About Billy

Billy's Personal Profile:
          As the president and owner, Billy Selset, is a Pacific Northwest product. He grew up in Bellevue on the shores of Lake Sammamish and was educated in the Bellevue School District. After graduating from Interlake High school, he moved on to Ellensburg to attend Central Washington University where he subsequently graduated with a teaching degree in History and Special Education. Following a three-year period of teaching in Yakima, Billy moved with his wife back to the Puget Sound Area and an atmosphere of family and comfort. Throughout all this Billy was involved in the construction industry. From a young age, he learned what working with your hands and mind can accomplish. Whether it was working for other companies and contractors or remodeling his own homes, he found the construction industry increasingly fascinating as well as a good fit in terms of satisfaction and growth. (Alas, a formal career in teaching was not to be.)

Upon returning to the Puget Sound Area, Billy went to work for a custom home builder, MacPherson Construction & Design, where he was exposed to high levels of craftsmanship and customer expectations. These are cornerstones in his building philosophy and continue to resonate in his own business today. After refining his skills of customer relationships and quality workmanship, he set out on his own and formed William's Building Company, Inc. in 1996. Following three years as new startup, and a child on the way, an opportunity to work with and serve the low-income housing population in Seattle presented itself. Billy took a hiatus to work with a non-profit housing provider. There, he renovated housing units and provided clean, new living spaces for individuals and their families. Although rewarding, he missed the opportunity and challenge of running oneís own company full-time. Following a parting of philosophies, Billy dedicated himself to managing and growing Williamís Building Company, Inc.

As the challenges and rewards of his family with two young children help to define his life, Billy continues to refine and adapt so that he is able to be an effective individual, family man and business developer.
