Even though 和 as 放在同一個句子,怎麼解釋?

例句: Even Though the child messed up the kitchen as he tried to clean it, his intention were good.

請問各位文法高手大大,句中Even though 和 as都是連接詞,為什麼可以放在同一個句子呢? 我記得這樣應該會形成雙重連接詞, 但如果我把as之前句子隔開,變成Even Though....the kitchen. As...clean it, his intention...good. 這樣Even though句子就沒了主要子句, 所以一直想不通,覺得很困擾不知道要如何把例句的意思合理化,請各位高手幫幫忙,我誠心奉上10點~感謝

已更新項目:

謝謝Louis sir回答,按您所說,我可否把例句翻譯成

=>這位孩童因想清理廚房而弄得一團亂,但他是出於好意

P.S. 如果例句中的as由because取代是否正確

Even Though the child messed up the kitchen "because" he tried to clean it, his intentions were good.

    his intention was good是主要子句

    兩個附屬子句都是副詞性質的:

    even though the child messed up the kitchen是修飾主要子句述部的修飾語

    as he tried to clean it是修飾前述附屬子句述部的修飾語

    [Enen though the child messed up the kitchen (as he tried to clean it)], his intention was good.

    intention是不可數名詞,連接的動詞應用單數的was

    修飾語可以有自己的修飾語。這裡的兩個修飾語都是副詞子句,副詞子句的述部受到另一個副詞子句的修飾,兩者再一起修飾主要子句的述部,全句是一個complex sentence。

    as = when

    這男孩在清理厨房時,把那裡弄得一團亂,但他的用意是好的。

    as ...提供的是弄亂厨房的時間點,不是原因,所以as不能視為because

    雖然那男孩在清理厨房時,把那裡弄得一團亂,但他是出於好意的。

    The main sentence for "even though ..." clause is "his intention were good."

    You can have as many conjunctions as you want.
