Hello,
I live in Cochise county, and the limit is 4 acres, not 5. The zoning to look for is RU-4. Then, apply for a building permit using the "opt out of inspection" option. It costs about $160, and can include a 3-year permit to live in an RV on the property while building. Just for the record, I moved here because of this.

Arkansas and Kansas has homestead land for sale with no restrictions. I'm looking too. I also want to build an earthbag home. Good luck.

Old thread and OP's inquiry is (along with most replies) about the US but for Europe (in case others visitors of this thread, like me, are interested in the topic) I read this article today and it sounds like Spain could be a viable option: https://www.permaculturenews.org/2014/07/17/land-freedom-low-impact-building-spain/
 
Or we might never have existed at all. Freaky. So we should cherish everything. Even this tiny ad:
