Central Florida builder Ted Huggins built Brandywine, the first condominiums in the area of College Park. His grandfather was one of the first contractors in Orange County.
In this oral history interview on May 8th, 2012 Ted and Josephine Huggins, share their colorful stories of working together building the condominiums located on Dubsdread golf course. Ted’s wife Josephine, who has a background in fashion design and expertise in fiber construction, noticed the carpet the owner was paying for was not the carpet being put down on the floors.
The Huggins recall how Jo, who was Ted’s girlfriend at the time, became the field superintendent on the Brandywine project and “ran the best field office we’ve ever had” according to owner Huffman. They would later leave the company, start their own and work for Huskey Realty on the building of Sweetwater Oaks.
