Stephen's Renovations

Loft Apartment Conversion

This renovation converted the entire space into one loft area. The client wanted a loft feel but with a defined living section in each area of the apartment. The finished result turned out perfectly as seen on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor.

Hallway Graffiti Chest

DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor, hosted by "Contractor to the Stars" Stephen Fanuka, gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at some of the most amazing spaces and construction of Manhattan's high-end luxury homes. This hallway chest was transformed into a piece of graffiti art complimenting the black and white striped mirror above.

Bright Blue Foyer

Almost every room in the apartment was re-imagined and reconfigured. A brightly painted new foyer with wall paper and light fixtures accompanied by a floor rug brings the room space to life on Million Dollar Contractor.

Transformed Living Room

The living room, formerly the master bedroom, underwent a dramatic transformation thanks to Stephen Fanuka and his crew. A beautiful antique wooden bookcase was relocated to this room, as well as a new window on the northwest wall as seen here on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor.

Jigsaw Marble Bath

The master bath features marble tile with mother of pearl insets, and a curved vanity built by Stephen Fanuka, which maximizes the available space while complementing the pre-war style of the apartment on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor.

Marilyn and the Foyer

As featured on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor, the foyer features blue savoy slabs, mahogany doorways and entresols of high gloss finish. The staircase has been fitted with a new banister in high gloss finished wood to match the doors and entresols and new balusters. A large photograph of Marilyn Monroe graces the foyer wall.

Impressive Foyer

As seen on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor, this entry foyer is spectacular. A wintery theme art along the walls is one more reason why Stephen said this was the nicest home he's ever built.

A Livable Living Room

An engaging living space with a big screen TV and couch, a timeless fireplace mantle and table for games, it's perfect for family and friend fun on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor. Stephen Fanuka had a unique challenge in building the custom cabinet under the stairs in the living room. The goal was to maximize the use of space in the apartment, and not an inch is wasted. The cabinet is crafted from walnut, and integrates a wine rack, a desk and workspace, bookshelves, and hidden storage areas. The living room fireplace was also replaced, and fitted with a custom stone mantle.

Rooftop Solarium and Bar

As featured on DIY's Network's Million Dollar Contractor, host Stephen Fanuka created a solarium and a new bar that runs the length of the room, integrating a sink and beverage refrigerator. He also installed motorized shades, lighting, and carpet, making the space much more livable year-round. The renovation involved the application of quarter-inch slate tiles to the stairway wall. This has the effect of uniting the upstairs and downstairs, and gives the appearance of solid stone when in fact it's only as thick as two quarters.
