I am trying to make a budget for my new home that is going to be built within the next 6 months.

I am in need of a rough labour cost for 1400 sq ft of horizontal vinyl siding. I have called a few companies in my area but none of them want to give me a price just for labour.

2nd storey of house, cottage roof so no gables to do.

You're looking at 1.25$ to 2.00$ per sq foot. Depends on the difficulty of the job.

If you were in my area the price would be $ 0.90-1.10 per sq. foot, only for installing siding. Anything else would be extra.

It depends on some other factors as well. I agree with the $1.75 - $2.50 range but if house wrap and add shapes and height become an issue, expect to pay a little more. When it comes time to actually have the work done, ask for a quote that includes everything.
