It's just not made sense to me why the

One reason is local zoning. In DC going the route of straw-bale and sweat equity would have taken many many years. Another is that people are taking a financial risk to build these communities and "safe" building processes at least make the bank feel a bit more secure.

That said, more experimentation I'm sure is welcome all around.
