If you signed the contract with the stipulated price for that specific option and they are trying to make a change I would consult an attorney or threaten to do so and see if they back down. They probably will. Builders will hold you for what is called specific performance on your end so you need to do the same and ensure that they perform on their end. This is where an agent representing your best interests would be helpful. You don't pay a penny more when you buy a new build home and use an agent but we sure do help keep the transaction running smoothly and are always on your side representing your best interests... where the builder is essentially running the show now and just looking out for theirs. Consult an attorney. Good luck to you.
