Eichler Homes

With Christmas around the corner I am getting really excited to see my extended family in a few weeks. We are spending Christmas eve at my "Nani's" (grandmother) home in Northern California.  Ever since I can remember I've always looooved her home. It's a classic mid-century design and she's managed to hold on to a lot of the original furniture pieces inside.  It's what we call an "Eichler Home."  Joseph Eichler is known as one of the most influential builders of modern homes between the 1950s-1970s.  He brought modern architecture to middle-class Americans through his subdivisions in Northern California and greater Los Angeles.  I would love to get my hands on one of these some day....
