From Superman on Broadway by Bob Holiday and Chuck Harter:

There are always ups and downs in any actor's career, and I had enjoyed a mostly successful 20 year stint as a performer. There had been many moments of glory with the pinacle being my two years as Superman. The uncertainty of making a living in show business began to affect me.

Around 1973-74, I traveled to a small town in Pennsylvania called Hawley. I loved the area, the atmosphere and the people. I bought some land and got involved with a real estate firm. I found that I really enjoyed working with people, meeting people and being creative in this new field. It was also great to be in control of my own destiny.
After a while, I decided to start my own business and formed Bob Holiday Homes [eventually renamed "Bob Holiday Custom Homes, LLC"]. I found that I had a real knack for house design, and I found much personal satisfaction and happiness. I didn't miss the show business life, and felt that I was making a great fresh start.

Just two hours west of New York City in the famed Pocono Mountain resort region is the quaint town of Hawley, Pennsylvania. Increasingly popular as a weekend and vacation destination, Hawley is famous for its old-fashioned charm and for Lake Wallenpaupack, which offers such recreational activities as fishing, swimming, boating, and—in winter—snowmobiling.

From 1975 through 2008, Bob Holiday Custom Homes, LLC designed and building luxury vacation homes and year-round residences in and around the Hawley area. Many Bob Holiday Custom Homes have been built right on the shores of Lake Wallenpaupack.

Bob retired from building homes at the end of 2008. Even after he retired, past customers would call to see if he could enhance their Bob Holiday Custom Home with their newest ideas. People who'd bought from Bob in the past were eager to have him help with a remodel.

If Bob ever felt down about anything, which wasn't often, someone would remind him that he was one of the few people in this country who could boast of not one, but two successful careers. It usually managed to brighten Bob's day!
