    Default New construction, always new appliances?

    Is it stated in the code anywhere that everything that goes into a new house must be new. For instance, could a builder use a furnace from a 10 year old house or faucets and fixtures from an older house?

    I can also see the possibility if someone wanted to use older (used) stuff for certain architectural reasons... Like faucets, fixtures or finish stuff.

    Default Re: New construction, always new appliances?

    From the 2006 IRC. (underlining is mine)

    - R104.9 Approved materials and equipment. Materials, equipment and devices approved by the building official shall be constructed and installed in accordance with such approval.
    - - R104.9.1 Used materials and equipment.Used materials, equipment and devices shall not be reused unless approved by the building official.
