His passion for building extends over 25 years and includes a Bachelor of Science in Building Construction Management from Michigan State University. He has experience in virtually every facet of homebuilding, from design to field management to working as a division president with a Fortune 500 national luxury home builder.
Ron has built his reputation as one of the Lowcountry’s premier builders by listening and delivering. His hands-on approach assures that every aspect of the home building project is handled personally and professionally. His clients have become his friends and his clients’ referrals have built his company.
Ron Boshaw believes in high level experience and knowledge in all areas. This approach to homebuilding is collaborative and Ron has assembled a team of professionals that includes an interior designer, client services manager and project managers. The Boshaw Team also includes skilled suppliers and subcontractors who share Ron’s commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction.

Don Darrow, Project Manager
For Don Darrow, construction runs in the family. Boshaw Residential’s lead Project Manager says he began his career in the home building industry at the age of five, right next to his dad. “It’s in my blood,” Don adds.
His experience includes an impressive range of projects including upscale hotels, banks and other residential communities. He was just 18 years old when he became a project manager for D. L. Sweeny. Don then launched his own business, working on new homes and remodels. He also owned a custom kitchen company, managing multiple aspects such as sales, operations and accounting. Previously he dabbled in the insurance business. The Bluffton area caught Don’s eye when he met Ron and the Boshaw Residential team…and the rest is history.
Don enjoys family time with his lovely wife and three active kids. So far two of his children share his love of baseball. The entire family participates in sports and they can’t get enough of the lowcountry outdoors. When he’s not on the job, Don likes to fish, hunt and play golf. He’s also a devoted baseball coach and occasionally calls the plays in the kitchen, where he’s prepared some impressive dishes!
Dean Segraves, Project Manager
The newest member of the Boshaw Residential Team, Dean Segraves hails from Indiana where his passion for building began at an early age. Dean was his dad’s young assistant throughout various construction projects. During his college years Dean became an apprentice carpenter and after graduating from Ball State University, transitioned to a bona fide project management position.
For ten years Dean committed his evolving skill set to a large commercial contractor but felt it was time to launch his own company. He did just that and after several successful years, he and his family relocated to Bluffton. There Dean accepted a project management position with a custom home builder. He believes he’s found his niche in custom home building and says, “I feel very fortunate to join Ron Boshaw and his fantastic team!”
Dean adds that his amazing wife and three beautiful children are the center of his life. He enjoys coaching and getting involved in all types of sports. Dean has a true appreciation for the outdoor opportunities that surround us in the Lowcountry.
Laurie Sundberg, Design Coordinator
A native of the western suburbs of Chicago, Laurie Sundberg headed south to Atlanta shortly after graduating from the Southern Illinois University. She worked a number of years in real estate, design and renovation, then started her own company, focusing on the purposeful design of space. She called her innovative venture “Regeneration: Living by Design.”
Fast forward to 2015 when Laurie and her husband, Jack, decided to relocate to the Lowcountry. They purchased a lot in the Stock Farm development of historic downtown Bluffton and then searched for the right home builder. After several interviews, it was clear that Ron Boshaw won the honors. “Plus he understood my humor,” Laurie says. When their home was completed, Ron approached Laurie to join the team as Design Coordinator. She was positive it was the right fit.
Laurie’s the mother of two grown daughters and recently became a grandmother to the joy of her life, precious Alexander! She reports Jack is happily pursuing his passion composing music and playing the saxophone with his quartet. Laurie’s leisure time is generally spent watercolor painting, biking, working out, and walking at the beach.

Her roots are in New York City and later Boston, where she was employed by AT&T for 27 years in numerous capacities from computer programmer to regional sales VP staff to product specialist and project service manager.
