Sliding barn doors (upper right) are not just trendy. They are a great way to maximize space in relatively small rental units like these. Here, you can see how the sliding door prevents the bathroom door from blocking access between the kitchen and an adjacent bedroom.

Seymour had been planning on an extensive interior and exterior renovation, including installing a new deck (above) and cleaning up the landscaping. However, he discovered after making his purchase he would also have to reframe the entire building on all three floors, which he had not planned for in his initial budget. The city also required the investor to install a residential sprinkler system on all three floors, which added another $30,000 to the renovation costs. “I used to be a firefighter,” Seymour noted. “Investing is, in some ways, very similar. When you do a renovation, if you’re really invested in the project, you are the first one in and the last one out. You can’t do half measures, because something will always come up to surprise you.”
