Crafted for Light

The family decamped to a cramped condo nearby, and a crew arrived to demolish the stairs and slice off the second floor, neatly cutting around the upstairs bath and the roof over it, leaving them intact like a hut in a clearing. Carpenters built new stairs with a cutout balustrade, and the small upstairs grew to hold two kids' bedrooms and that longed-for master suite.

Shown: The relocated staircase has Craftsman-inspired balusters that form a light-filtering screen.
