Townhouse Overhaul Part II

Stephen Fanuka continues his work on the $3.5 million Chelsea townhouse renovation in NYC. After completely gutting the entire place, he discovers major foundation problems. The side wall on every level is tearing away from the back and front, and pure friction is holding the building together. Outside, more problems are cropping up when Fanuka tries to drill into the city sewer line to install a main line for the house. The bluestone sidewalks in front of the house pose a problem because they are landmarked, and if he breaks one he could get fined and lose his license.

The Ultimate Stair Cabinet

The cabinet is crafted from walnut, and integrates a wine rack, a desk and workspace, bookshelves, and hidden storage areas.
