A land owner and a contractor entered into a contract to build a house that is to be finished by July 1st. Halfway through the project the owner decides she is going on summer vacation and verbally tells the contractor that he can finish by September 1st. On June 20th the owner misses her flight and decides not to go on vacation and demands that the house be built by their contract deadline of July 1st.
