After buying a 1911 Craftsman house in Northfield, Minn., architect Steve Wilmot and his family had some work to do. In addition to remodeling the upstairs bathroom, they also wanted to create a bathroom in a first-floor closet under the stairs that had a toilet but nothing else. After studying the 3-ft. by 8-ft. space and making some preliminary drawings, Wilmot realized that the space was just big enough for him to install a toilet, a sink, and a shower. In order to accomplish such a feat, however, he had to move the toilet and the door.
