I'm fresh out of college and am a full time electrical engineer. I'm looking to move into my own home within the next 6 months or so, and am eyeing the DLBA homes I see available. I'm also fairly handy with tools from school projects and some HFH work on the side. However, I've had no formal training in regards to being a tradesman (and hence know when not to do something stupid).
I'm curious as to what I would be able to do on my own - not from an ability standpoint or a safety standpoint - but from a legal standpoint. From what I've gathered so far, it sounds like I can theoretically do all work on my own, so long as all building codes are met and all permits are pulled properly. But I'm having a very hard time finding exactly which tasks has restrictions on who can perform the work.
Would anyone be able to outline which tasks I need to hire a contractor/sub to complete from a legal standpoint, or have any resources that can better explain this part to me?
