Take your pick - probably about $7-10/hr for pickup manual day labor in rural NH, on up to $150-200/hr for higher-end technicians downstate nearer MA.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in NH the average construction (and extraction - mining) job category wage is around $24/hr, from about $16 for laborers to low $30's average for master plumbers and electricians. This is actual wage - add 50-125% typically for benefits and overhead and such.

I recommend, wherever possible (where scope of work is defineable in advance, or once it becomes defineable after maybe some initial inspection work) that you go with a firm bid for work - avoids incentives to drag the job out and work slow and take a lot of coffee breaks.
