DeConstruct™ Project

This lakefront home located at 1725 Garfield Avenue in Loveland, once owned by the Foote family, is being taken apart, nail by nail, board by board, by six women from the Larimer County community corrections program.

Current owners Randy and Alicia Lofquist chose deconstruction instead of demolition so that the materials from the valuable home could be recycled and reused. In fact, woodworkers from Cajun Moon Design in Berthoud will turn some of the materials into custom furniture.

The Lofquists plan to build their dream home on the site.
