One of the reasons I haven’t posted much over the last few months is that my family moved. We packed up our home and moved south down the Penninsula. It was a major job – and as you can imagine – it took a lot of time. The new house is still not fully together – my mills are not organized and there’s still stuff in boxes, but it’s coming along nicely and I’m trying to get back in the swing of things.
I thought readers of the blog might be interested in the house. It is a 1957 Eichler home. For those unfamiliar with Eichler, he was a prominent mid-century developer in California. His homes featured post and beam construction, walls of glass, minimal design, atriums, and other architectural touches that came to define “California living”. The homes are not particularly fancy, but for those wanting clean lines and a connection to the outdoors, they can’t be beat. My house doesn’t have an atrium, but it does have walls of glass which lead to the backyard. I’ll post a few photos today and add info as time goes on.
