It would depend on my schedule.

Maybe tell him...During the consult phase we're going to come in, tone out the wiring, verify this, double check that. Then make recommendations. Then the ball is in your court, you know what you're getting into...and obviously charge him for toning everything out regardless if you take the job or not.

Agreed. If you are busy say thanks but no thanks. If you are it.

Charge for your time to verify whats there. That may be a day or a week. We call it "Discovery".

Ask the client for a document/drawing for how he wants things connected. If he doesn't have that charge for your time to create a system design. If he does have it and its not going to work charge for your time to correct it.

Make sure you structure payment so that you are collecting a small percentage at the end vs working for free and being strung along forever with "it never worked right and thats why i havent paid".
