Lars Lindquist

Lars

Project Manager

Lars grew up in Arvada, CO. After school he spent 5 years traveling overseas. While traveling he was inspired by the craftsmanship of centuries past and realized the continued need for craftsmanship in our present day, both in great works of art and in the homes of common folks. Lars then trained as a fine woodworker & began remodeling homes full-time in 2016. Professionally, Lars is driven to attend to the details and solve problems preemptively. His primary focus at present is utilizing construction software & technology to better prepare, organize and manage jobs. 


Lars is married and has two children. In his spare time, he enjoys playing guitar, reading books, and getting ice cream with his family.
