What do the drawings say? Are they a little more sensible or give you something to go back to them on?

Cutting down or waiting to start build?

Another suggestion is to see what deal the builder may offer if you were sign now instead of deferring.

Got the keys today

That looks great Melos.
Congratulations!
The photos look like they could be in a product brochure. Very tidy.
I agree trees can really gum up the works when building.

You can always check it with a colour swatch.
