Living in the Bay Area has proven purchasing (or even renting) a decent sized home to be a challenge. Chris is really into the Eichler style homes (who isn't??) and he's gotten me really into it too! There are so many original Eichlers all over the Bay Area, especially around where we live, we just need to get our hands on one for ourselves! I've been perusing the web, mostly Houzz.com, for elements of my dream home. Here are some Eichler characteristics I want, love and need. Hopefully one day we'll have an Eichler of our own.
