Our builder told us last night they are pulling out of the development and not going to build our house.  We are homeless(sort of).

What hurts the most is that we wouldn't have sold our current home if we had known.  Now we are living in a two bedroom apartment - for the price of my old house payment - and have no idea what we are going to do.

Life can really suck sometimes.

Nothing illegal and since they are willing to refund all of our money, no basis for a lawsuit.  It's not entirely their fault as the city wouldn't issue a building permit.  The developer and the city are mad at each other so the city is imposing draconian building codes which essentially makes the house we chose impossible to build.  The builder has two other customers besides us in the same boat.  They are getting pressure from their bank for repayment of loans and they can't build houses to make the money to pay it.  So they are bailing out.  Totally sucks for us as we just got caught in the middle of a pissing match (IMO).

They do have some inventory homes already built and they will let us have one of them for the same price but they don't have all the features we wanted so we don't know if we want to do it or not.  We'll have to go look at them this weekend.

It will all work itself out I'm sure but we started this process back in February and the amount of emotional investment far out weighs the financial investment.  It was supposed to be my wife's dream house and turned into a nightmare.  But - better to have happen now then later I guess.

Man, how can that not be illegal. I will build you a house. Sell your house. I can not build you a house.

I get ya, that isn't how it went down, but still. Seems wrong.

Glad you guys aren't in dire straights, and though ... yes, I was a little blazed when I first went overboard on my initial comment on this  Cheesy I stand by it. Even if you guys, again, are not exactly hurting too badly (other than some emotional stuff, of course). But man, talk about being in a spot.

Hope the wife gets her dream home someplace else.
