Rule changes since then mean that you cannot build your own house. Hiring a registered builder would have been an extra 100,000+ even 8 years ago.
You still can build your own house in BC: https://www.bchousing.org/licensing-con ... er-builder

The changes in regulations and myriad taxes have contributed to making it far more expensive to build a home. Government involvement has not led to increased affordability.
The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts.
