Project estimate with hourly rates

Question

I design websites for customers. I provide an estimate at the beginning, but charge hourly for time worked at the end. I charge different hourly rates based on the type of work:

  • Design: $60 per hour
  • Development: $80 per hour
  • Consulting: $100 per hour

How do I charge for that?
