The Ultimate Stair Cabinet

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. In this episode of DIY's Network's Million Dollar Contractor, Fanuka Inc. 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.

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.

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.

Floating Living Room Staircase

With so much window space, the living room needed furniture to balance out the room. A free floating walnut steel stair case leads upstairs. The shades are lowered by motor and the windows are all made from lead free clear glass seen on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor.
