The applicant is proposing a new roof connection between the primary structure and the detached garage as part of a reconstruction effort on the property. Both structures are being repaired and rebuilt following a fire on the property. The applicant is proposing the same materials to match the existing parts of the structure that remain undamaged. The exterior walls are being reconcstructed in their original location, and no changes are planned for the roof pitch or materials other than the new connection between the house and garage. The only change to the exterior of the building is a new roof spanning the space between the detached garage and primary structure, connecting the two buildings at the roof only. The space between the structures will remain as it was before the fire, they will just have a roof overhead. The proposed roof is to prevent water damage to the structures. The house is a corner lot and has frontage on Freemason Street and Raleigh Avenue. Both structures are visible from both streets. The reconstruction of the fire-damaged exterior involves replacement and repair in-like and in-kind, and will match the remaining, undamaged portions of the structures. The applicant's request is for the roof connection. The primary structure features a hipped roof pitch on the faҫade facing Raleigh Avenue, and that hip roof will continue to attach to the gable roof of the garage. The roof plan shows valleys in the roof that lead the water flow to the gutter system.
