Graybach was founded in 2007 by a team of ambitious entrepreneurs who shared a common goal of quality. While working on various construction projects, the founders noticed that the construction world operates unlike many other service industries in that customers are all too often subjected to unreliable, dishonest, and unqualified contractors. Graybach has been established as an alternative to this trend and offers quality general contracting and construction services that focus on the customers’ needs, budgets and schedules. Our customers appreciate our honest, attentive and forthright approach to construction.

About Travis:

Hails proudly from the Hoosier state of Indiana where he grew up on a farm in a small town, about an hour west of Cincinnati. Being raised on the farm taught him not only the value and benefits of hard work, but how to work with his hands at a young age. Travis graduated from the school of hard knocks with a Master’s Degree.

Travis began his industry experience in Residential Construction over 15 years ago. He started as a laborer, then trained as a carpenter, then moved up to Field Superintendent specializing in new home community developments. He literally learned construction from the ground up, no pun intended. He has been involved in hundreds of construction projects to date and now specializes in restaurant construction.

In His Free Time:

Travis enjoys spending time with his wife and 2 sons. He coaches his sons in baseball and basketball and is a volunteer Cub Scout Den Leader. He likes being outside doing a variety of outdoor recreational activities.

Fun Fact:

Before learning construction, Travis used to engrave and set tombstones. You would be surprised to know how many people die of natural causes within a week of their birthday!

Favorite Graybach Project:

Travis’s favorite Graybach project is ZBGB in OTR. This stands out because of the historic architecture of OTR mixed with the modern trends and styles.

About Mike:

Mike was born in Cincinnati and grew up in Colerain Township. He comes from a tight-knit family, the oldest of four. He and his wife, Cynda, live in Harrison Township with their two dogs and enjoy traveling and exploring the outdoors.

He’s a 3rd generation Carpenter/Builder and his passion for construction comes from growing up in the custom home-building industry, where he naturally picked up the carpentry trade and home-building techniques from his dad. At 18 he took his first job as a Carpenter, performing everything from site work and framing to finish carpentry and landscaping. From there he went on to start, own, and operate a small construction company which specialized in remodeling and carpentry. This led him to the great folks at Graybach and the opportunity to join their team.

In His Free Time:

Mike is an outdoorsman, and enjoys traveling, camping, hiking, bike riding, and home projects. Of course, he also enjoys spending time with family.

Fun Fact:

He loves nature and believes in creating a clean and sustainable world for all to enjoy. He’s also color-blind so he doesn’t get to enjoy the colorful fall foliage like his wife…and sometimes comes to a full stop at flashing yellow lights.
