This is Who We Are

Bellingham Bay Builders is a team of real people doing honest work.

We’re framers and fathers. Designers and dancers. Builders and bicyclists. Managers and musicians. We are lovers of the outdoors, our families and our community. We never forget we’re all invested in this place we call home.

Dave BroganFounding Member-Owner, Project Manager, Gaant Chart Guru
After earning his Outdoor Environmental Education degree from Huxley College at Western Washington University, Dave put it to good use as a sea kayak guide and teacher in some of North America’s most wild places. Eventually, he settled on construction as a vocation, and soon became project manager for a local timber frame contractor. In 2004, he and three friends founded Bellingham Bay Builders. Dave handles estimating and project management with a keen eye for timelines and budgets. He’s passionate about high-performance building and continuously studies this modern age of building science.

Ever the outdoors enthusiast, Dave enjoys skiing, sea kayaking, sailing and rock climbing with family and friends. Time at home means dance parties with his daughters, reading in bed as a family and gathering around the table with good food and great friends.
