Foundation Question

I have a question for you foundation experts out there. How long can a foundation sit after it's completed before it needs to be framed. Is there some kind of time limit or can the foundation stay freestanding for any amount of time . Thanks for your response in advance

So as long as it's free standing with no back fill it's no problem to sit 4 months . Does weather effect it at all . Thanks
Ok thanks for the advice guys. I was looking to try paying for some of the construction costs and there would be a few months downtime between foundation and framing . Thanks again
Thanks jls construction , ya that's a good idea. Thanks
Thanks warren , I appreciate your advice
Hey Chris , I was planning on starting in the spring. I was planning on letting it sit about 4 months . But I liked the idea someone said about getting the decking done as well.but you are right about the area here. Thanks Chris
Thanks guys, this was some educational info
