    I live in suburban Houston.  We have basically no building codes whatsoever.  We put an addition on our house a few years ago.  The contractor didn't need to pull any permits for any of it.  Luckily for us, we custom built our house, so we watched it getting built day by and and know exactly what's in it; plus we were able to add in such niceties as hurricane clips on the roof, energy efficient insulation, etc.

    I would be afraid to buy a house here if I didn't know how it was built.  I hope I never find this out, but I have a feeling if we get a good hurricane blast, my house might be the only one on the block with a roof left on it.
