State law requires residential construction to be done by licensed, residential builders and specialty contractors. You have applied or a permit under an exemption to the law. The exemption allows you, as the owner of your property, to act as your own builder even though you do not have a license. You must supervise the construction yourself. You may build or improve any one-family or two-family residence. The building must be for your own use and occupancy. It may not be built for sale or rent. If you sell or rent a building that you have built yourself within two years after the construction is completed, the law will presume that you built it for sale or rent, which is a violation of this exemption. You may not hire an unlicensed person as your residential builder or specialty contractor. It is your responsibility to make sure that persons employed by you have licenses required by State Law and by county or municipal licensing
