Tom Coburn, Construction Supervisor.

Since moving to Colorado in 1994 from Minnesota, I have worked with Harrington Stanko on many high end residential and commercial projects. My history as a framer has allowed me to learn the fundamentals of building and is practiced in the day to day operations. I enjoy working with the many trades in creating unique homes for our clients. I take pride in being on site from excavation to punch lists. 

Zach Roth, Superintendent

Zach is responsible for oversight of the construction process through completion. He brings a lifetime of construction and architectural experience to the table. Growing up around job sites and graduating from the University of Colorado Boulder with a degree in Environmental Design, he has a well-rounded understanding of the details and precision that go into such a process. When not working, Zach is out playing hard - from surfing breaks in Nicaragua to running mountains in Nepal.

Brett Stensland, Supervisor

 Brett has climbed the ranks from timber framing and trim carpentry to project supervisor over a 20-year tenure in the building trades. His energy and enthusiasm are enjoyed by everyone he works around.



Paul von Mettenheim, Superintendent

Paul has lived in Colorado since the eighties after graduating from Evergreen College in Evergreen, WA where he studied Outdoor Education. Paul's passion for building started from building wooden Dories in Durango, CO. This led him to become involved in construction on the Front Range. Throughout his career, Paul has been involved in all phases of building and construction from running his own company to being a Superintendent for Harrington Stanko. 

Kyle Graham, Supervisor

Since I was a young boy and watched three generations of the same family construct our home in the Blue Ridge Mountains, I wanted to be a carpenter and builder. Since I moved to Colorado in 1982, my association with Harrington Stanko has made that a reality, and to this day I continue to expand my knowledge in the field.
