Deck plan approval process

Building a deck is a popular DIY project. But if you live in Farragut, your plans must be submitted to the town for approval to ensure that your deck is safe.

Codes Officer Chris Brown knows a thing or two about decks, and he’s put together a video with highlights from the American Wood Council’s easy-to-read construction guide for decks. Watch the video here to learn more and then pick up your free copy at the Community Development office at Town Hall. 

If you’re considering building a new deck, or any other home improvement project in Farragut, review your plans with us before construction to make sure your project is in compliance. It will save you time and money! Call 865-966-7057 and ask for the Codes Department.
