    My web designer is making me a html/css site and i would like it integrated into wordpress , however he cant do that so i need to hire yet another person. Its going to be ( as far as i know ) a very simple corporate business site.

    2 Columns, and it has a homepage and then a "page" page. There will be no posts on the site, just a static homepage and then the static pages like "about us" "contact" etc.

    Who can do this, and how much?

    The Question I would rather ask you is why do u want it in Wordpress, if you need just static content. It would make sense if you plan on adding many pages, but personally if thats all you need, why dont u just keep it as html/css

    As for the conversion , it is not as simple as it sounds as the templating architecture of wordpress is different then what an html/css will deliver.

    Yeah, right.

    Depending on what you need it to look like, you should be able to take the FlexSqueeze template (found in Downloads- search for wordpress FlexSqueeze) and plug in your own header, footer, background, etc. that you already have on the static site. You can disable the sidebars if you don't want them so it looks more like a non-WP site.

    If that doesn't work, you would be surprised how many really graphically stunning (or bland, whatever you want) WP templates are out there for free (one way or another). I would be stunned if you couldn't find one that was 90% what you're looking for.

    As far as the existing pages, you could copy/paste it into a new WP page to get the copy/content onto a page.

    I've done this a bit with existing sites for small businesses who need to kick their rankings up substantially and that's 1000 times easier with a WP blog than a static site that's never going to change much (IMHO).
