$5 an hour is good money nowdays...if your in high school. To me you are an adult and there is such a thing as minimum wage, employed or unemployed. I do agree with some of the other comments. Being they are helping you out puts a different spin on things though, and makes it more difficult. Since you dont know what to charge for what they want done, why not call a place that does this type of work and see if you can get a general idea what they would charge, and then go from there. If you undercut their price being they are helping you out then you arent taking advantage of anyone, you can sleep, and would be fair. You kind of have to go with what you feel comfortable with. I do know people that want as much work done as possible and want to pay under what they should. I have experienced it personally. I worked for a neighbor a few years ago for $5 an hour hauling sileage. They complained indirectly to someone else thinking that some of the people / kids (I wasnt a high school kid, was in my 30s) figuring they need $5 an hour, as they were paying an older retired guy $2 an hour. My dad said if you have a $50,000 dollar tractor the guy driving it better be worth $5 an hour, meaning not just anyone can run it. I dont even know anyone personally that has a pool lol.
