John grew up in the building business, which makes him a perfect fit for family friendly Davis and Fouts Homes. John oversees the project sites, managing the work flow and schedules, quality control, and subcontractor work. He’s the project mover, literally. “Everyday is a new challenge, but in a good way. I grew up in a construction family and have been around this my entire life, so I am very comfortable on projects. It’s not work, it’s fun, and I love this job.” John’s family moved to Davis when he was very young and he attended North Davis Elementary, Emerson Jr. High, and Davis Senior High, where he played competitive soccer for 16 years. He worked for a contractor in Roseville before starting his own successful remodeling company here in town. As a key team member, John is committed to making “life in the Fouts lane” a great experience for our clients and partners alike. John lives in West Davis with his wife and two daughters.
