They raised the roof.

Removing the old roof and replacing it with a new, steeper one helped give this living room more volume and brightness. Before, the room had an ordinary 8-foot ceiling and opened onto a dark, covered porch. To expand the room, architect Michael Sheats of Berkeley pushed the walls out 3 feet toward the porch and redesigned the roof.

The high end windows fill the void between the new and the old roof lines. The central roof now extends 4 feet above the existing one, while adding more than 8 feet of height to the room.
