I suggest you look for a short term rental and keep an eye on the building process. Check back (or have your agent) check back and get an update of the process in a regular basis.

I have a realtor but she had not been responsive. She had been asking us to continue with The builder and took 2 days before returning our call when we are for help on the discussion for our lease.
We end up having to do the discussion with the leasing agent and the leasing agent for the house we are staying is not willing to do a short term rental and we need to be moving out for sure. :(
Will try to ask again if she can help to get a firmer date..
Am praying hard this will not impact my sons schooling as from the sound of it we would need to move to a place where it's out off the schooling distrct :(
I also suggest that if you didn't have a Realtor representing your interest in this purchase, you want to check with a Lawyer.
Has this builder sold other homes in the community that you know buyers moved in already? Another way will be to escalate your legit concerns to the builder area Manger or Regional Manager.
Project and plan to extend your stay for 4 more months, if you get positive answers in writing from the builders at this point and have a lawyer review it.
You can occasionally find short term house rentals in the Austin area. Storage and extended stay may also be an option.
If you are renting, you can ask your landlord to extend. If you have sold your home, you can ask the buyers if you can lease back for awhile.

Did you use a Realtor to help you purchase this new home? Your Realtor should be able to talk to the sales counselor about the timeline and also find you some temporary housing while your house is being built if it does go past the August deadline. Are you selling your existing home or are you currently in a rental? Maybe there is opportunity there to stay put and lease back your current housing for an extra month or two.
The sales counselor ought to be able to give you some sort of updated timeline, but unfortunately in new construction a lot of factors can play into upsetting a closing date, and labor shortage is one, as well as weather, supplies,city inspectors, or permits.
If you did not use a Realtor to purchase this home, you might also talk to your mortgage lender, who is in contact with the sales counseor, and maybe they can get an answer for you.
If you have any other questions, I am happy to help.
