What work can I do myself as a property/home owner?

If you own the property and it is your main place of residence, then you can do any building, plumbing, electrical or mechanical work yourself. You are still required to pull permits as that work will have to be inspected and the work must be completed by you. If you hire someone else to perform that work they will need to pull the permit. You are responsible as the permit holder for any work being done.
