- Active builder member of the Kitsap Building Association
- Demonstrates leadership within the Kitsap County community
- Promotes education of the construction trades

Disney Gives Back
From firsthand experience, Bob Disney knows no one is immune to having their share of ups and downs. There are few moments more cherished than experiencing the relief of having someone extend their hand to help pick you up when you’re down.
This empathy has been the driving force behind Disney’s efforts to reach out to the community and extend a hand when possible.
When a rare tornado hit our small community here in Port Orchard at the end of last year, it was nothing short of devastating. The tornado was reportedly the strongest to hit Washington State in 32 years. The rogue weather system wreaked havoc on homes and families, leaving behind damaged property and emotional scars. Nearly 500 properties suffered structural damage. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured.
Still, Port Orchard was left in ruins. Roofs were torn off houses, carports caved in, and wreckage was strewn everywhere. The view from the locals’ perspective looked rather grim, especially considering the lack of options to turn to for humanitarian aid.
At that time, Bob Disney mobilized a team of volunteers to do a big cleanup of the neighborhood, donating time, energy and resources to helping neighbors get back on their feet. Disney also sponsored the disposal of the aftermath.
High Quality Home Building
Of course, beyond striving to be a good neighbor, the title of Builder of the Year must be backed by top quality craftsmanship. Disney & Associates is committed to building luxury, semi-custom homes without delivering anything less than the best.
Disney’s homes are built to anticipate changing circumstances in the years ahead. The primarily Rambler-style homes are designed to accommodate people who want to buy a house in their youth and transition both gracefully and comfortably into their older years without having to worry about the challenge of stairs or whether or not the hallways will be wide enough to access with a wheelchair.
Disney & Associates has created high-value dream home templates, which can be fully customized to suit the needs and wishes of each potential homeowner. Despite being built as spec homes, the designs are all unique, varying largely in size, location, finishing style, view, and more. Disney Homes developments are carefully mapped out in some of the most prime real estate locations that Kitsap County has to offer, featuring large lots and gorgeous views.
The most recent development still under way is known as The Ridge at Buck Lake in Hansville, featuring a knock-out panorama of the Olympics and Cascades as well as Puget Sound views. Due to recent updates in zoning laws, it is one of the only housing developments left in Kitsap county offering lots sized from a half acre to over an acre. These large lots at The Ridge at Buck Lake allow room to build single-story houses from 1800 to 2700 square feet as well as multiple garages and even an RV garage. Check out this video of the development’s site to see just how stunning it really is.
