Touring Vizcaya

Project: Ranch Expansion, Episode 17, Part 2



The plumber installs a double sink vanity in the kids' bathroom. Bob goes on a field trip to Miami for a look around the grounds of Vizcaya, the breathtaking Italianate palazzo built before the age of income taxes. Back at the site, contractor Larry Landers and the crew cleverly conceal a bulkhead door beneath the farmer's porch.
