Parts needed for a complete wheel build

Hello guys!

I am thinking of building a wheelset and I need to know all the parts I will need.
This is what I have right now(20 front 24 rear build):

2 rims
2 hubs
88 nipples
88 spokes
2 qr levers
2 pieces of rim tape

Is this all I will need? Am I wrong about something?

Also about how much does a wheel build cost from a shop? I know it differs from shop to shop, but how much can I expect? Thanks!!

Here, an LBS (very nice guy owns it) will charge $50 to build a wheel (not including parts).

I would assume you mean 2 rims total and not 2 sets of rims right?

If so, I think your total spoke and nipple count should be 44. Otherwise, your parts are correct. Naturally, spoke tool.

Thread prep??
Tires??
Innertubes??
Tools (spoke wrench etc)

I would consider them part of a wheel.
