Ryan McLellan has been pursuing his vision of custom home building most of his life, with several years of hands-on experience and later obtaining his Bachelors Degree in Construction Management from the University of Florida. After relocating to the Asheville area in 1998, Ryan started Copperwood Builders, which was founded on building quality relationships with his customers, architects, developers, and subcontractors. By working with each client personally, and addressing their individual needs he is able to provide a truly “custom crafted home” with distinctive style, quality craftsmanship, and excellent customer relations. His projects include Mountain Rustic Craftsman, Traditional Arts and Crafts, and most recently Cottage Court designs in the Black Mountain area. Ryan served as the President of the Asheville Home Builders Association in 2005 and is a former Parade of Homes Gold Winner, Realtors Choice Winner and recipient of the Craftsman Award. His works have been published in Fine Home Building and Carolina Home and Garden magazines. He and his wife Kelly reside in Black Mountain with their two children, Gray and Willa.
