I fixed your link for you clath.
Also speak to the builder about the frame damage. They can replace the noggins that you have shown as damaged, or at least put up another adjacent to (on top or underneath) them for added strength.
See how you go.

That piece of wood is fine!
It is unimportant to the structure..
It is simply there to keep the upright post (stud) from bowing.

Matt is correct - noggins are not as important for load bearing as the stud (upright ones), although I'll agree that the one in the photo isn't a good look.
Was that noggin a once off, or do you have lots of them like that?

I got a few of those as well.
When the other guys start working on other parts of the house (e.g. wall, roof, ..etc), they will knock off a few more... don't worry too much about that.
Just make sure you find an inspector to check it before the internal walls are on!

Thanks guys for having a look at the noggin pic.
Perry there were three noggins like that. I agree its not a good look,
Ahuang sorry didnt understand the meaning behind what you said "they will knock off a few more"? If as matt says its nothing to worry about then i wont. But i will get kevin to look at it when the tiles and bricks start.

What I mean was, when the other guys start working on other areas, there will be situations where the noggins might block the way of what they are trying to do (e.g. to install the roof, brick, pipe, plumbing,...etc). They will just remove those noggins...
