Yep, you can't hire and pay a non-licensed electrician, but an O-B can wire their house without being licensed.

I like the house that you've chosen, but if that area is anything like mine, the chances are slim to none that you get an allowance on a city ordinance. On the other hand, choice of siding isn't a city ordinance here; it is usually included in the covenants/restrictions placed on a particular development. This is a choice of the developer and is much easier to work with. I have a hard time understanding why there would be a city ordinance regarding exterior finish. Ordinances usually have more to with building codes and zoning. For most homes, masonry isn't any more structurally sound than stucco, because both are generally veneer. Of course, I think places like Park City here in Utah have exterior finish restrictions, at least on commercial properties.  If you're proposed neighborhood is anything like that, then you are out of luck.

Anyway, find out if it really is the city that is imposing the restrictions, rather than just a developer. If it is the city, I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you. With some slight modification, the home you're considering would look great in stone. I don't think that brick would do it justice.
