Allen, Amber From: Sent: To: Subject: Eric John Matthies Friday, December 9, 2022 1:28 PM HPD Preservation Case #GF 22-169711 Follow Up Flag: Flag Status: Follow up Flagged . Learn why this is important at [You don't often get email from https://aka.ms/LearnAboutSenderIdentification ] *** External Email ‐ Exercise Caution *** Hello I am writing about the landmark commission application meeting for the property at 801 W. Johanna St While the public commission meeting is scheduled for the 14th it would appear that some demolition has already begun in the front yard area. Further, the back gate has been left disabled and open, as is the back door of the property. As close neighbors to the property we have concerns about this landmark craftsman being demolished, and the apparent haste with which the demo company and or the new property owners are treating the house and land prior to the hearing. Leaving the home accessible while obviously vacant is a concern for our neighborhood which already sees an increase in theft and burglary. Beginning to announce the demolition, and in fact appearing to have begun the work prior to a proper hearing is in the least, disrespectful of the neighborhood and neighbors. Thank you for your attention to this matter. Eric Matthies ‐ The universe is ceaselessly creative. ‐ CAUTION: This email was received at the City of Austin, from an EXTERNAL source.

20 – 1 HISTORIC LANDMARK COMMISSION PERMITS IN NATIONAL REGISTER HISTORIC DISTRICTS NOVEMBER 2, 2022 HR-2022-152879 WILLOW-SPENCE 1020 SPENCE STREET PROPOSAL Partially demolish and construct an addition to the rear side of a ca. 1912 contributing building. Construct a garage apartment at rear of lot. PROJECT SPECIFICATIONS 1) Construct a rear addition two-story addition to the existing one-story house. The addition is connected to the main house by a glass hyphen. It is clad in stack bond brick, stucco, and vertical wood siding. The roofline is mostly flat and clad in TPO, save for a small section of standing-seam metal shed roofing. Fenestration is mostly fixed, undivided, and vertically oriented. 2) Construct a two-story detached garage apartment with alley access at the rear of the lot. Proposed finishes and roofline appear to match the new addition. 3) Replace siding, windows, and roof and move the front door at the main house. Construct an accessible ramp and handrail to the front porch. The proposed window and door replacements modify original openings and window configurations. ARCHITECTURE RESEARCH One-story National Folk house with pyramidal hipped roof, board-and-batten siding, and inset partial-width porch supported by turned posts. Fenestration includes double entry doors and 1:1 wood windows. The 1985 Willow-Spence National Register Historic District nomination describes the house as “a one-story, board-and-batten cottage with a hipped roof and corner porch. Many architectural details are intact, including a Victorian comer-porch column. New elements include a cement foundation, steps, and porch floor.”1 The house at 1020 Spence was constructed around 1912 as a rental property. Its architectural details share many similarities with “Hofheinz houses,” distinctive National Folk houses rented out in East Austin to working-class families during the early years of the twentieth century by Edmund and Oscar Hofheinz. From the East Austin Context Statement (East Austin Historic Resource Survey), Vol. 1, p. I-40: The first two decades of the 1900s were rampant with development throughout the East Austin survey area …residential construction in these new developments reflected evolving trends in domestic designs, as the eclectic tastes of the Victorian era waned and simpler styles and detailing became more widespread. Among the poor and working classes, new house types began to replace more traditional forms. The linear, one‐room‐deep plans that featured gabled roofs…gave way to a new generation of houses with deeper, more box‐like plans and often had hipped or pyramidal roofs with inset porches. The effect …

Mold Assessment Summary Client Name Project Address Date of Inspection November 21, 2022 Scope Entire Structure Ilia Belov 2003 Canterbury Street ~ Austin, TX 78702 Summary of Findings and Lab Results My inspection revealed the following suspect conditions: • Visible mold-like growth • Elevated moisture content • Water damage or staining Samples were recommended according to the conditions observed and/or the reported complaints or concerns. Surface samples were collected from areas of visible mold-like growth, and laboratory analysis confirmed the presence of mold on the areas sampled as follows: • Crawlspace – Floor Truss • Primary Bedroom – Wall drywall • Kitchen – Ceiling Drywall Air samples were collected from the following areas, and laboratory analysis indicated the airborne mold spore concentration levels to be statistically elevated when compared to the outdoor air sample collected at the same time and place. Based on these results, there is a high likelihood that an indoor source of mold growth in the tested area is amplifying the indoor levels as follows: • Kitchen • Primary Bedroom • Primary Bathroom • Living Room Final Conclusion Based on the findings of the visual inspection and/or the lab results of the samples collected, mold remediation is needed. Corporate Office: (512) 535-2493 • 10403 Quail Ridge Dr., Austin, TX 78704 www.MoldInspectionTexas.com Recommendations 1. Engage Mold Inspection Sciences to write a Mold Remediation Protocol for the remediation project which is to include the following areas: • Living Room (<25 SF) • Kitchen (<25 SF) • Primary Bedroom (<25 SF) • Primary Bathroom (<25 SF) If less than (< 25 SF) 25 SF of visible mold growth was present, according to the Texas Mold Assessment and Remediation Rules (Rules), Exceptions and Exemptions, (b) Minimum area exemption, “A person is not required to be licensed under this subchapter to perform mold remediation in an area in which the mold contamination for the project affects a total surface area of less than 25 contiguous square feet.” In this case, a Licensed Mold Remediation Contractor is not required, but we strongly recommend hiring a licensed company. NOTICE: According to the Texas Mold and Remediation Rules (Rules): Regardless of the size of the area affected by mold contamination, if a licensed Mold Remediation Contractor is hired by the consumer, the Mold Remediation Contractor must follow the Rules. This includes developing a work plan which follows a protocol developed by a licensed Mold Assessment …
