efore moving into their 1890s home, a couple in Evanston, Illinois, hired Roberts Architects & Construction to remodel the kitchen and add living space onto the back of the house. e clients also talked about renovating the unfinished attic, but they wanted to dwell in the residence first and better under- stand its needs. A third-floor project would strain their budget and scope at the time as well. "ere was a huge space with all sorts of potential up above the second floor," recalls David Roberts, company founder and owner. "High ceilings [and a lot of ] oppor- tunities there to create some really nice spaces. ey have two young children [so] they wanted a playroom space, and they wanted a guest bedroom and bathroom. ere was an old stairway to the attic, but it was not up to code." Lofty Ambition Roberts Architects & Construction rehabs the top level of a Victorian- era residence, improving second- floor living space in the meantime.
