To MrBreeze & CaptTomD:
You both seem to have a long experience on Marco Island. I have seen many absentee home builders that were shafted by fly by night contractors who were, and are now, being miss-lead by low-ball advertising, ie: $170/+/- per sf.
People like some of the commentators to this story do not understand that an Inspectors job is to insure compliance with codes, and are not there to inspect, or comment on the Quality of the work, or the person performing the work.
Unless they are buying a “Cookie Cutter”, from a builder with a set of plans, I believe a person planning to build here should first work with an Architect and Engineer, pay for, and own a set of plans. Then take multiple bids for the project from Contractors willing to work on the Project Management, Cost Plus Approach, and show the Client at least two bids for every item in the home.
This will result in a high quality home, and result in hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings.
Do you agree???
