X.F. Gardenside & End Additions

The Corporation has prototype drawings of gardenside additions which meet these regulations. These drawings depict additions of typical size and arrangement. Exact plans must be developed by the member; approval will be based upon compliance with all of the regulations herein.

  1. The maximum square footage of the addition is limited to the square footage of the original structure and shall not exceed one-half the distance between the original building and the yard line. Consideration must also be given to the view, sunlight, and air circulation of each neighbor affected.
  2. Additions to the gardenside of the building must extend to the dividing partition between units or leave not less than five feet. (This is to prevent the occurrence of very narrow alley ways between additions or adjacent additions.) If a member builds an addition to the dividing partition, then the adjacent member could build onto the common wall. Therefore, serious consideration should be given before windows are placed on common walls.
  3. The roof lines of an addition should be of the same type as the original structure or blend with the existing lines. In no case shall an addition have a higher roof than the original structure.
  4. The exterior building color shall be compatible with that of the main structure to which the addition or enclosure is attached. The exterior building materials shall match the main structure or adjacent additions or shall blend with the surroundings. (See section D-12 for rules on Vinyl Siding.) Roof covering material shall comply with §X.D.13.
  5. Windows shall conform to recommendations in X.N.2. Doors shall conform to recommendations in X.N.3.
