Hello my name is Lisa I'm 20 and I live in Texas. My husband and I are looking to live off the grid and live simply. We are looking for the best places to live and buy land. We are looking to buy 5 acre to 20 acre anywhere in the US. We have also looked into raising chickens, nile tilapia, californian rabbits,bees, kinder goats, european night worms and our own crops. I am very confused in where to start with all of this planing to transfer from a complex fast pace life to a simple self sufficent life. I was raised with all these luxuries in life and it has gotten me no where. I want my kids to grow in an envionment where they can grow to respect nature and what it means to work for what you have. Can someone please help us out with figuring out zoning law on building your own home, what kind of heat and/or ac is legal to use in a home, how solar power works, how to pump water to a shower, and two sinks, how to collect grey water and so on.
As for the rest there are plenty of posts here with info or online. Regulations will vary depending on the area and it's best to research yourself and ask questions. I managed to avoid a regulated septic this way.
