"We would like to say thank you to God, Dwellings, and Blackwood for providing a home for our family. Our home will always be a blessing to our family. You are not just friends to us but family as well." —Valladarez Family "We will never have enough words to thank you Blackwood Builders for everything you did for us. You truly made such a huge impact in our family." —Turcios Family "We are just so thankful for each of you who were part of building our beautiful home. Thank you for making our time with you such a great experience…We will always have you in our hearts." —Landaverde Family Messages from Honduras "Giving Back Is in Our DNA" That commitment to improving people's lives extends beyond the business. Dwellings Now represents one bright star in a constellation of partnerships they've built with nonprofits improving lives in local communities—Seattle Children's Hospital, New Beginnings, WELD Seattle, and Rampathon to name a few. "Being involved in charities is a cornerstone of who we are. It's in the DNA of our culture. We believe strongly in giving back after everything we've been blessed with. We look for partners housing people, fighting homelessness, combatting human trafficking, and preventing domestic violence." That spirit of giving back is one of the reasons why Trevor joined MBAKS' Board of Directors in 2021, and why he has taken on the role of second vice president in the Executive Committee this year. Trevor wants to bring his company's expertise and passion for homebuilding to the whole of the industry. Whether they're building in Honduras or Seattle, that drive to give back—by building homes, partnerships, and communities—is what makes Blackwood Builders Group stand apart. sustainability. When they first started, one of their earliest decisions was joining Built Green, MBAKS' green building certification program. 4-Star certification for all projects was a day-one goal. "Starting at that level was important because it prepared us for the new energy codes most builders were behind on. Our homes use less energy, which is better for buyers, their neighbors, our communities, and all Seattle residents." It's a top priority to build high-quality and sustainable housing not only in the Seattle area but around the world. TREVOR JOHNSON, CEO Blackwood Builders Group 48 master BUILDER | SPRING 2022
