New Construction (Residential / Commercial)

The City of Wimberley requires a building permit for new construction and for most phases of reconstruction or remodeling.

View Chapter 4 Building Regulations, which includes a list of adopted building-related codes.

State law requires compliance with the energy codes whenever there is a change to the conditioned area. This is accomplished by use of the REScheck for residential projects and COMCheck for commercial projects.

All commercial projects and residential projects where construction takes place on slopes over 15%, require a site plan review prior to the issuance of a City of Wimberley building permit.
