John Elian

Project Manager

John, who grew up in New Jersey, is passionate about craftsmanship. As a working chef, when he was younger, he discovered that quality came from detailed preparation, hard work, and good taste.

18 years of success as a carpenter is the result of the same commitment to craftsmanship. John loves to build an owner’s vision for their home. The opportunity to collaborate with the 4 Forty Four team to create the home of someone’s dreams is a great privilege. The culture of the company encourages and delivers excellence.

John lives with his wife Laurie in Lenoir. He is involved in hunger and homeless ministries, and when he is not working you will probably find him on some remote mountain stream, chasing trout.
