How much would that equate to?

I am figuring, around 10,800 bucks? If bought in the store.

I used a 14 gauge, 1000ft on the roll. Used miminum 400bucks x 27=10,800. I am sure not all rolls were 14, some might had been heavier & more expensive.

I am bored, I got the flu, lol.

Okay... update. Heard on the news, the estimate was alittle over 25,000 bucks.

Sounds like a plumber or, more likely, an electrician to me.

Sounds like someone trying to pay their property and income taxes.
