Rob I really know what point you are trying to make---is it a "it can't be done" theme? (I have a few interesting stories on that topic, when I get time). Again, Building, Electrical, and Plumbing Codes are pretty uniform across Canada and the USA. Yes, there are variations in bylaws and power and utility company regulations ; but, that has little to do with developing the "Volkswagen House". How people deal with the inconsistancies of beaurocrats is another topic all together---I am sure most folks can find out if you can bury the telephone cable with the electrical service or not etc. etc.---all my graduates do so---No big deal---but again that nothing to do with designing the "Volkswagen House". The Asphalt Shingles (if used, although I doubt it, petroleum based and all that) will be installed exactly like the Asphalt Manufacturers Assoc. want them installed---no problems.
