Bob: wouldn't worry about the rain on your rough framing too much.Might want to keep an eye on any plywood underlayment that has standing water on it.You can drill holes in it to let water out.Actually good time to check if builder has your deck level(water going to one section of the house more than the rest?)Partical board (OSB)tends to swell(alot)when it gets wet for long periods or has standing water.Once you are under roof and shingled(something that should be top priority for the builder)the house should dry out long before it's time to drywall.
From my experience in new const.Heat does more damage to lumber than rain or snow.I've seen studs turn into 8' S'es or bow 1" or more.Luck on you new house!
