Design for Living: Eichler Homes (Chronicle Books, 1995) presents mid-century mass-produced houses by Joseph Eichler, American home builder. The book has been compiled by Jerry Ditto, Lanning Stern, Marvin Wax, and Sally B. Woodbridge.
More than a modern-day success story, Joseph Eichler changed the face of American architecture by helping to create the ultimate, affordable family home. With the help of architect Bob Anshen, Eichler found a way to mass-produce affordable, practical homes with a designer feel. Based on numerous models, each under $10,000, the homes began to sell wildly in Northern California. As the demand grew, so did the houses, and soon they included four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a family room, as well as Eichler’s signature glass walls, post-and-beam structures, and front door atriums.
