    Anyone have an idea what to charge per foot for putting up a woven wire fence . My neighbor offered to pay half the cost but I don't know if I should even charge for my time or just for material What is considered normal for this ?

    I belive you should charge for your time too, becuase if you were using a fencing company, they charge you and your neighbor for labor.

    If he is going to benefit from the fence as much as you are, then if he were to pay for material and you provide the labor seems like a good idea. Though if the fence is mainly for your benefit and he was not going to fence it anyway then you are lucky if he gives you anything, so half the material cost would probably be wonderful. Just my opinion....
