This past month, one of my clients began construction on a renovation to their house, adding a bedroom for a growing family. With a two-story townhouse and a desire to preserve the backyard, the only place to go was up. However, rather than raising the roof, they decided to convert the space in the attic. A bedroom in the attic is not just another bedroom. Ceilings vault, often steeply, as if peaks in the Alps, soaring high up into tree canopies—the vantage point of birds.
