I am also a newb in New York. I have my land and really need to get a house built. My issue is I can't decide what technique/s to use. Do you know anything about building codes? Are they the same all over the state? I don't have an abundance of trees on my land so was thinking more toward using earth. Folks had been suggesting yurts to me, too, but, I'm with Joe. It gets really cold up here! Anyone know any natural builders in Upstate New York?
