We're both late 20s and looking for a place to put down roots and raise a family, with healthy organic food aplenty and as much sustainability as technology and sharp wit can get us.

I'd like to find a place without building code requirements so we can build what we wish. (we've determined this will save us about 2million or more over our lifetimes, by doing it ourselves with my building talent rather than going through licensed professionals to do a job on a home that meets the code but fails to be nearly as sustainable as what we can build without code requirements (Think CEB technology, 1000 year homes, etc)

I'm just not interested in dealing with governments about my home, I'm fully convinced I can do it better, safer, faster, cheaper, and more durable without them.

Beyond that, we seek a community which will be a healthy place to raise kids, with a good community and an emphasis on personal responsibility.

Any advice, thoughts, potentials for invitations (We're super polite and respectful and intelligent and kind, we stand up for neighbors and ourselves but believe firmly in the non aggression principle and peaceful parenting)

Especially advice on where to build that I could still earn a living nearby while having no building code and the ability to 'build free' (live free, as much as one can? Offgrid)
 
The government thinks you are too stupid to make your own lightbulb choices. But this tiny ad thinks you are smart:
