Are there any Canadian Eichlers?

My house is very Eichler like. It is an H shape with flat roof on one end,
then a low pitched assymmetrical roof on the rest.

I live in Toronto Canada. I see that there are some eichlers in New York,
so that's pretty close. Are there any in Canada?

Hi,

I'm a misplaced Canadian myself--I lived in Toronto for almost 15 years before moving to California. I'd be interested in knowing whereabouts in Toronto your house is located--offhand I can't think of anything I saw that was mid-century except some custom homes off Spadina in Forest Hil...

In response to your question, I do not believe Eichler built any homes outside of the US. However, other builders were similarly influenced so you will find non-Eichler midcentury modern homes elsewhere. I recall someone in BC indicating some time back they had a home with Eichleresque characteristics.

Cheers.
Jake

wandering thru the internet via google I found a few pics of a very Eichler like home in the UK-d**n I don't remember the URL tho-I think there was mention elsewhere on here or maybe lottalivin.com.

Wishing for modern home.

Thanks for your response. I live in Mississauga. There are quite a few
architect designed 60's bungalows here. There is one other similar to mine, and quite a few have been showing up on design shows now that
we're "fashionable" again. My house could very well have been built from
a U.S. plan that the builder purchased. It was designed not to have a basement, but was adapted for the original purchaser to incorporate one.
You wouln't think to look at the house that there was a basement under it
because it is right at grade level. We bought this house in 1987 immediately after a trip to Brentwood California!

I would love to know your approximate Mississauga whereabouts so I can do a driving tour of some Midcentury Homes out there... I only know of Midcentury homes in Don Mills (Too expensive) and in the Lawrence Midland Area (too Scarborough).

Thanks! Jane

no. Eichler never built homes in Canada, eh. :wink:
