That is very do able as in these parts anyways. There is nothing about requiring a permit that restricts who actually does the work. The thing about having the permit is it is really all about the final inspection (that comes with the permit process) of the work. So if your a handy guy who knows what your doing you can take out a permit & do the work yourself and the only extra cost to you is the cost of the permit itself.

I still have a problem with that in that some "inspectors" are less competent than the individual who does the actual work.

Very true but is that not the case with just about every profession? Sadly we don't live in a world where everyone is great at their jobs.

That is really the exact problem. Often you must pick the inspector's contractor or risk failing inspection repeatedly, or suffering delays when he fails to show up at appointed times.
I've seen permits denied, and permits issued with no follow-up inspection, based entirely on the the identity of the applicant or his contractor.

I guess it must all depends on where you live Floyd as to what one experiences in that regard. As apparently we have had very different experiences.
