We’ve known each other since “diaper” as we say. Growing up found us getting into creative mischief together! It’s debatable how this always happened (Steve) generally got the “let’s just do it” approach and (Matt) was found following or “bailing” them out. Through the years we’ve found ourselves traveling down different paths in life, but one thing always remained the same… Our friendship and ability to call one another for help at anytime.
Matt, continue to find his passion in healthcare and creating thing with his hand (furniture & much more)! Steve, on the other hand found his passion in creating, growing, and managing businesses across different industries. Through the years the two continued to see their lives change. Each getting married and starting families of their own. Both graduating from Wichita State, and continuing to stay in touch through the years.
How did it start? Well, that’s the interesting part… As mentioned above Steve is kind of a risk taker by nature and started his first business in 2012 called BattleStations Gaming Inc. Over, the first few years the two would meet and Matt would mention doing a “construction business”. Matt, would generally come back to the same dilemma. The “what if” problem(s). Over these talks Steve continued to encourage Matt to take the “chance” and in 2015 Tyler Home LLC was started.
How did we get involved together then? Well, in 2016 Steve made the tough decision to close BattleStations Gaming Inc. and in doing so started looking to what’s next (that’s an entire story in itself). Matt, at the time mentioned to Steve. “Why don’t we grow this thing together?” Steve, first thinking Matt lost it. Mainly because if you’ve met the two of us, Steve (guy writing this). You know that Steve is very low on the construction “handiness” side. However, as you’ve guessed we are working together again. Just took us 30 years to get here and one thing continues to be the same or ability to find ourselves getting involved in “creative mischief”.
