Mr. Linenschmidt restated the staff report with considerations for the Commission of the proposed elevations based upon the conformance with the HDC stipulations for the Township. 

 

Mr. Linenschmidt referred to the staff report to specify the two proposed elevations and reminded the Board the other elevations included in the staff report were approved previously.

Mr. Jim Weibling of Gromax Development came forward and explained that the first elevation was specifically designed for Mr. Randy Ferguson who was also present at the meeting.

 

A discussion was held regarding the proposed elevation designs.  Ms. Sesher questioned the rounded windows on the second proposed elevation.

 

Mr. Weibling addressed Ms. Sesher’s question stating square windows are a little cheaper but rounded windows provide a custom feel.  He stated that there are many older homes that had the rounded window design when they were hand crafted.  Mr. Weibling further explained that the floor plan that Mr. Ferguson wanted was very difficult to match with an existing elevation so they tried to create something that would compliment the design of the interior and be an attractive addition.
