More built-ins maximize storage space in the guest room, creating a niche for a Douglas fir desk with a view.The renovations also included digging out the basement for a professional recording studio, so that both women can work long-distance from here. The basement also has a sauna and a laundry room. This made the most of the space available with minimal expansion of the home's original footprint. Chair: vintageMore: 5 Incredible Home Conversions
