Ted Sihpol

Owner/Managing Partner

Ted grew up in an 1820's dairy farm in Massachusetts and like it or not, helped restore the house one room at a time, year after year. After graduating from the University of Vermont with an economics degree (so much for pre-med) he spent time on Wall Street before leaving for Connecticut and being asked to take over a friends failing renovation project. He went on to get his Home Improvement License and never looked back, building a reputation one project at a time. Outside of work, Ted has enjoyed coaching his two boys and spending time on the beach with his wife Rhonda. We also make a point of giving back to the community through local charities like the New Canaan Food Bank and New Canaan Scholarship Foundation and sponsoring lacrosse and football teams.

Our Team

Carpentry & Finish Work

Our team provides our clients with the level of service and attention to detail they expect. Our team earned their stripes the old fashioned way - they started hauling materials and cleaning up. After years of coming up through the ranks they earned the privilege of working on some of the most exclusive properties in Fairfield County & that's where I found them. We now leverage those years of experience and skill to ensure your project is finished with the pride, dedication and lasting quality you expect. Our team of exceptional subcontractors provide support to my group who then handle the finish details - because that's where we excel and can ensure the details that set us apart are most evident.

The Girls

Moral Support & Loving Slobber

Hammer & Bourbon can't be on site with us all the time, but they strive to provide exceptional home office support. They have years worth of canine experience and are always willing to lend a helping paw or two.

Ted's work is top notch. His attention to detail is one of his greatest strengths. He worked on our home is if it were his own: an approach that not only covers the craftsmanship, but also minimizes the disruption that construction creates in a household with small children. We chose not to hire an expensive internal decorator and found that Ted's decorative and design advice yielded very attractive results. It is rare that you find a college educated, conscientious contractor whose morals and ethics prohibit anything less than exacting quality and superior service.
