Are these things to be concerned over at this stage of construction

My wife and I are first time homebuyers under contract with a large homebuilder.
As it is our first home and largest investment, we have been “sneaking” into our build site on Sundays (when there are no contractors on site) to see the progress first hand. The construction manager has been sending over updates regularly with exterior shots and information on the stage they are in, but we like being about to see things first up close. So far they have completed the framing. When we stopped in today there were a few things that we, as inexperienced new homeowners, feel may be of concern:

ā€‹

Garage grading – front of garage is about 2-3inches lower than entrance. Shouldn’t the garage be flat? Gaps between wood framing – can see light peaking through Holes in walls – golf sized. Almost as if they were received damages and still installed Inaccurate nailing – nails going into framing beam only go through on piece of wood and don’t connect with other Slanted framing

My guess is that framing doesn’t need to be perfect for the house to be considered sound. My wife pays attention to each and every detail and expects houses to be built the same way. So, she is concerned with the possibility of issues that might arise if these details are overlooked. Again, we have no experience in construction whatsoever, so please don’t kill us in the comments. We are trying to be as prudent as possible with this investment.
Our question to all of the experienced people in this community is, does anything look off the you in the pictures linked that would have you question the quality of the build or point to any issues with insulation in the future?
