Homeowners can apply for electrical, plumbing, and building permits to perform work on their own homes. The homeowner must have a Homestead Exemption through the Harris County Appraisal District. The home must be the homeowners primary residence and the work can ONLY be performed by the homeowner. If the homeowner is having a contractor perform the work, the contractor is responsible for pulling the permit themselves.
