How many times has this happened to you: you go to tons of trouble coming up with a blueprint for creating your dream office out of the last bit of unused space in your tiny home... only to find yourself unexpectedly expecting your first child.

Never? Well, you might still want to check out this fantastic home tour on AT NY, which gives us a peek at the first stages of a full-home renovation to accommodate both child AND work space. Don't forget to take notes. Because you should never say never...

Parents LJ and Elena (who, luckily enough, happen to both be architects) converted their 500 square foot studio loft into a place where they and newcomer Teo can all live and work: With a few pen strokes and a new attitude, their ideas for space efficiency became plans for a baby room instead of an office and a playpen instead of storage...

Here are a few of our favorite images:
