The Commission regrets that the historic front door was removed, the masonry opening was narrowed and shortened, and new brick work toothed in to accommodate a double-hung window, and that a single large areaway was established, all work in direct contradiction to previous recommendations, see OG 12-044 and OG 12-079.  Recent alterations for new opening in wall and for areaway were not approved.  No objection to issuance of permit to widen and lengthen masonry opening to match original condition and for previously approved installation of a triple-hung single-glazed wood window with applied 7/8” wide wood muntins and for alterations to areaway to establish two window wells at front of house per supplemental drawings received 16 September 2014.  Note:  Any subsequent modifications to the approved design, including those made during DCRA technical review, must be re-submitted to the Commission for approval prior to issuance of permit.
