Yes, you can pull an interior remodel permit and you also have the option to act as your own general contractor for your own home by completing the work yourself as an “owner-builder.” If a property owner is acting as the general contractor (owner-builder), they must sign the “Owner Builder Disclosure Affidavit” and must be able to complete all the work themselves, or hire licensed contractors i.e. (electrical, plumbing, HVAC, roof). This completed form must be included with any permit application for which the owner wishes to be an owner-builder.
Be sure to read the disclosure statement carefully before considering being an owner-builder. If you have a contractor to help you, they must be a Florida-licensed contractor and must be added to the permit as a subcontractor.
