We're busy bees between working on the living room and kitchen/dining room and holding our day jobs. Recently, Jan Michael traveled to San Francisco for work and while he was there he managed to sneak away for a few hours to take a mini road trip to various Eichler tract houses. And we thought we'd share the photos for a little inspiration. His four-hour trek to the tracts included homes in San Jose, Saratoga, Cupertino, Sunnyvale, Los Altos, Portola Valley and Palo Alto. Driving through the neighborhoods was like some sort of surreal maze. What we mid-westerners only see in magazines, architectural blogs and VW commercials is served up in the thousands there—a ballpark of 10,000+ in the Bay Area. Typically, when we see Eichler homes, it's in the context of a magazine article and they're beautifully staged to look clean, sleek, and really big. But in reality, these homes are roughly 1,100 to 2,000 square feet. Proves that good design doesn't need a ton of space to feel like a ton.
