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.

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.
