Architectural Design Guide
The following guide has been developed to assist King Farm Homeowners in the design and placement of commonly requested exterior modifications.
The documents are intended to offer guidance. Some items may be completed without notice or without completing the Design Review Application process. Other items require submission of a Design Review Application for review and approval before the modification can be started and completed. Please read the notes carefully and if you have questions, please contact the Management office.
The King Farm Community Architect has developed sets of prototypical details for some of the typical homeowner requested changes. Some information is attached regarding materials that are permitted for routine maintenance. Please consult the Modification Guidelines for items not contained in this guide.
Please also note that any design change may also be subject to applicable King Farm Regulations of King Farm LLC and City of Rockville laws and regulations for permitting, construction, placement, and sound.
