Change the Total Demo Room by square feet price to customer
- Changing the production rate of the demo will change the $ per square foot
- Changing the price of the demo labor will also change the $ per square foot
If the demolition can be done more quickly that the default 25 square feet per hour then adjust the 25 to a number that is more fitting. If the number of hours that calculates is correct then move on to change the price of the general labor to more closely match the need. Cutting the general labor price per hour from $50 to $25 will also cut the price per square foot of this assembly in half from $2.00 per square foot to $1.00 per square foot. Increasing the price of the labor will have an equal but opposite
The price of General Labor (hour) can also be changed. This is done by searching for the General Labor (hour) and editing that labor item to the new General Labor price. If there is a change to the General Labor (hour) price all of the other assemblies that use General Labor will also reflect this new hourly price.
Both the labor price and the production rate can be changed as well.
