There may be people here from Maine but I don't know for certain, otherwise ask your local inspector or building department.

you don't have to be in a city/county to call their offices.

In most areas the HOMEOWNER can do things themselves...
but they usually also need permits and to have their work inspected.
On the whole... this is a GoodThing.
