How many crew?

How many crew?

Fellow simians:
One key part of the Travis and Leslie estimate is labor, and one key 
aspect of that is how many monkeys we want to send.  We need a minimum 
of 2 people to run the thing, but 3 might help in terms of supporting 
the person in the attic with hose wrangling and general safety.
I'd sort of rather put 3, although that jacks the price from $961 to 
$1135.  Open to thoughts.

I say safety first, especially since a) we lack insurance and b) co-ops 
are in general about creating better and safer working conditions. 
That's part of our overhead, so if you as the chief feel safer with 3 
then let's go for that.

Good point.  I think 3 to run it would be good.
Another question: how about training?  Would we want one or more people 
to come and scope it out so they would be trained for insulation work 
next time?  And would they be paid, or would they maybe just earn some 
equity (like attending a meeting)?

I.e. what's the materials, labor costs, overhead for each bid?

I would say 3 also. Do we know how much this difference will help them?
Also,I forgot if I mentioned this at the meeting, but I think we should ask
them to (or ask them to let us) call some other people to get quotes so we
know what the competition is like and to see where we are with our pricing.

Donny,
Travis will be here either tonight after 9 or tomorrow morning if you want
to talk to him about the quote then I'll come find you (also I'm gonna need
the staple guns, and I have a check for you.)
