Off grid. Cameras?

 Hello.  I'm trying to find out which cameras would be acceptable areas for off grid building?  Our preference is central Portugal closer to the sea.  But it seem to have to move where it is acceptable.  We are looking at light steel frame which the company seem to be building up north.

Ask the local camara when you find a place, go before you buy to see what is possible. We're having an off grid house built (Arganil camara) and as long as it is up to current building regs it's not a problem, in fact it's very common as so many properties are remote. You need a licenced builder or engineer to sign off on any new build tho, in order to get a habitation licence. Good luck.

@cojabound thank you.   Yes, I would think  Central Portugal would definitely allow it because it is so remote and rural.  I'm wondering if there are any cameras who would allow off grid closer to sea.
