Advice for building in Florida

Colin Etheridge
5 days ago

I'm looking to build a home in Central Florida (bartow specifically). I'd like to do a CO build (builder does frame, electric, plumbing, ac, etc. I do finish work like floors, trim, etc.)
I keep getting quotes that seem insane - think like 400-500k to build 2100 square feet (unfinished)
Am I missing something? The house is a fairly simple 2 story, and I cannot imagine it being anywhere near worth that. Is this normal?
