I have a client that is wanting a quote for doing a mobile version of this site: [http://www.niepagens.com/](http://www.niepagens.com/ “http://www.niepagens.com/”) (he is subcontracting out the web work) Anyway, I could really use a little advice on this one. First of all I had nothing to do with the existing site. My first thought was that we should just redo the entire thing and make it responsive… kill two birds with one stone kinda thing. Unfortunately, I don’t think my client will be up for that. I’m not real sure how much I should quote for this. I just know I’m going to have to basically start from scratch and make a completely separate mobile version of the site. Anyway, any thoughts and advice would be appreciated.

Why don’t you take this opportunity to design mobile first responsive site for the sub-domain (m.domain.com). Then when the client decides to implement responsive across different platforms, the code/content is already there and just needs to be extended instead of scrapping the whole thing, redoing and wasting time.
That is definitely something to think about. Now I still have to figure out what to quote for this project. It sounds like I may have to put in more work than what I charge for on this one in hopes of getting the future work.
