Modifications to windows
No objection to the issuance of a permit for modifications to doors and windows, including the installation of security bars at three windows, the masonry infill of one existing window opening, and modifications to the the existing front entry door, as shown in materials received and dated 8 November 2013, provided that all security bars match, preferably by making the new bars match the existing bars, and pending the receipt of revised drawings. Recommend that the frame of the existing front entry door be modified to prevent a flush condition between the reversed door and the face of the existing frame. Refer to DC Historic Preservation Office. Note: Any subsequent modifications to the approved design, including those made during DCRA technical review, must be resubmitted to the Commission for approval.
