House Delivery Date

The big news this week is that we have our build date for the house!

Unfortunately this will be 20th October which is 10 weeks away.  We were extremely disappointed with this. Contractually it is allowed as there is a maximum of 10 weeks wait after cellar handover and it is 10 weeks to the day that our house will be built.

The main issue we have is that verbally we have continually been told it takes 6 weeks from the cellar completion to the house build.  Allkauf say it is due to summer holidays causing delays to the schedule but whatever the reason it completely disrupts our plans for the rest of the year as I have a month of paternity leave planned in September specifically for when the house will be built and we have a kindergarten place lined up for Sophie from February in Mühlhausen (next to Lehningen). Not to mention that we are in the process of selling our flat. If we can't move in before the end of January we will have some major logistical issues to deal with and Steffi may not be able to go back to work as was planned in March.

Maybe Allkauf can take some of our issues in to account and move the date forward. We will have a chat with them next week to see what's possible.
