Kitchen extension

Could you please advise,the builder has put up the extension wall 7 days ago and told us he cannot put the roof trusses on until the brick work is dry and this is holding the work up ?.

That is correct, but they should have bedded a wall plate to take trusses on internal wall. About a day after the wall goes up you should be able to put roof on and get the room watertight.

The brickwork should be dry the following day, unless there are exceptional circumstances. I would expect to start on the roof the next day so I find a seven day delay very strange.
