About Sound Building Systems

Sound Building Systems, Inc. is a family-run company operating in Kitsap, Mason, Clallam and Jefferson counties. Founded by Rick Welter in 1996, the business moved from Kingston to Port Ludlow in 2001. Rick has been building post frame buildings since 1975, starting in Pennsylvania where he became a crew foreman at the age of 19. In 1981 he moved to Washington state, continuing in the business of constructing pole buildings.

SBS builds primarily residential garages, but we also construct shops, barns, hangars, horse arenas, carports, and at special request commercial buildings. Our goal is to provide quality craftsmanship and customer satisfaction. We treat every customer personally and every project is unique; we want you to be happy with the process and the product, during construction and after project completion. Much of our business is by referral.

Whether you want a simple pole building with just a roof or a full fledged two-story pole building, Sound Building Systems is ready to help.

The Building Process

SBS has over 40 years professional construction experience and has provided satisfied clients all sizes of buildings using their design input. We then translate your ideas into reality with county approved plans drawn up by our engineer.

SBS knows the codes for all four of the counties we build in and know what it takes to expedite the building process.

You have your choice of colors in the metal siding and style of metal used.
