    Best thing is to know the law. I had a neighbor really hated my lifted Suburban. Called code. Code said you could not have a truck in your drive that didn't fit in your garage.
    Told him I did not own a truck. He about lost his mind. So I went inside, got the title and clearly said "SW". For station wagon. So I lifted it higher, but on bigger tires, and left it muddy and parked it right out by the front so the neighbor could see it all day every day.

    That's entirely false. What you posted were the international codes that some Alaska cities and towns have adopted. Beyond city limits they do not apply. There is a whole of land available beyond city/town borders. There are no state zoning/building codes. Have you ever even been there?

    This consideration played a part in our decision to buy where we did. On most of the Gulf Islands in BC they deal with a municipal-level entity called the Islands Trust but here, Texada Island, there's no such thing. I have to have an electrical inspection done on the house I'm building- and that suits me- and if I put in a septic field it needs to be inspected and meet standards but that's it as far as regulation is concerned. I like it. So do my neighbours.

    Contrary to believe here, I am hardly ever mad. Or even mildly upset.

    When I bought mine which is in the country, being free of any type of association and as you put it land use or building regulations was pretty much at the top of my list. I figure it is my property and I should do what ever what I want on it. If I can't, there is no sense in me owning it. This is also one of the reasons why I live in the country instead of town. I will not be impeded in doing what I want.

    I wanted to build a patio, porch combination on the house I owned in town. When I was told I had to get permits and licences and have it inspected after I built it. I said seeya. I sold it and moved.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    The zoning nazis who declare that "property values" are a constitutional right, for which they can tell you the color to paint your house and what plants you must have and may not have in your yard.

    Really, there should be a universal standard how people dress too to maintain the quality of the appearance of the community.
    I have no idea what you are ranting about but nobody said anything about killing originality nor creativity. Perhaps the barn is calling and wants its strawman back.

    Thats a double edged sword. On one hand one wants to be able to do whatever they want on their own property. On the other hand some people do some pretty stupid stuff on their own property that would endanger other properties and lives..

    I dont know if you have been to Mexico, but they give a good example why building codes are needed in modern society.

    Understand that in the places where there are building codes and you choose not to follow them (allowed in certain places, used to be called class K housing in Nevada County) you will never be able to get insurance. Generally insurance is required for a home loan. So it will be extremely hard to sell.
