New restrictions have been put in place by the county which frowns on lofts used for a living space, with the Fire Code being a factor. It seems that smaller lofts for storage ONLY could be approved. However, condo owner or contractor should contact: Anthony Fukuoka, Molokai Building Inspector, (808) 553-4165 for information on submission of a formal request for inspection & approval, after which the Board should be presented with remodel plans.
Washer & Dryers:
No rule governing washer/dryer installation as long as plumbing/electrical permits are obtained and signed off and the Board approves your plans. Sound abatement should be a consideration. Dryer may not vent out of the roof, and placement needs to be approved by the Board.
No rule forbidding dishwasher installation, as long as it is installed with proper plumbing permits and is signed off properly and the Board approves your plans. Sound abatement should be a consideration.
Installing a Shower to Replace the tub:
No rule forbidding shower installation, as long as it is installed with proper plumbing permits and is signed off properly by the building Inspector and the Board approves your plans.
The only official screen door approved is the Eclipse door as a permanent fixture, however, we have accepted similar doors that mimic that brand, in style and color. The magnetic screens are not on the list, not lending a consistent look for the buildings, and they tend to look a bit funky. No rules govern lanai screen doors, EXCEPT that they be INSIDE the condo and not outside the sliding doors.
No rules for doorknobs. We have encouraged owners to match the original hardware.
Doors & Jambs –
The front entry door, door jamb, door stop and casing may be replaced as requested by an owner, provided the Property Manager has inspected the door and adjoining materials and confirmed the door needs to be replaced.
The homeowner will assume 100% of the material and labor replacement costs and upon receipt of your expenses, Kepuhi Beach Resort AOAO will reimburse the owner for 40% of those costs.
The door hardware (hinges, door knob and locking mechanisms) may be replaced as the owner wishes, at their cost.
If it is determined that the door only needs to be resurfaced, the Kepuhi Beach painter will, within his already scheduled duties, refinish the door by stripping old paint, sanding and applying primer, before coating it with our new durable paint.
When installing new flooring in upper units, an adequate sound barrier must be installed, especially for tile floors (inside and outside, on lanai). Installation of other types of floor coverings with a sound barrier would be a welcome addition to show respect for occupants of contiguous units who can be subjected to noises emanating from above or next door.
The louver mechanisms are the sole responsibility of the Homeowner.
The Association will pay 50% for the wood/materials and contract the installation for new wooden louvers.
The purchase and installation cost for Glass Louvers is solely the homeowners responsibility. The board will approve Glass Louvers manufactured by Breezeway
