How about living in a yurt? A modern version of this ancient structure (fragments found have been dated at 5000 BC) could be used as a home on your piece of rural land in Northern Arizona.
Yurts use compression and tension to form a freestanding, clear open structure. At the top of the yurt, the hub or compression ring is under pressure from the rafters, which radiate out from it.

The rafters span out and down from the ring at a thirty-degree angle, and hook onto the main cable. The main cable is a continuous loop, preset to the exact circumference of the yurt. It is supported by the lattice wall and is enclosed by the fabric.
By combining the durable yurt concept with a few modern updates, you have a stalwart, light-weight shelter that is easy to install and transport. Yurts would definately work as alternative homes for rural Northern Arizona Land
