Even where there are half-decent energy efficiency building standards, they're rarely effectively enforced. I've heard tales of new build houses in the UK where the loft insulation was technically there - but still rolled up and in it's original packaging.
Ah, that subtle difference between the letter of the law and the spirit!

but i'm sitting down to entirely home grown lunch having spent the morning in the garden working in shorts and T. and now i have 4 hours of lessons teaching some delightful kids. So i guess it ain't all bad.
