Thanks again for all the helpful insight oh the insulation. I am now wondering if paying 6 grand for the framing only is to expensive for what seems to be a little bit of work. I am doing all the demolition, and all they are going to do is add the strength to the rafters. So does anyone think I am out in left field in this one?? I am going to also install the electrical, insulation, and drywall.
Some guys around here will frame an entire house for $4.00 sq ft.
That's $8,000.00 for a 2000sqft house.
The market could be very different there. You need to ask around and don't tell any other bidders how much this guy is charging.
Keep in mind that remodeling is much more expensive than building, but $6000.00 for framing a room or two with some rafter/truss work seems rediculous. Does this include any drawings by engineers or architects?

He has a contractors license in another state, but is applying for one here in VA. He is in the military and does structural engineering for his job. He and his crew do lots of side work around the area. He was referred to me by a guy at work. There aren't any drawings. He said it would be about 3 grand in materials. I think he is just blowing smoke. I have made up my mind not to go through with him and to get another contractor. I can't wait till I get my contractor license!!!
