A Victorian on home on Hudson Street in New York City is in the middle of a renovation. According to the Hudson Reporter, Bo Dziman and his wife Adrienne Choma purchased the property 17 years ago.

The couple has an intense list of projects to accomplish before they update the home, which was originally built in 1880, to their standards. First on the list was the kitchen.

"The original kitchen was on the garden level," Dziman told the news source. "But our kitchen has always been on the parlor level. The problem? It was small and needed to be upgraded and repositioned."

So the couple worked with the remodeling team to alter the existing kitchen so that it could best fit a modern kitchen. Ornate woodwork, large windows and radiant floor heating were installed throughout the space. The windows are designed to provide exceptional illumination in the space for every time of day, while radiant floor heating keeps the room warm and comfortable.

However, this isn't the only home in the neighborhood with radiant floor heating that has undergone a renovation. Nick Petruzzelli has personally seen to the renovations of his three-level penthouse on the West Side, according to the Hudson Reporter.

He has focused his attention on adding energy-efficient applications throughout the house to make it more livable and sustainable over time.

"My intention is to stay here with my wife and family," Petruzzelli told the news source. "I love it. I’m not going anywhere. I want to see the West Side become more and more a place where people want to live."
