HOUSES AND REAL ESTATE PROJECTS
Roger oversees workers clearing the way for a swimming pool at his
40-unit apartment-house in the Hancock district of LA, during late 1972
When Roger returned to Kentucky in 1978, he purchased this historic mansion known as Spring Station, and restored it to its original
splendor. Spring Station dates back to 1791 and was used as a fort to protect early settlers from Indian attacks.
Roger lived there from 1989-1999, and rebuilt it during that time after wildfires destroyed it.
Roger still owns the home and leases it out; the TV show "Nip/Tuck" filmed several scenes there in 2004.

In the last three years, he completely restored it and added an infinity edge pool to the back.

LATEST DEVELOPMENT - HOLLYWOOD HILLS
Roger worked tirelessly around the clock for eight years to bring this development to fruition. He explained that, "It is the result of a single creative vision that took over 25,000 tons of concrete and over 100 miles of steel to bring dream to reality." Now complete, the property holds several 5,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art homes with swimming pools, yards (both rarities in homes in the Hollywood Hills due to space limitations,) along with 12' walls of glass inside to take in the magnificent Los Angeles skyline.
Cutting-edge architecture and design...and a breathtaking view of the LA skyline!
Another masterpiece of design...with glass from floor to ceiling, and stairs that seem suspended in mid air!
