Thanks for the link Darren, my county does have the exemption he mentions for >200 sf on building permits. I've considered a small super insulated structure as a cellar/quiet place.
Allowing your house to move slightly ought to be a benefit in earthquakes. Consider that foresight! I would imagine concrete structures require a lot of reinforcement combined with a floating/flexible foundation. Thanks for raising that point.
