    Land Use Regulations on your own property.

    Suppose you want to buy or build a home in a rural area. How important is it to you to get property that is free of land use or building regulations?

    In the US, there is no place I know of free of land use or building regulations, nor should there be. Like it or not, how you use your land can and often does impact on others.

    Alaska is what you're looking for. They have plenty of land that has no taxes, plenty of resources and absolutely no building codes or regs.

    The hard one is actually owning your property. The mineral and water rights must be deeded. You can get more of that in Alaska as well.

    I lie some regulations.I do not think you should be able to freely build a toxic waste dump, prison, bum shelter, garbage dump and other things most normal people would have a problem with.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I like some regulations, building regulations sometimes are very important in built up areas to not infringe on the rights of your neighbors or the neighbors not infringing on your own rights.

    Not very important if all you want is a normal home. What few regulations do apply, you can easily get a permit for. If you want to do anything more than have a house, there will be other regulations to take into consideration depending on what exactly you want to do.

    A quick note about the house: Your homeowner's insurance will likely want you to have a habitability certificate. To get that, you have to pass a few building inspections. Those inspections are based on building code, but some areas do not have any building code at all. Best bet, if you find yourself in this situation, is to pick the nearest city to get your contractor from and have them build according to city code. This way a city inspector can come out and give you a habitability certificate, which you can then take to get insurance.

    It's the difference between living where there are far fewer folks than those others who seem to enjoy living huddled together. The huddled masses need the regulation.

    That is not true. Alaska has, like all other states, rather significant regulations involving the use of land, development on land, building codes and so on. For example: https://law.resource.org/pub/us/code...k_building.pdf

    Those are city codes, not Alaskan State codes. Only a small portion of Alaska is city, hugely rural/wilderness. Often off the grid living. There are many places, with large stretches of land where there are no building regs, no taxes, and no enforcement to begin with.

    I'd like to see the building regs for the Kilter homestead, we all just watched him install a wood heater up to his second story.

    I'm pretty sure that Galt's Gulch was such a place. Maybe you should try to move there?
