We bought a newly built house 9 months ago. The house has approx 1800 sq ft footage all on the main floor. The water heater is in the basement on one far side of the house. The water pipes (plastic) are coiled out to the middle of the ceiling of the basement, then radiate out to both sides of the house. ( Baths are on opposite sides.) The problem is, you may have to wait at least 30-45 seconds to get any warm- hot water. This is a long wait when you just want to wash your hands. What are my options as a solution to this annoying problem?

You have a design problem that was overlooked when they built the house. Other than relocating the water heater to a more central location, they do sell undercounter instantaneous water heaters for this purpose. Check any of the hardware discount centers (Depot, B. Square) and you should find one to suit your needs.
