I had some questions for my future build.

1.) What really make earthship and other off-grid building styles zoning nightmares, what makes them so Illegal and a hassle to build?. Is it the general construction?, the electrical?, the water and sewer systems?.

2.) Can these methods still be used in the construction of a home but still be within any zoning requirements or would I have to be built like a contemporary home to meet code?.

3.) Is the earthship style of building the cheapest and most cost effective way of building an off-grid home?. Or is there cheaper methods of building that I can use to incorporate into my future build to reduce the construction cost.

I'm really interested in doing a hybrid build incorporating earthship, tiny house and other building methods. So I'm trying to do my research on any and all building methods.

I've been reading a lot of stories and news articles on how people are being forcefully kicked off their land and/or even given ridiculously large fines for simply living free and off-the-grid. I'm still in my 20's and I want to some day live in my own off-grid home somewhere close to my family. But the problem that I could possibly face like many others I have been reading about is possibly being kicked off of land I have worked hard to pay for and my dreams of living off-the-grid and free is going to die. America was built on the foundation of liberty and freedom. But the United States Government, States, and County zoning enforcement are strong-arming it's citizens by force them to connect to local utility companies that are lining their pockets to help keep them in business.

Tired of it and wanting a future where I can truly be free I started a group on Facebook called "Liberty for off-grid living". a group where like minded individuals could come together and voice their love and opinions for off-grid living and spread the word that off-grid is the future. Life shouldn't be lived toiling all of it away working a back breaking job just to pay bills and die hating life, it should be living to enjoy life.
