Not a Teardown But a Deconstruction on Juniper Road

WestportNow.com Image
Jim Conboy and Michele Lamothe, owners of the house at 5 Juniper Road, off Compo Road North, decided that instead of tearing down their 1,600-square foot, 1955-built ranch, they would remodel. And instead of bulldozing the part to be remodeled, they hired a deconstruction company to take it apart piece by piece. They are pictured at the house today as pieces were taken apart. According to Lamothe, “It will be a green renovation - -solar, rain water collection system, radiant heat.” She said all the contents will be reused, repurposed or recycled with only the sheet rock ending up in the trash.

According to Conboy, the four components remaining are the foundation, floor, walls and framing. “We are the first customer of our own dismantled components—we are reusing rafters 2 feet by 8 feet as the roof over our master bedroom,” he said.
