Code is the worst house you are allowed to build
I may be biased since I build houses, or maybe more enlightened because I do, but “code is the worst house you are allowed to build” is such a ridiculous statement. I just heard it on a building science show on PBS which was somewhat equally ridiculous, and have heard it countless times on auditor, home performance, green building forums presentations, ect almost as a selling point to these services.
Maybe “energy code is the worst possible….” I would be onboard, but geez.
Anybody else shake their head when they hear that or perhaps cheer in joy? I think a community such as this will be the latter, curious minds want to know what you all think about that statement.
