Generally speaking, is roundwood framing acceptable to most rural zoning committees? We can save thousands by utilizing round logs to frame our home, but I am unable to find anything in the county ordinance documentation regarding their use. Am I looking in the wrong place?

In my area I couldn't find anything on it either.  The only way I got anywhere was a call to the code inspection officer via the town office.  In our area, there was no code concerning construction types per se - but we did have to get a stamped design by an architect.  If the architect was willing to say it was safe - they went along with it.
