I hired Bill Tyler Homes for two projects:
First, a $800,000 renovation of our farmhouse. This was a difficult task because the original home was built in the 1780s, then expanded and renovated in the 1980s, and then we further expanded and renovated it. He converted the garage into a play room with fireplace, and then added a glass enclosed breezeway connecting to a new two car garage with apartment on top, work room off back, and electric car charger.
As for utilities, he added a geothermal heating/cooling system to the house and enhanced the HVAC system so that heat/cool would better reach the master bedroom in the back of the house. Finally, he replaced our cedar shake roof with a metal seam roof.
Mr. Tyler was a consummate professional from beginning to end of the process. First, he assessed the project based on our preliminary plans and gave us a budget that he hit almost exactly, which was a near miracle given the multiple components, age of the house, etc. Second, he retained and managed all the trades that worked on the project. Third, he managed to help pick materials and elements that were of high quality but reasonably priced, and also consistent with the character of the house. Finally, he completed the entire project within a short time frame. Tyler was easy to communicate with, listed to us, and built our dream house.
Mr. Tyler's second project for us was the construction of a $700,000 farm winery (including a $90,000 solar array). We hired him to do the project based on the success and ease of the house project. He performed at the same highest quality on this project as the first.
He worked hand in glove with us on selection of every element, from the metal seam roof, the hardiboard external siding, the concrete floors, the drain system, and the stone floors in the tasting room, etc. He also retained great contractors who executed on a series of complex components, including the need for single phase and three phase electric plugs for various pieces of equipment (press, pump, steam cleaner, electric forklift, etc), a large glycol cooling unit and piping system that was used to temperature control the rooms and the individual tanks, and a large 30kw solar array on the roof.
Mr. Tyler was at the site daily to oversee and manage the construction of every phase of the project. It turned out to be the perfect building for our winery operation. As with the house, after we gave him the sketch, he prepared a detailed budget, and then proceeded
once again to hit it almost exactly, which was again amazing.
In addition to being a top quality custom builder, Mr. Tyler is an absolutely trustworthy and honest individual. We offer him our highest recommendation.

I have worked with Bill Tyler on several projects. He is very detailed oriented and budget conscious.
He builds quality homes and lives in one of his own too.
I would reccommend Bill Tyler for your project.

I am a licensed structural engineer in the Mid-Atlantic Region who has performed design services for many builders/contractors/construction managers for over 30 years and I would not hesitate in recommending William "Bill" Tyler for your next project. Bill has a thorough understanding of the construction process from the conceptual design phase to establishing a realistic budget to the final walk-through with the owner. This understanding results in clear communication with the owner and no surprises. It has been a pleasure to work with Bill Tyler on a number of high end residential and winery related projects.
