I see two mistakes:

- first, your client wanted to hire you “to save money”. You can’t compete with a production cabinet shop on price, so that was never going to happen.
- second, you’re near the end, and you’re just now trying to figure out how much to charge? You need to have that figured out first. And with your client expecting it to be cheap, either you take a huge hit, or he gets shocked.

I’m glad I’m not going to have to be in the room when you have that conversation. Good luck.
