Transcript T+- ±ti and extended decks just outside each opening encourage the inside/outside feeling, The back courtyard is enclosed with a homosote fence, painted white to reflect the light back into the house. Closets designed in the '30s, Keeland notes, are essentially useless; there's little hanging space. And as a result of the remodeling project, each bedroom now has a roomy closet. Although the bedrooms are unchanged in size, they work better with the more convenient closets, Keeland says. Expanding into one of the useless closets also gave an added dimension to the upstairs bathroom. The cramped room nearly doubled in size. In spite of a flexible floor plan, the Keelands find that there is not quite enough living space in the house. Their next project will expand the wooden-floored porch, including adding a fireplace on the outside wall. The patio glass doors will be reused to square off the house in back. Keeland's son was the remodeling contractor for his project, and he offers these tips for anyone buying a house of this vintage. Says B. W. Keeland, "Before you start any work, make sure the floors and foundation are level." If they sag, you may have to call a foundation contractor to jack them up, he says. Try not to relocate stairs, water and sewer lines, or the electric meter. Replace all bathroom fixtures. Fixed-up old ones will eventually cause trouble.
