Hilarion comes to Metke as part of a family with a long history of working in the trades – you could say being a tradesman is in his blood. When he turned 21, he began his career as an apprentice carpenter and never looked back. Hilarion’s favorite part of any project is at the end when he can see the customer’s reaction to the beautiful, completed project. He also really appreciates the art of finish work, the precision and creativity that goes into the last few details that make a house a home.
When not at work, he’s out cheering for the Timbers and Trail Blazers (like any good Oregonian should) and going to concerts to help feed his love of music. But he is happiest spending time with his family. “My daughter has been the biggest motivation in my life to make something of myself, be someone she can be proud of. If not for her, I can’t say I’d be as good of a carpenter as I am today.”
