the sub furnish the materials due to liens from material suppliers. I will definitely use that!

I need to bring electric 800' in off the main line. Anyone have estimates for this? I keep trying to reach the electric company, but no response so far. I'd like to bring it in via a trench, but that may be too expensive for me.

Hello Rich,

We had to pay our power company a $500 deposit to run a cost estimate for our build. But, I can tell you it was cheaper for us to go underground then overhead, because we did all the digging and the work ourselves, and we didn't have to buy all those poles. We went approximately 1,000' from the pole we had to buy to our house. If I were to add all it together, the power company, backhoe, PVC, sand, three boxes (one was a Christy box, one a transformer, and one a junction box), and a cement pad for the transformer, it cost us about $20,000 total. That was June, 2007. If you give me a couple weeks I could pull all my paperwork and give you exact amounts for each item.

Hope this helps.

We have to run our lines about 500' from the street. It was cost-prohibitive to go above ground with poles. It was much cheaper to trench in the lines. Our final bids came in right at $11,000. That included a $350 hookup fee by the electric company, the install of a pole at the street by a third-party electrician, trenching from the pole to our house (about 500'), installation of electric line, water line, phone line, and cable TV in the two trenches. It broke down to about $2,500 for trenching, $7,000 for electric, and $1,700 for water.


To put in poles all the way to the house would have cost about $40,000.
