Proudly serving Whatcom, Skagit and San Juan Counties since 1997


We are B-1 BUILDERS INC., a general contracting company based in North Whatcom County, specializing in large and small scale framing projects for homeowners and builders, with forays into remodeling (which is how we got our start), additions, decks, speculation building, siding and steel construction.

Reid & Corrine Patterson, Owners of B1 BuildersMy name is Reid Patterson. My wife, Corrine and I married right out of high school in 1975 and within a year had purchased a wreck of a home, remodeled it, bought another, remodeled it and so on. But, it wasn't until the mid-90s that we chose to turn our hobby into our vocation. We dove headlong into the world of construction. I was a superintendent for a mid-sized contractor in Utah when we elected to move, sight unseen, to beautiful Bellingham, Washington in 1997 with a relocating construction company. Within a year, we launched B-1 BUILDERS INC. (we aim to "be one" with your building needs) and have been busy ever since.

Through the years, the majority of our work has come via word of mouth. This is due, we believe, to our insistence that each of our employees and/or subs maintain the exacting standards of excellence and perfection that we demand of ourselves.

Our philosophy is this: We are building someone's home, where there will be memories, meals, laughter, and love shared. How can anything less than our best be given? To us, it is a great honor.

As we've grown and delved into larger commercial projects, we've always kept that same sense of excitement and purpose... to construct and build that which will house the hopes and dreams of its designers and occupants.

Let us visit with you and work to help bring your dream into reality.
It will be our honor.
