This is not really a debian-arm question --- more a debian-user question.
Here is the answer anyway. Quoting from the "man adduser" manpage:
If the file /usr/local/sbin/adduser.local exists, it will be executed
after the user account has been set up in order to do any local
setup. The arguments passed to adduser.local are:
username uid gid home-directory
So you can just write a shell script to create the directory and put
it in as /usr/local/bin/adduser.local (probably with execute permissions).
