I am looking to buy land in Colorado and hope to build a house out of cob or some sort of alternative home. Can anyone tell me which counties do not have building codes? Does anyone know of towns with self sustainable, eco friendly, off the grid groups of people?

Thanks for your help!

Crestone area would meet your criteria off-the-grid, eco-friendly folks with alternative building modalities. However, I can't address building codes.

Be sure to check the details on water collection if you go that route, too. I believe the laws recently changed (in favor of water collectors) in Colorado, but I don't recall the details. It's based on Colorado water law, not local zoning.

I heard that Delta does not have building codes too. Anyone else know of other counties too?
