My father-in-law is planning on building a house himself using wood off his own concession, mostly pine and spruce. He would do most of framing but hire subcontractors for foundation, plumbing, hydro, etc. Legally can he do this? doesnt the wood need to be stamped/certified? What issues would he have doing this? Would the banks even mortgage him for the rest of his materials/subcontractor work?
