Nope, no contractor’s license is needed. I am pretty picky about what I take on to build, and keeping away from residential and commercial property remodeling is pretty high on my “don’ts” list. I had a contractor’s residential license one time in Wichita when I used to do remodeling in between furniture jobs. In those days, I even had to have permits pulled to put up a privacy fence, and so now I try to say no to remodeling. Additionally, I live in sort of a “throw-back” style county, as there are no inspections, no permits, no anything needed in my county to build or remodel. There are some local city rules, but not in the county, so the issue doesn’t come up around here. Also, I try to only do jobs that I can build in my shop, so that I don’t have to haul tools around, or work at a job site. That work does seem to pay better, and has a better market for work, but it isn’t what I enjoy doing the most.
