My wife and I are considering the O-B route in MA. I started reading MA and local town websites to get background info and found this: "Construction of all one and two family dwellings and all buildings containing less than 35,000 cubic feet of enclosed space must be under the supervision of a person licensed by the State Board of Building Regulations and Standards as Licensed Construction Supervisor." http://www.mass.gov/bbrs/cslprogram.htm If I'm reading this correctly, one must hire a site manager/construction supervisor in MA (typically a GC in pre-built cases). Can anyone confirm or deny? -CMA

Hi Chris, nice to finally see someone from MA here, as an owner-builder you are allowed to build a home every two years. You do not need a builders license to do so, though most banks require one, If you were in the construction business you would be required to have a license. Everything over 35K sq ft will require an architects PE stamp. I'm actually owner-building in North Attleboro, but I do have my builders license.

Tom,

Can you recommend insurance agents for Builder's Risk, Course of Construction, and/or umbrella policies for someone acting as their own GC? I'm just starting the process in MA.
