Can I build my own house?

Yes. You are allowed to build your own house given that all federal, state, and local building codes and requirements are followed and routine inspections are conducted. A set of construction documents is required once you apply for the building permit. Subcontractors are preferred for specialty work such as concrete, electrical, plumbing, etc.
