Paint a home that is sized;
Ground floor- 12 mtr x 10mtr =120mtr2

Top floor 10mtr x 8 metres
Top roof area - 10mtr x 8 metres

Pool house
4 x cement posts only, that elevate the roof which is 4 mtr x 6 mtrs=24m2
Paint roof sunny side
Paint roof underneath as well
Floor doesn't require painting

Two colors white and pastel yellow for home and pool house
........

Electrical
Price to rewire a home...all electrical sockets wires completely removed and replaced, fuse box etc etc.

Given i am away i have hired a contractor to organise this for me by obtaining various trades people to complete the work. I accept this may elevate the price which i accept, i just dont want to be gouged

IMO the quote for the "electrical" part of the job should be expanded. More details in the contract re; how many outlets, wiring for code, repairs of all damage to walls (painter or electrician) permits, who inspects etc.

"rewiring" means different things to different people. ie: replacing the outlets, like changing them for brown to white, is not "rewiring". And with you away how will you check that part of the job?

Good ballpark number. I paid 20K for a typical 3br/2 bath apartment, which included interior walls and ceiling. No doors or windows.

My guess for jolly roger would be around $35/$40 due to the complexity and variety of things to be painted since it sounds like a two-story building.

Electrical? The description is too vague.

Honestly I think you are crazy getting work done when you are away. I have a project manager who supervises all the building work I have done (I own various in the capital) but I still insist I am physically here when anything major is happening. Very often problems arise, people don't turn up, people disappear with materials, etc. etc. The standard of workmanship is usually very low and even if you're using an expat things go wrong.
