Returning home Avenues residents lovingly restore 1912 house to its original luster
Though they were glad for the extra bedrooms when they bought the house, Richardson imagines the original owners would have been fine with putting all their children in bunk beds in the one bedroom where his son now sleeps. After all, he says, it is a large bedroom.
And as for the babies in the family, he knows where they slept in a nursery off the master bedroom. Richardson and his wife use the nursery as a walk-in closet.But he knows it was a nursery originally. It was designed to hold not one, but two, cribs, he explains. Just because it was 1,500 square feet doesn't mean his home couldn't have held a large family, quite comfortably, back in 1912. Then, as now, he says, "This is a good place to bring up children."
