I am in Central Florida area. How much would it cost for foundation & concrete walls for a 2 story home?

800 sqft living area 2nd floor
22 x 22 garage

10 foot ceiling for both floors

You've posted every where on this web site thinking you can come up with your building cost on here. Not going to happen. All you will have is a bunch of guesses.
Hire a GC and let him give you a price for the whole house.
If you have never been a general contractor and have never built your own home before your going to have to go through one at some point any way. The banks not going to lend money to a DIY and you can not get the permits to build it.

Why would you want 10 ft. ceilings? The home would cost about 10% more to heat and cool and cost far more to build, plus there would be far more waist when building it.
SHeetrock and wall sheathing come in 4 X 8 sheets so there's goning to be far more time for all the extra cutting and nailing.
