Can I act as my own contractor?
Owner-builder is basically a situation in which the homeowner becomes the general contractor. As an owner-builder, you assume all responsibility for the overall job, which may include such things as state and federal taxes, workers compensation and other legal liabilities. Unless you are experienced in construction, it may be best to leave these matters to a contractor.
