Stephen Fanuka is taking on two projects, one in a 1950s apartment in New York City and another at a house in the suburbs. The 1950s apartment has never been renovated, and he has his work cut out for him.

To get away from the stressful Manhattan project, he focuses on a second house, an unfinished New York suburban basement into a bathroom and storage space. With both projects on his hands, Fanuka can only move full steam ahead to upgrade these two homes.
