Overall, we were expecting delays (we're originally from TO so have heard hundreds of horror stories of months to years of delays) -- so we are not super surprised or upset...and we are really impressed they told us about it so far ahead of the game -- and gave us a call and are sending a letter as well...(which they could have just sent the letter)...
Hi All,

We're lot 157 on Gracewood, Tamarack Oxford. We just got delayed as well to June 9 (month and 1/2 delay). LDR we're going be neighbours! Drove by and our footings are in ( if that's what they're called) and it looks like the forms for the foundation are right in front of my dirt pile too.

I'll be interested to find out what the delay is.

I'd welcome a delay of a few weeks. We are set to close on May, 20
11 but June or early July would be much better.

We're with Tartan but we have not heard anything about a delay yet, and we've been asking.

We are already in FC

the Sharkman is in the water...watch out!!

I drive by every couple of days. When I saw the foundation starting we got real excited... a llittle disheartning to hear about the delay but what can you do.

We've got one kid ...he'll be 4 when we move in ....Any news about the park going in?

I personally do not want any delays, but I would expect one, because our model has never been built before, we are the first ones. They have some new ideas for the house. Already some mistakes were found in the plan.

Hi Tuckercub,

We're just a few houses down!

Nice! That's what we looked at originally (model was out in Jackson Trails I think). We opted for the Oxford for the layout of kitchen and great room. We have our electrical on Thursday and then the final sign off in December....might delay that a bit since we just got delayed by a month and half.

This our first new build as we're moving from a house built in the 60's ....lots of reno's love the house but no kids in the area.

Not sure if you posted it already but when's your close date?
