Window and Deck Standard Discussion in January 2021

At the January 2021 Hamlet Board meeting, we will discuss and vote on updating two community standards. All homeowners are invited to discuss these issues in our community boards now and at our virtual meeting on January 12, 2021

Windows & Patio Doors

The Hamlet’s window standard is significantly outdated and contains a couple of requirements that impose unnecessary financial hardships. The Board will post a proposal for a new standard in the days ahead as a basis for discussion. A final recommendation will be presented before and during the January meeting.

You can participate in a discussion now via our new Community Boards. We’ve setup a topic specific to windows here:

The Board will vote on adding the option to use Trex composite board on decks. We will also consider adding one or more stain colors in addition to “natural wood” for decks. Finally, we will vote on a proposal to allow interior homes to have stairs; currently only end units are permitted to have stairs leading from their decks to back yards.
