What can't I do?


Hello
So I am going to build my own house. Legally what can't I do?
I would like to do everything after the foundation. Can I do the electrical and just have it inspected, same for the plumbing?

I live in Prince Edward Island and thank you for your responses.

Check with your local permit department if the Canadian folks don't have an answer---

In the U.S. some places you can do every thing--others you need a plumber--some the electrician.

Yup, depends are where you are and local rules. Here is SoCal I can pull a permit as an owner-builder and pretty much do it all.

Same here---but next town over you can't touch the plumbing.--Go figure.
