Building and Remodel report January 14, 2020

Katy McNaughton
18247 13th Ave NW
House remodel
Kitchen /deck addition

The project is mainly an interior remodel of the existing home with an addition of 90 square feet to the southwest corner of the kitchen. The kitchen will bump out @ 6’ to the west, underneath the existing eaves. The plan also proposes to add 250 square feet of deck off the west-side of the house. The house is also proposed to be re-roofed with a dark non-reflective asphalt/ composite material. A sample was shown at the meeting. There also was some discussion about the possibility of changing the color and or materials of house exterior in the future. If pursued, additional Board review will be required.
The Board voted unanimously to approve the McNaughton project as proposed in the submitted plans to the Board, including the roofing material as shown at the meeting, in the dark non-reflective asphalt material.

After an $18k year-end contribution to our Asset Reserve and a heavy Legal expense month that depleted much of our Checking and Savings accounts, we closed December with Operating Checking balance at $780, the Collections Savings balance at $1,895 and the Asset Reserve Savings at $295,204. We had budgeted to contribute $50,380 to our Asset Reserve, but also draw $45k from it – for a net contribution of $5,380. However, we didn’t draw anything from our Asset Reserve in 2019 as the respective Board chairpeople were able to contain expenses within their normal budgets – not dipping into the Reserve. So, instead of a net $5,380 contribution to our Asset Reserve, we made a full $18k contribution. Annual dues payments are already being made by some residents in anticipation of the $735 dues passing at the Annual Meeting. Please pay attention for your annual statement / invoice arriving in the mail soon and promptly pay your dues.

CLUBHOUSE, Brian Branagan –
A pool of water in the Men’s bathroom was discovered in the last week of December. The source of the slow leak was found to be a leak in the copper cold water pipe behind the wall beneath bathroom sink. Water to the bathroom was turned off and the repair was completed on January 13, 2020.

For the month of December, the Clubhouse had three rentals: an exercise class, a birthday celebration, and one celebration of life. The Innis Arden Activities Committee hosted the Holiday Party at the clubhouse.

If you are interested in renting the clubhouse for events, please contact Cheryl Malone at 206-542-5558 or reservations@innisarden.org.
