With the help of his Miami real estate agent, Randy was able to install custom touches, such as dentil moldings and casement windows to add instant architecture.
Pocket doors between the bedroom and the living area also provide a quick fix for a small space that, depending on the situation, needs to be open and airy or private.
The second time Randy ever saw the apartment was on move-in day—four months after he discovered it. Randy made the trip a family affair. "My brother, who is the foreman of my construction company, drove the furniture down and helped hang everything," he says. "Within two hours, we were done unpacking. Within 12 hours, it looked like it looks now. So we had a great vacation."
