I did find it very frustrating watching other houses start after us, pass us and finished well before us...I think AllCastle are becoming one of the slowest builders around...The quality…

Yes, you are correct it does include 2 drying out days for adverse weather only, so that would be only if it rained heavy in the proceeding days. That is…
