We then determined that some things were not obvious such as paying additional for fixtures (bathroom, have attempted to contact him for 2 days,but unable. No money has changed hands. Our original assumption was that his offer was similar to but better than others we had received. Afterwards, we discovered while other offers had included the cost of materials, his did not.

In Florida, if you contract for services to be rendered in the future on a continuing basis, you are entitled to a three day cooling-off period. You are also entitled to cancel a contract for future services if you can no longer physically receive the services, or the services are no longer available as originally offered.

Likewise, if you purchase goods or services during the course of a "home solicitation sale," you maintain a three-day right to cancel. A sale is considered a "home solicitation sale" if it takes place in your home, or at a location which is not the main or permanent place of business for the seller, so long as the purchase price is more than $25.
