Transcript 7 The original house, typical of the 1930s. l#;#l|;#w "It's hard to tell where the inside ends and the outside begins." DRASTIC CHANGES Although Burdette Keeland found that he could not build four townhouses on his new property because of a sewer moratorium, he still managed to split the land into three separate parts which are now owned by three separate people. He's in the original house — though you'd never recognize it. By shaving about 14 feet off the existing porch and den (see before plans), he was able to liberate one-half of the original property to sell as a new home site. Then he replatted the remaining property in such a way that the garage/servant quarters, remodeled into a separate townhouse (see above), could be sold separately by leaving driveway access along the side. Unfortunately, Keeland couldn't persuade local bankers to finance a mortgage for that because to them it still looked like servants' quarters. He finally got financing from an out-of-town bank. He called it a townhouse — which it most certainly is, and a dramatic one at that — and did all the negotiating by mail. "It worked out well," t he recalls, and he sold it shortly thereafter. Left top: Keeland drastically changed the front of the house, modifying its t4tooflat" facade and re-siding with rough cedar. Left middle: Only minor changes were made in the kitchen. Paint makes the difference. Left: An English walnut table sits catty-cornered in the dining room. HoustonHome&Garden/June 1978 93 mm
