What work can I do myself as a homeowner/property owner?
As a homeowner/property owner, working on your residence (meaning you own AND live in the house), you may do any work yourself with the proper permits in place. If the work is being done on someone else's residence or by someone else on your residence, then a licensed contractor or tradesman must obtain the permit. Please keep in mind the applicant to whom the permit is issued is legally responsible for compliance of the work with the code.
