Colton Tripke has done framing and finishing for Al Stober Construction on a couple of projects. We have found him to be extremely detail oriented, dependable, reliable and hard working.

I look forward to working with him in the future and I would recommend him for any project.

We were on the front end of a fairly major renovation of our 23-year-old home.  I am not well-versed in construction and the  project was overwhelming.  We knew what we wanted but had no idea how to proceed.  Every project involves dozens of decisions.  The first one we made turned out to be the most important.  A friend recommended Colton Tripke of CT Carpentry and we hired him both as Project Manager and chief carpenter. 


Colton’s attention to detail was amazing.  He has an attitude toward his own work and that of the trades that says, “It has to be done right.”  He always showed up when he said he would and we always felt that our project came first.  He demonstrated a good blend of offering professional recommendations while also considering what we wanted.  Also, he finished the project on time.


Above all, Colton Tripke operates with complete integrity.  Knowing I had someone running the project who could be trusted was the most important component.

Our library needed a unique piece of furniture for a teen area of one of our branches.  The product had to be highly durable, attractive, mobile and sleek looking.  Colton listened to what we needed, and created the unit from our very specific requirements.  Colton made it exactly as we envisioned, of a high quality product, in the expected time frame and at a very reasonable price.  It is obvious that he pays very careful attention to details, making sure that the customer is completely satisfied with his work.  We will certainly use his services again.   The staff working in the branch report the unit is really sturdy and it holds far more books than they thought it would.
