Our Journey

Destination: Eichler

The beginnings of our journey began in the fall of 2012. We were quite happy with our 70’s era Ranch-style home:

We had tackled a few home improvement projects (such as hardwood flooring, a ton of painting, and a bathroom remodel), determined to give the house “our style.” It was located in a great neighborhood and nearby to a huge park.

But then we happened upon this mid-century marvel at an Open House, just a few miles from our current home:

Wow. An Eichler home; 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, plus a bonus room and light-filled atrium. All in our hometown, same school district, and updated to meet the modern family’s needs.

All we could think was, how do we get our hands on one of those?!

And so it began...
