You need to go to your local municipality and talk to their planning dept. MOST municipalities require you to get a building permit, submit blue prints, have them OK the plans and have the work inspected at intervals throughout the process to ensure that quality work is being done and that everything is being done to code standards. Many will require you to use licensed contractors. You won't know what your municipality requires until you talk to them, so that is your first step and most important step. If you are using a contractor, they may handle that step for you (but be sure that they are not skipping that step because if they are you could be in serious problems later on)
