Enclosing second story living room to make additional bedroom?

We are putting a contract on this house. It's horribly ugly but we are desperate to find something after our home burned down this summer. We've been looking for months and can't find anything in our price range with enough room for our family. We have 5 teens at home and need to make an additional bedroom in this house to accommodate everyone. We have considered enclosing the second story living room and creating a bedroom there. My heartbreak is that I love lots of light and I know enclosing it will decrease the light in there. Is there anything I can do to create better lighting?
