Enjoy browsing, but unless otherwise noted, these houses are private property and closed to the public -- so don't go tromping around uninvited.

JAMES HOWARD FOX (1939-)

He worked for Place Homes in IN, Federated Stores, George Taylor in Cincinnati OH, Bishop Quinn in OK and Bob Oglesby in Highlands NC before starting his own firm in 1969 as one of first Modernist design-build firms in the area. He also taught in an adjunct capacity at Clemson, the University of Oklahoma, and UNC Charlotte. His practice continues both in NC and FL.
