Hello, Austin folks! Here's some valuable information for those contemplating a paver patio project. A Reddit user inquired about permits for their patio, raising questions about whether it falls under the 'deck' category or needs to be over 200 sq ft. The community shared insights:
- Pavers aren't subject to the 200 sqft limit for decks.
- If your patio isn't physically attached to the house, a permit may not be required.
- Ground-level patios, while not decks, still count toward impervious coverage.
- Generally, if you're creating a paver patio without encroaching on the right of way, a permit might not be necessary.
