Jon Dawson

Maker: Episode 5

Jon Dawson is a young contractor with a heart almost as big as his love for building. He runs his company, Dawson Co Homes, with his beautiful wife in Waco, TX. Jon’s specialty is taking old materials, sometimes from the 1920s, and repurposing them into modern creations. He strives to create unique household items that you can’t buy anywhere else. Regarding his versatility, Jon is an expert carpenter with strong electrical and mechanical skills. His welding isn’t great, but he’s confident he can figure it out. As a child, Jon’s dad owned a few flooring stores across the central coast. He was put to work at a young age and fell in love with craftsmanship when he was forced to fix lawn mowers and weed whackers. Problem-solving is a true passion for Jon.
