PROPOSED DESIGN SHOWSg
STANDING--SEAM COPPER ROOF ON MANSARD PORTIONS, WHICH WE WISH TO CHANGE, BE-
CAUSE OF THE EXPENSE O~ COPPER AT THIS TIME, TO CEDAR SHINGLES INTERLACED WITH SHEETS OF
ASBESTOS PAPE~, OR APPLIED OVER TOP OF ASBESTOS PAPER, OR APPLIED OVER TOP OF 1/2" THICK
GYPSUM-BOARD SHEATHING APPLIED OVER, OR
UNDER, 1/~" TH I CK PL YWOOD SH EATH U NG.

DEVIATION FROM BUILDING CODE REQUIREMENT:
PERMIT A STEEP ROOF, PITCH 22/12, TO BE CLASSIFIED AS A WALL. IF IT WERE
A WALL9 WE COULD APPLY WOOD SHINGLES OVER 1/2" THICK GYPSUM BOARD SHEATHING; IN FACT MOST OF
THIS BUILDING IS PATTERN 1-11 PLYWOOD OVER GYPSUM SHEATHING.

REASON FOR REQUESTED DEVIATIONg
SAVE MONEY OVER COST OF COPPER, OR TURN METAL. ALSO AN APPEARANCE FACTOR,
AS WE WOULD MUCH PREFER TO USE REAL CEDAR SHINGLES TO COMPOSITION SHINGLES. THERE IS GOOD
SEPARATION OF THIS BUILDING FROM AD~ACENT BUILDINGS ON ALL SIDES. THERE IS A SITUATION OF
STREETS ON TWO SIDES9 PARKING LOTS ON THE REMAINING TWO SIDES.

THE EXISTING STRUCTURE NOW HAS TWO NARROW OPEN STAIRSo THE ARRANGEMENT O~ THE CORRIDORS AND STAI_RS MAKE
CONVERSION TO AN APPROVED ENCLO$ED STAIR SYSTEM PRACTICALLY IMPOSSIBLEo THE ~RONT STAIR CONNECTS THE ~IRST

BASEMENT ARE VERY LOWo THE STAIRWAY LEADING TO THE BASEMENT HAS INSU~~ICIENT HEAD ROOMo THE SO- CALLED

WOULD RECOMMEND AGAINST ANY FURTHER USE OF THIS STRUCTURE AS A SCHOOL FACILITYo IF THE APPEAL OF JUNE
