Davis homeowner Janet Williams was turned onto the idea of deconstruction by Clay Johnson, the architect who is handling Williams’ Central Davis home remodel.

“I’ve been amazed at how much will be reused from this old home,” Williams said. “It feels good that though the house has to go, bulldozers won’t be coming in and tearing it to shreds.”
