    I think you just need a permit,
    they can not expect a home owner to have license to build a home.

    You need a Green Card AND a contractor’s liscense. Why, how long have you been here?

    in california, if you build your own house, you don’t, so i don’t think you need to, the easiest way is asking your respective city hall.

    Yes, you need a Dwelling Contractor Financial Responsibility Certification, and maybe more depending on your county. The Dept of Commerce has more details. Hope these links work.

    Just be aware that the current market is extremely soft. I know of small builders in SE WI that have been waiting for spec homes to sell for over 9 months; in the past they would have been sold in less than a month. Be prepared to lose a bucket load of money, and be aware of the lien laws. If you cannot honor your trade contractor’s invoices, according to WI law, they (we) have the legal right to put a lien on the house.

    It might look like a fantastic opportunity, but it’s an awful time to get your feet wet.
