Tekton means an artist and craftsman, which generally means a builder of many things; an artisan! Traditionally however, the word has been interpreted and translated simply to 'carpenter' though it would more likely include (what we think of today as) a master builder. Architects were known as an Architekton, and affectionately, a teknon and teknion are (in biblical parlance) new disciples, but these are sometimes confused with Tekton for their similar spelling.
Carpenters and woodworking craftsmen in general, were more respected in the past; lawyers & politicians were not! In the future resurrected kingdoms of YHVH, it will be the workers who will be the most respected, not the cut takers; not those who gained earthly resources off the backs of those who built and grew and raised and made, by the sweat of the brow and the toil Labor of their/our own calloused hands (Eph 4:28; 1Th 2:9-12 & 4:9-12; 2Th 3:6-10; James 1:7-11 & 2:5-10).
The Tekton was, after all, the maker of so many more things than just housing, buildings, cabinetry, furniture, tools, carts and wheels, boats, oars and masts, plows, yokes (farming implements), and so on. These skills were surely in high demand. This was also about honoring the Labor curse; why YHVH did not come onto Earth as royalty.

For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be but life from the dead? For if the first fruit is holy, the lump is also holy, and if the root is holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches are broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them, partakes of the root and fatness of the olive tree, boast not against the branches. But if you boast, you bear not the root, but the root, you. You will say then: The branches were broken off that I might be grafted in! But because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Be not high-minded, but fear, for if Elohim spared not the natural branches, take heed lest He also not spare you.
Behold therefore, the goodness and severity of Elohim; on them which fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you shall also be cut off. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in, for Elohim is able to graft them in again. For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted, contrary to nature, into a good olive tree, how much more shall these, which are the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree? For I would not, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. (Rom 11:15-25)
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the fellowships! To him who overcomes I will give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of Elohim. (Rev 2:7)
