Now the $10,000/month, is very high, seems a little hokey to me.
ARI Construction hired my Rick and is paying him $2,300/week. I'll have to ask him about expenses. it was too good for him to pass up. ARI Construction has a 10-yr contract. hell, it just went into the paper last week and they are headed for Savannah next week.

I dont think 2500 bucks a week to build a ton of nice, new houses is a huge amount of money. Now the real question for you friend is, is the 10K a month just for his pay, or does he have to pay all his employees out of that, and all that other jazz?

One of this contracts is in our military base in my neck of the woods in GA, they demolished the old base housing in the base and now is to be rebuild, gave the out of Base military housing to the city.
I can only imagine that as the troops move back from their duties in the middle east is going to be a wave of housing needs.

He may think he will get $10,000 a month - and very well may - if everything stays on track.
The military gives out contracts as a lump sum / completion date final basis. That is, it is NOT a per hour/month/year rate - it is a per PROJECT rate.
If the job is done on time ( lets say estimated at 6 months ) you will get your $60k - it works out to be $10k per month.
Now lets say the job takes 10 months because of material handlers strikes or what have you, now you will make $6K a month.
Also, I heard a report of a large number of single and multi family home building permits being applied for by a contractor with ties to overseas military construction firms, in Gilmer, Fannin, and White counties, but a Google search I did last week turned up nothing noteworthy to support this. These North GA counties, coincidentally, either border or have large areas of them in the Chattahoochee Ntl Forest
