Who We Are
 
  ROGER H. ALGIE
Owner 
Principal Designer/Consultant

Roger has more than 35 years experience in the commercial and residential design and construction industry.  In that time he's acted as principal designer, design and permit drawing team leader, project coordinator, tendering, and project manager on a variety of projects.

For the last 25 years, Roger has specialized in single and multiple family residential dwellings, with a special interest in low energy/environmentally sustainable housing. In fact, his work has been specifically reflected in the R2000 program sponsored by the Canadian government. 

This attention to energy conscious housing has given him expertise not just in Architectural design, but also in the state-of-the-art Mechanical and Electrical design and water and waste reduction. 

This work in the low energy field has led him into the related area of low pollution/hyper-susceptible housing, and he has been involved in the design and construction of a number of projects for hypersensitive families.

Roger formed Just Homes in 1984 to fulfill a long-time personal goal of extending his services to the custom residential market.  He has extensive experience in the architectural vernacular of environmentally sustainable buildings, and also in the often-sensitive dealings with local building and zoning regulations.
