We have had the privilege of working on some extraordinary projects throughout the years – everything from historical renovations to state-of-the-art new constructions, but it’s rare that we get to document a project in detail from start to finish. Slocum Hall Design Group Principal and Owner, David Boronkay, has taken on a major renovation and addition to his recently purchased home in Newton, giving us a special inside look at every step in the building, design and renovation process. Watch the progress on our social media and below as we follow the build from start to finish!

As David inches closer to the finish line, he walks us through the current status of his own home renovation. The second floor is completely painted, and a balcony was created off the bedroom, giving the home as much outdoor living space as possible. Stunning light fixtures were installed throughout. The exterior is fully painted, and with the unseasonably warm weather, the hardscape, which had taken cues from the architecture of the house, is nearing completion.

We are thrilled to share an updated video of David’s house, complete with finished interiors! This 1860s farmhouse-style home was fully transformed for modern-day living. With the unique perspective of being both the architect and client, David walks us through the home’s design and gut renovation, creating a stunning contemporary space suited to his taste and lifestyle.
