You would need permits if you are relocating any load barring walls. You can do your own electrical but you should have a electrician check it. If you are going to insulate it we do spray foam insulation.

1.) You would need a permit for electrical and plumbing

2.) If your limiting distance between the property line and the walls of your garage is less than 1.2 m, you nee a fire code drywall at that wall. The ceiling you can use regular drywall 1/2"
