These entries epitomized how to live big when you're short on space
Once an awkward, dark attic is now a place for quiet and relaxation. The homeowners were able to create an open, sunset-facing respite space/guest room high in tall cedar trees by removing the second floor office ceiling, installing space-saving alternate-step stairs, and adding skylights and a roof window deck. Bookshelves are also a bannister, the ledge around the open ceiling creates a display area for collectibles, wicker trunks add additional seating, and all allow for more storage. The roof window deck opens up to create added floor space and lots of fresh air. As you climb the stairs up to this cozy loft, you leave behind the day's stresses.
