What we do

Grandpa and GirlsTychon is a general contractor design/build renovation specialist. We can provide planning guidance and support from pre-construction services through to the final build, including color consultation, cabinet design, space planning, systems upgrades or appliance and materials selection, including best application approaches.

Tychon clients are looking for an experienced contractor with the creativity to bring the vision of their remodeling project into reality while effectively engineering project costs to maximize the gains to their home. Moving from reading about ideas in a book or hearing them from a consultant to actual application can be a challenge. Implementation can’t be haphazard. It must be part of a carefully considered strategy. Clients want new work to seamlessly integrate into and compliment their home’s architecture as well as be durable and practical using energy efficient, sustainable practices.

Paul Finlay, owner/operator, brings 30+ years of experience to Tychon projects that run from simple bath upgrades to more complex whole house remodels. He is known for his attention to detail from planning thru finish carpentry, sensitivity to client needs, and ability to quickly identify additional design opportunities and integrate them into a project in progress.
