Guidelines for Changes or Repairs to Shutters and Shutter Dogs:
Please use these guidelines for replacing or repairing one of these items on your property. Any time you alter or change the existing condition in any way, it requires a design review application. Provided that you make these changes for repair or maintenance, then a DRA is not required.
Please refer to the Shutter Installation, Design, and Materials document for a complete list of shutter materials, paint color information, and additional information for installation and design.
- No DRA is required, as long as the appearance, profile, size and dimensions of the shutters remain identical and the color remains the same.
- The material may be changed from which the shutter is made, may be changed e.g., from plastic to wood.
Shutter Dogs (fasteners) Repairs/Replacements
- Homeowners shall maintain shutter dogs (the shutter stops) on each of the windows.
Shutter Installation, Design, and Materials:
The following shall assist Homeowners in the design and placement of shutters. The documents are intended to offer guidance; final location and design approval shall be obtained from the Community Architect.
This section of the Design Guidelines requires:
- Shutters shall be operable or appear to be operable with hardware (i.e., shutter dogs) and shall be of sufficient size to cover the entire window (if both sides are closed).
- Install shutters with shutter dogs (proper hardware).
- Shutters on a front façade shall continue to side yard windows on corner lots.
- Shutters on masonry (i.e., brick front homes) facades shall be placed with the edge of the shutter (on the window side) aligned with the edge of masonry.
- Shutters on siding facades shall overlap the trim.
- Shutters shall be applied to ALL or NONE of the windows on a given level of a main building.
- If your home came with shutters, you cannot remove all or some of the shutters. You must preserve the design of the home in accordance with the King Farm design guidelines.
- The King Farm Design Guidelines for initial construction dictate that shutters shall be applied to all or none of the windows on a given level of a main building. Shutters on a front façade shall continue to side yard windows on corner lots. Equity Resolution No. 1 addresses the removal of architectural elements, such as shutters, as “other visual changes”.
