Thinking of Klingaman’s setting up is deemed historic, the South Dakota Historic Preservation Place of work might make tips on any new perform on the home and ascertain no matter if it shields the historic nature of the setting up. Town Planner Neil Putnam broke down the tips built by historic preservation officers.
“One of the responses is that the garage is not connected to the constructing. And they would also like to see the front have some variety of historic visual appeal, and not just solid steel,” Putnam mentioned.

Around the previous yr, Klingaman has been repairing up the complete developing to renovate it into his household. Now that Klingaman and his relatives are residing there, he’s going onto introducing a garage.
“I’ve appeared into placing a garage in the basement, but that’s not going to do the job, but that’s not feasible. I really don’t want my autos sitting out in the open up down there due to the fact there is a large amount of vandalism,” Klingaman claimed. “I figured this is tucked absent ample that I could make it get the job done. I renovated the upstairs and pretty a great deal the entire interior. I approach to do the outside as very well.”
Commission member Larry Jirsa opposed the metal siding of the garage, noting it “doesn’t fit” for the house. Jirsa was also anxious that permitting the whole garage to be constructed with metal would established a precedent for other downtown residence owners.

There are too several metal properties downtown, and I individually consider metallic structures have kind of screwed downtown up,” Jirsa reported. “If we approve metal, then a downtown residence like Dr. Lucky’s must be ready to set 1 up up coming to their constructing.”
While the Setting up Fee collectively agreed to not let the entire garage to be built with metal, they OK’d the aspect walls, which Klingaman mentioned would “not be definitely visible,” to be produced with metal.
