late delivery of home

We contracted to purchase a home from a builder. In the contract it states the home would be finished in 155 days from the date of signing contract. It looks now like it will be finished much later. The builder says we have no recourse and it will be delayed, but cannot give us a completion date now. It is going to cost us a lot of additional money to rent another place to live. Also, our furniture is in storage, so another expense due the late delivery. We asked the builder many times, if delivery would be on schedule and he always said it would be sooner. On the contract it states 155 days from date of contract signing and nothing else after that sentence. Do we have any recourse at all? What could happen if we asked for a release from the contract? Can we be sued?
