Founder & Principal
Born and raised in Western Colorado, Roger has a BA in Business Management and started at the bottom working in the construction industry over 30 years ago. In the early 90s he started his own company with a partner and in the mid-90s went on his own and founded Copper Creek Homes.
Roger is involved with and oversees every project and his 30+ years of experience gives him the knowledge to guide you and his team through the most challenging projects. His integrity and commitment to building quality custom homes creates relationships that last long after the project is complete.
Roger spent 19 year as a professional ski patrolman at Crested Butte Mountain, has worked as a fly fishing and hunting guide. Today, he enjoys skiing, fishing and hunting in the great outdoors of Colorado with his wife, Teresa and their adorable black labs, Bella and Pancho.
Tyler was born in Crested Butte in 1978 and can boast a nail-driving resume dating to 1981 – the Christmas he got his first hammer.
Working summers for his father, a custom home contractor, he learned all aspects of the residential building trade. After attending the construction management program at C.S.U., he returned to Crested Butte and worked for several home builders. Meeting Roger in 2009, he has remained with Copper Creek and considers himself fortunate to have been closely involved with constructing some of Crested Butte’s finest homes. His extensive experience has helped Tyler recognize professional quality workmanship in all phases of the building process – from home siting and plan drawing to final trim and closing. He prides himself on practicing and demanding the highest quality craftsmanship on Copper Creek projects.
Tyler met his wife, Casey at C.S.U., and they now have two boys-a three year old and a five year old, hammer-wielding, builders-in-training.
They enjoy snowboarding, mountain biking, fishing, and camping together in their “free time” – and Tyler looks forward to bow-hunting in the fall.
