First - a back story:
I had someone quote me on a 62ft fence at 7 feet high. It was just for one side of fence, no major hills, just a slight downslope to the end of the property. We discussed using the cheapest materials/wood available, and with a horizontal design (photo attached for reference), minimal gaps between planks for privacy. Also, we said that a step down would be fine to make it easier than trying to perfectly account for the slope down. No painting or staining needed, I wanted to do that myself.
He quoted me $8000 (not including old fence tear down - that was an additional $850). The fence is shared with a neighbour, and they have a large shed halfway down their backyard, so the fence would only need to be 2 sided for half of it.
At 62ft, that works out to $129/linear foot.
What are your thoughts on the above quote?
What SHOULD I be paying per linear foot for a basic wood fence using the cheapest Pressure Treated wood available?
Thanks so much for your time!
Sorry, forgot to attach reference

Thank you everyone for your responses! I was quite sure that it was a very high quote, especially not using any special or quality wood.
