About Watershed Structures

Jake Trim

Co-Founder, CEO

Head of sales & marketing, and customer service, Jake is driven to deliver a positive experience to clients, employees, and vendors in a collaborative and creative environment.   

Throughout his career, Jake has had the opportunity to immerse himself in all aspects of a business. He’s worked closely with diverse teams, including finance, purchasing, engineering, and hyper-creative marketing groups, to sales and service professionals. This has all contributed to his deep understanding of the intricacies that make a great organization that values their clients. 

Jake brings his detail and results-focused experience from work with brands like Sonicare and Clarisonic, and organizations like Barn Pros and Costco. He is comfortable in any setting and can work with you in person or on Zoom to finalize a plan to meet your needs. With a creative eye for design elements combined with a passion for building quality and functionality into every Watershed Structure DADU, Jake is committed to offering the best product in the industry.

If Jake isn’t landscaping his yard, he’s probably in the garage working on a creative home improvement project such as a fountain, light fixture, or table. He enjoys spending time with his wife, two boys, and his Triumph motorcycle.

Shawn Kenyon

Co-Founder, COO

Head of operations, logistics, client support, and installation, Shawn’s passion for people, the built environment, and continuous improvement mesh together to form a broad, cohesive foundation.  

Early in his career, Shawn developed a strong interest in woodworking and honed his construction skills as a Builder in the United States Navy Seabees. He later combined his artistic eye and Builder techniques to design, build, and hand-cut every mortise and tenon of Watershed Structure’s heavy timber Operations Headquarters. From furniture to timber-frame structures, you will see his creative influence and attention to detail in every sliver. When coupled with his extensive background as a continuous improvement professional for organizations like Genie Industries, Nordstrom, and King County, he understands efficiency as well as the customer experience.   

Shawn feels at home with just about everyone and is a true collaborator on every project. He is relentless in his pursuit to create new ways to improve efficiency, eliminate waste, and reduce cost, to deliver projects better, faster, and cheaper than anyone else in the industry.  

When Shawn’s not creating sawdust in the shop, you can find him exploring the backroads of the PNW on his Harley or spending time with his wife and two kids.

What is a CLT panel?

Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is a wood panel system that is rapidly gaining popularity in the U.S. after being widely adopted in Europe. The strength, dimensional stability, and rigidity of CLT allow it to be used in mid- and high-rise buildings.
