Volume Optimized Living

How to transform a 17 qm bedroom into a 34 qm effective surface providing space for a small workshop, storage and tiny office while allowing me to live in? After 6 weeks of planning, spending 500 € on wood and screws and 8 days of labour and construction period - mission accomplished :)
