If you own your residence, you can apply for specific permits to perform work in your home or you can also obtain other property use permits. While as a homeowner you can perform many types of non-structural work, for your safety you must use licensed trade contractors for new electrical, plumbing and/or HVAC project components. A homeowner can only apply for a plumbing permit for an existing residence provided that it is their homestead and they will personally be doing the work. (Refer to Plumbing Homeowner Affidavit (PDF)). For a list of projects you can obtain permits for yourself, review the homeowner section below.
