Ted Marrs


Ted Marrs spent the first thirteen years of his construction career working in the Washington, DC area for a company that did work for the Joint Chiefs of Staff offices at the Pentagon, corporate offices for Anheuser-Busch, the Paul Mellon office suites, and a custom residence for a client in Georgetown. Ted joined Abrahamse & Company Builders in 1995 when his family moved permanently to their farm in central Virginia.

Ted began making a positive impact on Abrahamse & Company as a supervisor. He later became a Project Manager and ultimately the president and a part owner of the company. What Ted loves best about his work is the diversity of projects and people: “We don’t do the same thing all of the time. The people here are open-minded and willing to explore new ideas. We work as a team.” Ted has settled into his management role with the company and enjoys the challenges that come with it.

Ted especially likes managing residential projects. Several of his favorite projects are featured on the Abrahamse & Company website, among which are the Blue Ridge Residence, a contemporary glass and steel structure designed by Voorsanger Associates of New York City and the Stoney Point Residence, which combines geo-thermal heat pumps, radiant floors, foamed-in-place insulation, highly efficient windows, a zinc roof, and a stucco exterior to create a classy and sustainable, energy-efficient home. With his interest in alternative architecture, Ted endeavors to build shelter that will meet the challenges of the future.

Ted relishes time spent on his farm with his wife, Caroline, and two sons Franklin and Taylor Lee. He also enjoys gardening, hunting, and fishing.
