Meet the TnT Team

Let’s work together to bring your outdoor living dreams to life! Meet the people who make it happen:

Trish Irwin, Owner

Trish oversees all the business related side of things. She has a lot of communication and interactions with clients throughout the entire process. From the first bid appointment to the final invoice and all the ideas and planning in between she’s a pro at walking you through your project. There are 3 other T’s (Tilly, Tess and Tai) that call Trish & Trent “mom and dad” On school holidays and over summer break it’s not unusual to find one of the mini T’s in the office helping out with the family business.

Trent Irwin, Owner

Trent is the brains of the construction side of things. Trent and our Project Manager Brent work closely together to plan out how to build your deck or patio cover and then Trent figures out all the parts and pieces we need to order for each project. Trent also spends a great deal of time out in the field, building and supervising projects to make sure they are built to his exacting standards. In his 30+ years in the industry Trent has encountered just about every project and problem you can imagine and has developed great techniques and specialized ways of doing things.

He draws up all the plans for our projects and works with the various jurisdictions to obtain permits for our projects as well as coordinating all the sub contractors for our projects.

Stella I, Official Mascot

Albany Oregon Deck Companies
What can we say about Stella?! If you’ve stopped by our offices chances are you’ve met this sweet girl. Stella has kind of a fun history. Her mother was a rescue dog being flown from Hawaii to Oregon, no one knew she was pregnant when the plane took off and to everyone’s surprise when the plane landed there was a mom and a litter of puppies on board. Stella was one of those puppies! While the rest of us are working, Stella spends a good majority of the day snoring loudly and rubbing in the fact that she’s the only one with a bed in the office.
