Default no roof yet

So my house is up but the roof is not on so there is so much water dripping down into the first floor. The wood is actually soft from the water just sitting there. Would they dry it out or replace it? Is it normal for builders to not put a tarp or something over the wood? So much water.

Your house will be more than dry enough by the time they have to start worrying about what is going on inside.

In new home "developments" this happens often. The home should be dry enough by the time you take possession.

Ideally the water should be swept off the subfloors asap. If not the edges will start to delaminate and can lead to squeaky floors.

These things need to be tolerated in developments and when any new home is built but in custom or single home builds these issues are usually resolved sooner, prevented, or better managed in the first place.

It'll help to know who the builder is.

Any updates on your situation? Is your roof up yet? I'm in the same boat as you. Snow doesnt seem to stop does it?

No, nothing and it looks like there is some wind damage to whatever they had started.

They'll fix it long before you take possession, don't worry.
