If you choose to build a home with a Licensed Contractor, you would be free to sell your home immediately, if need be. If you choose to build a home as a Home Owner Builder, you must live in the home for at least one year before you would be able to sell it.
First you must find and purchase land to build on. Next, find a Hawaii-based architect and engineer. Design your plans and submit them to the county when finished. If the land where you’re building is located in an HOA, then you will have the added step to gain HOA approval of your plans. This can take longer than the county’s approval. After the county and HOA approves and grants you a building permit, you may begin the building process. Hiring a builder or hiring out each step is next. In Hawaii, you must hire a Hawaii Licensed Electrician and Plumber for your house build.
