i wanna eichler





Curtis and I dream of living in an Eichler-ish house, mostly for the architecture--but if the California address came with, we wouldn't complain. Also, he could be Mr. Incredible, I could be the Mrs....

Just kidding, though truth be told, I liked "The Incredibles" in part because of the architectural style guide it employed. It was also just a cute movie.

I've spent way too much time looking at Eichler homes that I a) can't afford, and b) can't afford. And did I mention that I live in Utah with no plans to move anytime soon, let alone purchase a cool house? But it's addicting. The Internet is crawling with these things. In fact, entire realty teams are dedicated to serving Eichler-only clientele. (See here and here.) I was totally unaware of this, though it makes sense.

I like to poke around on this site, this site and this site.

I've been stoked on Eichlers for a while now. Surprisingly I seen a few of them on different HGTV shows, and they didn't even jack them over.

Did you know that the house/neighborhood Lane lived in in Palo Alto was Eichler designed?

No, but looking back, it figures.

That house reminds me of Aunt Sandy's old house, and Aunt Sandy's old house reminds me of an Eichler.
