If you know the builder of the home, contact them. They could still have the plans archived. Long shot though maybe.

only concern i have with that is that it's a huge corporation that built it so i feel like there is like a 2 hour phone call involved with that for them to just tell me it's going to cost an insane amount and i'm not going to want to do it.

Meeting with builders today and tomorrow to go over our blueprints of 2200sq ft one story house and get pricing.

We're in NW Ohio. Any guesses on total cost of the build?

We are not doing anything too fancy. Not finishing the basement right away. Vaulted ceilings. But other than that pretty basic/normal for the most part.

What a process.....

Just met with both builders today who bid out the cost of our house (2,157 sq. ft.)

Builder A - $463,000

Builder B - $445,000

Pretty wild. With the purchase of the lot were looking at half a million. Luckily, we have a home now that we are in and will sell and can use the profit there towards the down payment of new home.
