Hello all. I am looking to buy some land to buy and self build on. I am trying to find towns/areas that meet two specific criteria:
1.) Land owners can self build without having to deal with inspections to build their own primary home. I am fine with plumbing, electrical, and septic inspections, but I would like to be able to "self inspect" the rest, and not have to jump through tons of hoops to get the occupancy certificate.
2.) The area/town has to have access to decent internet. I work from home so I need to be able to use Teams without issues.
Feel free to PM me if you do not want to advertise any "hidden gems".
Seeing as how you aren't looking to live inside city limits. As a owner-builder, as long as you have 2x4 studs every 16inchs and a bit of insulation. They really dont care.
Now if you start telling them that you want to have a earthen roof and cob wall, and a composting tiolet and that you to run a DC only electrical system then you are just drawing attention to yourself and asking to be investegated alot more.
And yes as other have said, if you get somewhere with a house already you can probably renovate it and have it exactly the way how you want it. If you buy raw land, just look out for impact fee. I have seen it cost $20,000
Iterations are fine, we don't have to be perfect
