Hank Thorburn was born and raised in Western Massachusetts, spending summers with his family on the mid-coast of Maine. He graduated from Longmeadow High School and American International College. An avid kayaker, Hank raced in white water slalom for the U.S. National team in the late 70’s and early 80’s.
To support his kayak racing, Hank began to work as a carpenter in 1983. That is when he discovered his passion for older home remodeling and decided to make a lifelong commitment to the craft, opening Thor Construction in 1991.
Other interests include Laser sailboat racing, picnicking on his wooden lobster boat and restoring his family’s homestead, a saltwater farmhouse built circa 1850.
