Legislature Legalizes Indigenous Hawaiian Architecture Statewide

In 2006 and 2007 the State Legislature passed measures that allow residential use of Indigenous Hawaiian Architecture Structures. See: http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/session2007/bills/SB1917_cd1_.htm

I have attached Maui County’s existing Indigenous Architecture building code (click here). At this point, the housing officials from all other counties are required to adopt similar building codes.

FYI, the housing officials from each county are:
