Re: Avero House restoration and Greek Orthodox National
Shrine, St. Augustine, Florida.

Dear Bob:

We are writing this letter in order to clarify our understanding
of Southern Standard Building Code as it applies to the above
referenced project. We offer the following interpretations:

1.) Type of Occupancy:
a.) The Avero House will be a restored residence
made available for public observation.
b.) The Commerative Shrine is designed as a symbolic
interior space of approximately 450 sq. ft., which
can contain no more than 30 persons and be used
primarily for public observation. Please note that
the total capacity of the Shrine is less than that
required for Small Assembly (Section 408.2(b)).
In our opinion, the large exit to St. George Street
is in compliance with code requirements and we feel
the entire building complex should fall under
Southern Standard Building Code category Group A-
Residential (Section 404).

2.) Type of Construction:
a.) Since the Avero House is of great historic sig-
nificance, we intend to restore it in accordance
with its appearance circa 1780. The main roofs
of this period were of Tabby concrete with
parapets and would approximately conform with
Type V Construction; however, the east porch

will be restored as wood framed with
shingle roof thereby placing the building
in Type VI Construction. The exterior
walls on the north and south are of solid
masonry without openings and surely can
be rated 4 hour; although parapet heights
are slightly less than code requirements.
We intend to provide an equivalent of type
"B" wood shingle roof above the east balcony.

We would appreciate your review of the code requirements
of this project and bring them to the attention of the
local building officials. We would be happy to meet
with you and local officials at your convenience.

Sincerely,
