BC owner-builder residential building requirements

I'm planning on building a straw bale house-- very environmentally sound-- but am told that no contractor will touch it b/c it's not in BC code, so I have to go the owner-builder route. However, with the new exam requirements, what I hear are very difficult, often irrelevant questions, no study guide, no sample test, no results released, and no score released, this seems impossible. In addition, the need for this additional hoop for owner-builders seems ludicrous, as I understand that there are more complaints against contractors than against owner-builders. It looks to me like the construction industry paid off the Liberals to pass this law; can the Greens please consider trying to get it repealed? And consider adopting the IRC straw bale building code into the BCBC? Thanks.
