Thankfully, the renovation team was not only able to save the bones of the house (a solid steel frame), but also much of its mid-century charm including: single piece molded bathrooms and Japanese soaking tub, architectural beams, built in heaters and decorative moldings.

Additionally, the folks from Holler and Squall in Brooklyn, generously donated an antique chandelier to the project, which illuminates this magnificent house. Finally, a modern kitchen and new appliances along with Octagon inspired hardwood floors and tile work were installed to finish the home. Octagon House, is located in the Emerald Lakes complex, in the scenic town of Rock Hill, NY.
