Tyler  was born in the small town of Ellsworth, Minnesota.  He grew up working in his parents' butcher shop that they have owned and operated for over 30 years.  After graduating high school, Tyler moved to Brookings, SD to attend South Dakota State University where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences Degree in Entrepreneurial Studies, and a minor in Marketing.  During college he worked for a company that specialized in basement water proofing. Although the work was tough, he saw an opportunity for success.  During his senior year, he and his business partner, Ethan Sandstrom, formed C and S Construction, LLC. In his free time, Tyler enjoys hunting almost anything, riding 4 wheeler, going to the lake with his family and friends, and building custom wood furniture in his garage. 


Ethan was born and raised on a small hobby farm in Ellsworth, Wisconsin by his parents Mark and Jennifer Sandstrom.  Since he was a kid, he has always enjoyed being outdoors.  At the age of twelve he started working on a neighboring dairy farm where he continued to work for the next seven years.  Working on a farm gave Ethan a wide range of skills that he is able to utilize in his current business.  During high school Ethan and his dad Mark restored a 1977 F-150 and ever since then he has a soft spot for old Fords. After high school he moved to Brookings, South Dakota where he graduated from South Dakota State University with a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences Degree in Entrepreneurial Studies with Economics and Marketing minors.  Throughout college he worked on a hog farm by Flandreau, SD. He also worked for a basement construction company with Tyler Chapa where the two saw an opportunity to branch out on their own.  Ethan enjoys hunting, riding dirt bike, running, working on cars and snowboarding in his free time.

The Creation of C and S Construction, LLC

C and S Construction was founded by Tyler C and Ethan S after they completed their radon classes and became certified for Radon Measurement and Radon Testing at the University of Minnesota.  C and S is one of the only companies in Eastern South Dakota that is certified through the NRPP to perform radon testing and measurement.  Being certified means that they have to hold themselves to a very high standard in all their mitigation systems in order to keep their licenses. C and S strives to bring radon levels in customers' houses to the lowest possible number.  This ensures that the residents will not have to worry about the negative affects of radon in their home.  C and S Construction also does a variety of other basement related construction such as interior drain tile, egress window installation, patching wall cracks, and various other handy man services. We serve the areas of Brookings, Watertown, Sioux Falls South Dakota and Marshall Minnesota.
