It's nice that they are doing that, but it's kind of bold of them to be delaying people this early. It means they've effectively given up their second tentative closing date and can only delay people one more time without penalty.

I'm quite surprised too--as I mentioned, my previous builder only notified us right before the 90-day deadline, and I assumed this was the norm for builders since it keeps their options most flexible.

I definitely appreciate it though (it really helps us plan out our finances better for closing next year with a more accurate timeline).

We actually signed for our Caivan home just over a week ago and are picking our structural and outdoor colours tonight. Can anyone let me know how quickly the design appointments come after that? Our closing is currently set for August 2020.

I think it should be soon--we close late July 2020 (after it got delayed 3 months) and will be going to our design appointments very soon (they emailed us to book the appointments about a month ago). However, we also bought our house during the opening weekend last October, so if they are going in order of purchase it might take longer for you. I believe builders do want to have the design selections finalized prior to breaking ground though, and Caivan told us they want to start breaking ground in August, so if that's the case I think you should be getting your appointments sometime this summer.

Doesn't hurt to ask the sales centre--I've found them to be very helpful and try to answer all questions if possible.

Caivan has 900 homes off Greenbank up for city approval in August.

Update: going to need a new thread for Caivan's "The Ridge". It's a new community on their website coming this summer in Barrhaven, east of Borrisokane.

Thought I would post an update on the development. I went by last week and alot of progress has been made. Most of all the roads are paved, temporary Street signs are up (which was cool) and they have started excavation on some lots. The lots that were excavated also had the plumbing ran. Lots happening

I received an email about two weeks ago saying our home has started excavation for the foundation. Took a drive down Jockvale and you can see at least half a dozen house's framed already. Curious if anyone has anymore information regarding frameing walkthroughs, communication with the builder, or if the closing dates are also still on target? Also Caivan's newest community launched last weekend and was shocked at the price jump. Guess I should not be surprised in this market.

Can you post a price list? Or discuss the price difference?

Just wanted to mention that I drove through the Caivan's Richmond development and stopped someone walking their dog to ask if:

a. they lived there; and
b. how has the experience been so far

They said they do in fact live there and there experience thus far with the quality and after move-service has been great.
