Builders got hit just as hard as everybody else with the housing market crash. There are plenty of builders out there who would construct a nice new home for you right now at about $80. - $90./square foot. You could probably get several upgrades thrown in as well.
Do you have a builder in mind? You might contact one or two who have built on Fleming Island previously, who know the area, and have crews readily available in the FI area. This would also help keep costs down for you.
Please call if you need assistance and Good Luck with your new home!

All the answers are great. I like the two following builders. Look at their web sites for additional details.

The price depends on the Builder, the Upgrades, and the Size. In the past 120 dollars per foot would get a top quality house with granite in the 2800-3000ft size. In todays market builders are hungary. You may be able to get as low as 85per ft. If you built with no upgrades, I have heard of builders in the 65 range.
Please call 904-465-3852 and I can give you names and numbers of builders in different ranges.
