Tom,
I'm also in the Detroit area. I usally bid 2.00 per sq ft and that is for basic wiring. I don't include the service, recessed cans, ceiling fans, garage, fixtures, etc. I don't do that many new homes in the area.

Blessings
Mark

This is very interesting. I've never bid at a square foot price, but then new construction for builders isn't my niche.

Are these prices for EMT or something else???
