Certificate of Appropriateness
Randy and Terri Applegate,
Daryl Poprave read the staff report outlining the applicant’s request, local criteria for review, and Dept. of Interior Standards for Rehabilitation.
Randy Applegate of 109 Ripley stated that the new shingles are manufactured by Certainteed, the Horizon model and are an architectural styled shingle. These shingles will be installed on both the existing home, new addition and garage. The shingle color will be Homestead Slate.
Commissioner Gross asked if the home originally had a slate roof. The applicants stated that the only known photo of the original house is from an obscured view and thus the roofing is not visible but houses of this time period (1860’s) often had slate roofs. Commissioner Gross asked if there was any original shingles left on the house. The applicants stated that there were none. The applicants stated that the new roof will be slate in color. Their original application stated that they were going to match the existing roof but now they are going to change colors because they feel it look more like a historic home.
Commissioner MacKellar asked if the applicants would be adding gutters. The applicants stated that they were not.
asked if they were using the same entry door as originally proposed on
The applicants stated in their original petition back in June, they wanted to expand the garage from its existing footprint. They have now decided that this will be cost prohibitive so they will be retaining the garages original footprint. (A zoning variance was granted for this garage expansion) The applicants are proposing a garage roof change from the originally proposed hip style to a gable styled roof.
The Commission again stated that the lack of proposed gutters could cause future ice/water problems. The applicants stated that if this proved to be true they may again come back to the HDC to get gutters approved but at this point in time no gutters would be added to the house and or garage.
moved to approve the application for
1. That they replace the current 3 to 1 shingles with an architecturally styled shingle, homestead slate in color on both the house and garage.
2. That the garage retains its original footprint and size. That the present placement of entry doors and garage doors be retained.
3. That the profile of the garage roof be changed to a gable style matching the existing roofline of the home.
4. That no eaves troughs, gutters or downspouts be added to the property.
5. The criteria for review as listed in the staff report shall apply.
