Many people chose to finish their lower level to increase their living  space. Construction permits are required. 

A homeowner may perform the construction work on their own property where they reside without a contractor’s license. Additional permits are required for any mechanical, electrical or plumbing work to be completed. If the home is owner-occupied and a single family dwelling, the homeowner may be issued the mechanical, electrical and plumbing permits as well. If the home is duplex or multi-family dwelling, subcontractors will need to be hired for these trades.
