"There are hidden pluses when you renovate like this," says Leskovar. "We worked out an opening to the studio with a miniature, angled door. Though we never planned it, and the plumber shook his head, we tucked in the cutest little powder room I've ever built." He adds: "To put so much into a small house in a nice, organized way is really remarkable. And it's fun to walk through because in every corner something draws your eye."
