FA Design Build and Flooring America are locally owned and operated by the Menefee family. The flooring business began in 1979, and Rob launched FA Design Build in 2004 based on his vision of providing flooring clients with full-service remodeling. Today, FA Design Build is a design build firm specializing in interior residential remodeling and serving clients throughout Northern Virginia. Rob’s management track record and more than 20 years of experience in the local flooring and construction industries ensure the company’s growth and commitment to customer service.
Rob takes a proactive approach to serving his community by supporting the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and organizing golf outings benefiting Youth for Tomorrow, a Johns Hopkins program providing long-term housing for young cancer patients. His love of sports extends to coaching, for the baseball team at Flint Hill School, and playing golf, most frequently at Belle Haven Country Club in Alexandria. Born and raised in Fairfax City, Rob attended Fairfax High School and graduated from Mary Washington University. He and his wife Mari have three daughters.
Melissa loves to share her energy, knowledge of design, and tenacity to work through all design concerns on every project.

Nate is continuing his family legacy of home design and construction. With a professional background in design, planning, and an extensive knowledge of all things construction, Nate loves helping his clients turn their homes into more livable and enjoyable spaces.

Nate grew up in Fairfax County, one of 5 kids. He loves cars, coffee, and a good steak.

Edwin loves spending time outdoors hiking, camping, hanging out at the beach and is a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan.
