How long can timber framing be exposed to weather?

How long can timber framing be exposed to weather?

WOW!! Your builder must be really forward thinking to order the frames way before the slab. I waited for 2 months for the frames to arrive after the slab was poured.

I think if you are happy then pay the deposit and lock it in. Prices will continue to rise! I know quite a few people who have locked in their builder before titles.
