Photos: Remodeling the Yocum house

Local attorney Spencer Smith and his brother, Steve, are remodeling the original Tucson Botanical Garden’s home of Harrison Yocum. Spencer’s interest in construction, as well as his undergraduate degree in Geological Engineering, were two of the several reasons he purchased this unique home. Spencer has implemented the unusual collection of rocks into his remodeling by attempting to keep the original eccentric allure of Yocum’s home. Harrison Yocum was known for his unconventional designs and Spencer has worked to maintain that type of charm in his remodeling.
