At the end of this month when the builder has not completed the construction of your house, you can sue the builder for breach of contract.
Your damages (monetary compensation  for breach of contract) include costs, expenses, etc. you have incurred caused by the breach of contract.  Damages include the cost of completion if you hire a new builder.
