  1. We want to build a patio like this in the back yard. It would be a few feet from the house. Do we need a permit? I'd dig down 8 inches, fill 4 inches of gravel, top with leveling sands to slope away from house, and then fill in pavers and small rock. We're in Houston city limits, and we are not in a 100 or 500 year floodplain.
  2. I'm looking for someone to screen in my back patio. It has a concrete floor and composition roof supported by 4x4 steel posts but there are challenges. Probably need to pour a few more sq ft of concrete, plus there is a small window in the way. Anyway, I've had two contractors over recently who both do only aluminum framed screening and gotten widely varying assessments (and thus estimates). The house is an old 1920s bungalow and I'd greatly prefer a wood framed screening with a knee wall that matches the wood siding. So, I'm looking for a carpenter who understands both this architectural necessity and how to properly build screen walls so they don't rot right away. Any suggestions?
