Suzie McAdam has turned her house upside down. Literally.

The house is Victorian, built in 1870 with the traditional configuration of bedrooms upstairs, the living area below, and a glimpse of the sea from the upstairs bathroom window. A sea view is a wonderful thing, but less so if you're peering at it through frosted glass. McAdam and her husband decided that they could do better than that, and flipped the orientation of the house. "We extended the first floor to create a living area with a view of the sea," she explains. "The bedrooms are down below."
