Seattle's Smith Tower Has One Stylish Home At The Very Top (VIDEO)

The most successful designs are all about thinking big, and no one can attest to that more than Petra Franklin, who converted the top of one of Seattle's most recognizable skyscrapers into her dream home.

Franklin now lives in the Smith Tower in Washington with her two daughters. It was originally a utility space and a caretaker's apartment, but now it's a two-story, two-bedroom, two-bathroom house. And believe it or not, it actually wasn't too hard to accomplish. With some new floors, the addition of a staircase and the removal of many layers of old paint, Franklin was able to create quite a unique space. The best part? The breathtaking views, of course.
