I'm a contractor on the list. Typically we work 3-6 month stints and the
rates David suggests are pretty accurate. I probably wouldn't sign up
any where for more than a year. I also don't "go home" at weekends, I
just relocate myself to where the work is so generally require at least
3 month contracts. But I'd suggest a month minimum for most local
contractors as you'd be more at the 300+ end of the scale for anything less.
