BRASS-MILAM McCall HOUSE 1409 NE]WINGAVE PROPOSAL BY: BENJAMW GEORGE II OFHEAWHVOOD CARPENTRYCo. PROPOSAL FOR: AMANDA COCHRAN-MCCALL SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR'S STANDARDS FOR REHABILITATION 1. A property shall be used for its historic purpose or be placed in a new use that requires minimal change to the defining characteristics of the building and its site and environment. 2. The historic character of a property shall be retained and preserved. The removal of historic materials or alteration of features and spaces that characterize a property shall be avoided. 3. Each property shall be recognized as a physical recotd of its time, place, and use. Changes that create a false sense of historical development, such as adding conjectural features or architectural elements from other buildings, shall not be undertaken. 4. Most properties change over time; those changes that have acquired historic significance in their own right shall be retained and preserved. 5. Distinctive features, finishes, and construction techniques or examples of craftsmanship that characterize a property shall be preserved. 6. Deteriorated historic features shall be repaired father than replaced. Where the severity of deterioration requires replacement of a distinctive feature, the new feature shall match the old in design, color, texture, and other visual qualities and, where possible, materials. Replacement of missing features shall be substantiated by documentary, physical, or pictorial evidence. 7. Chemical or physical treatments, such as sandblasting, that cause damage to historic materials shall not be used. The surface cleaning of structures, if appropriate, shall be undertaken using the gentlest means possible. 8. Significant atcheological resources affected by a project shall be protected and preserved. If such tesources must be disturbed, mitigation measures shall be 9. New additions, exterior alterations, or related new construction shall not destroy historic materials that characterize the property. The new work shall be differentiated from the old and shall be compatible with the massing, size, scale, and architectural features to ptotect the historic integrity of the property and its undertaken. environment. 10. New additions and adjacent or related new construction shall be undertaken in such a manner that if removed in the future, the essential form and integrity of the historic property and its environment would be unimpaired. SCOPE OF PROPOSED REHABILITATION PROJECrS ENTRYWAY DESIGN AND FABRICATION JobStimmary After extensive research on this property, located in the historic Travis Heights neighborhood, we have decided on an entryway that reflects the integrity of this beautiful home and its surroundmgs. This home was originally built by a German immigrant (Gustav Brass) and the original door has long since been. lost. The proposed project for the entry\vsy wffl feature two sideUghts on both sides of the door, and an operable transom above the enti'5'way. The door \viU be in the "cottage" style and wUl feature details commonly found on stately homes in die surrounding areas (Travis Heights, Hyde Park, New Braunfels, etc.). The current front door has seen better days, and is not original to the home. There are holes in the door neariag l/4 inch, and die glass is hardly being held in place by what Utde glass bead is left. My beUefis that this is a rear or balcony door that at some point was retrofitted to replace the original door. That being said, there are a couple of features from this door that we \viU retam to keep in line with the home s integrity for the past 40 years. (See last image of current door.) Despite research on the current property, we were not able to find any photographs where the entry door, transom and sidelite were visible. The current tcaasom appears original to the home based on physical inspection reveaUng trim profile details typical of historic homes of the period and the typical inclusion of such aicflow features. There is minor wood rot in the material surrounding the glass which impairs the funcdonaUt}^ of the transom and creates a poteadal safety risk should the glass become unsecured over tkne. We will repair the transom to full funcdonaUty with no visible change to its appearance. The current single sideUte may not be original to the property based upon physical inspection which reveals differences in trim profile from the transom. (Though not relevant to the design, the interior trim at the glass bed also has damage from household pets jumping to attempt to peer out of the glass and iaadvertendy scratching and damaging die wood trim.) These details, coupled with the fact that the door is also not original, support the preferred design proposal of an entiyway configuration of two sideUtes flanking the door—which was typical of homes of the period. This design has the additional benefit of providing visibility to household pets without necessitating thek umpiag up onto any part of the enttyway.
