Roger McLellon and his wife Debbie built their first spec house in 1984. That home sold quickly and launched a business that has allowed them to build hundreds of custom homes, delight new homeowners across the Peninsula, and make many lifelong friends along the way. When building a home, Roger places emphasis on family areas. Large kitchens with full pantries, useful family rooms and large, well-lighted living areas are hallmarks of his homes. While he specializes in colonial and traditional homes, Roger incorporates many contemporary features, such as large closets, full amenities and luxurious master bathrooms into his designs. He has participated in 13 area ?Parade of Homes,? winning numerous awards in this annual event. Roger is a member and leader of many professional associations. He has been a member of the National Association of Homebuilders Board of Directors, a member of the Peninsula Housing and Builders Association (PHBA) since 1984, and a member of its board of directors since 1986. Roger was president of the PHBA in 1994 and named its Builder of the Year in both 1996 and 2002. An active member of the community, Roger has served as site coordinator for the Poquoson Kids Island project, a Bethel Baptist Church Building Committee member, was a member of the Youth Focus Gathering of Men Board of Directors, and is an annual sponsor of the Back River Youth Sports program. He is also a strong supporter of the International Cooperating Ministries, an organization dedicated to building and nurturing churches world wide, and Orphan Helpers, which is dedicated to service and ministering to the physical and spiritual needs of orphaned, abandoned and incarcerated youth and children and the YMCA. Roger majored in Architectural and Building Construction. He is married with three children and resides in Poquoson, Virginia.
