RE: Joaneda House

Dear Mr. Wisely:

This letter is a followup to my letter of November 2 concerning the Joaneda
House and your reply to that letter dated November 6, copies of which are
enclosed.

In your letter, it was pointed out that if compliance with ADAAG 4.1.6 Accessible
Buildings threatens to destroy historic features, that ADAAG 4.1.7 (3) Historic
Preservation Minimum Requirements may be used.

With regard to making the bathroom accessible, however, compliance with the
Historic Minimum Requirements is likewise impossible without costly and
destructive alterations to the building. The space between the historic load
bearing wall and the east exterior wall of the building (please see the floor plan
that accompanied my November 2 letter) is not sufficient to permit installation of
a bathroom that allows the required turning radius for wheelchairs. That could
only be possible by relocating the spiral staircase. In turn, the staircase would
have to be relocated on the west side of the load bearing wall. That would disrupt
the interior of the main room and require interruption of two ceiling joists,
removing historic timbers and necessitating supports for the second floor that
would cause a major intrusion. Moreover, the work would be prohibitively
expensive.

My question to you, then, is: can you or your agency exempt the bathroom of this
building from ADA requirements? Only the bathroom. presents a problem.
Otherwise, the building is accessible.
