Swearing in of Witnesses – Mr. Ryan swore in Debi Walker and Ed Jenkins. 

 

Discussion

Mr. Jenkins advised the Commission that he determined the existing front porch was added in the 1940s.  He has not been able to determine if there was ever a front porch on this home.  He indicated that his renovations of the home have attempted to make the house compatible throughout as an example of Rural Carpenter Gothic.  He wants to remove the French doors as they are not compatible and install an oriel window to more accurately reflect the home’s period.  He indicated that he hopes to reuse the siding, but if he cannot he would replace the siding with Hardi-plank.

 

Mr. Burriss had several questions regarding various aspects of the design. 

 

  1. 1.                  Would a roof wall vent be placed on the rear of the home similar to the one located on the front of the home.  Mr. Jenkins indicated that it would not as he hoped to reroof the building in the future and install ridge vents.
  2. 2.                        Mr. Burriss asked if there were specific examples of the porch roof brackets and roof brackets.  He indicated that he would feel more comfortable with specific design details of these brackets.  Mr. Jenkins indicated that brackets would not be as detailed as the ones shown in the photos provided; they would have a more simple design.  Mr. Jenkins agreed to provide additional design details.
  3. 3.                  Mr. Burriss asked Mr. Jenkins why he selected the diamond pane window design.  Mr. Jenkins indicated that he had spent a lot of time researching exampleS of the Carpenter Gothic style and preferred the diamond design pane.  The diamond design panes were often an upgrade to dress-up the detail of the front of homes.  He was not interested in pursuing any gingerbread type details as that would be too busy.
  4. 4.                  Mr. Burriss asked about the supports and details of the Oriel window.  Mr. Jenkins indicated that he preferred the “roundish” hidden support design of the window and the diamond pane design.  However, if it became cost prohibitive to use the diamond pane design, he would return to the Commission for an alternative approval.
  5. 5.                  Mr. Burriss asked what type of curve the railing would have.  Mr. Jenkins indicated that there were two standard railing styles, a curved and a box railing.  He intended to install the curved railing as it would be more appropriate to the home.
  6. 6.                  Mr. Burriss asked if the windows would be functional.  Mr. Jenkins indicated the center window would be stationary with the side windows being casement.

 

The Planning Commission reviewed the Standards and Criteria pertaining to Application #2012-162:

 

a)                  Is stylistically compatible with other new, renovated and old structures in the Village District?  Mr. Burriss stated TRUE, the materials and use of detail are stylistically compatible and consistent with other structures in the district.
