Can I Build or Erect an Alternative Rural Home in Northern Arizona?

Arizona is perfect because there are few restrictions on rural land depending on the area you choose. The cost of an alternative could save you a lot of money over a site built home and be as comfortable.

People in Arizona have used yurts, teepees, strawbale building, tents on platforms, earthen homes, and re-furbished manufactured homes to live in.  Many of these alternative ideas are ideal for a part or full time home.  Pole-mounted solar panels can be used with any of these homes to provide electricity. 

Other posts in this series are about the design and feasibility of modern teepees, yurts, tents, and straw-bale building. Soon I will also write on another trend happening in our area where so may people have had to give up their manufactured homes.
