Paul Kocharhook

Paul loves helping people make lasting changes to their homes, impacting not only their daily lives, but allowing for continual growth. And over more than 30 years in the construction business, he has shown a commitment to his own growth—starting as a laborer working for his grandfather (who was a general contractor), becoming a general contractor himself, and eventually launching his own business.

Paul’s longtime dedication to eco-friendly and healthy building practices has distinguished Pathway within the industry, and he has made ongoing education a core principle for his firm.

As a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS), Paul is passionate about serving the increasing population of Seattle-area residents who want to remain in their homes for as long as possible. He is also a Master Certified Green Professional (MCGP), a Certified Graduate Remodeler (CGR), a Certified Renovator (for lead removal), and recently completed “Passivhaus” training for energy-efficient building.

A regular speaker at conferences across the country, Paul is active with the Master Builders Association and serves as an American Lung Association Master Home Environmentalist (MHE) volunteer. He and Tracy, his wife of 23 years, live in Maple Valley; they have one son in college and another in high school. Paul enjoys traveling, working in the yard, and playing golf and basketball.
