Taking over 4 minutes for shower water to get hot in brand new home

We have a brand new home and the wait time for the hot water to reach the tap seems way too long. The kitchen sink is 30’ from hot water tank, takes 1 1/2 minutes to get hot. The master shower is 45’ from hot water tank and takes close to 4 minutes to get hot. Is this normal? Home is brand new and total living square feet is 2,356.
