That you can see the extent of an Eichler neighborhood from the sky by looking at the roof color?

At least in our area the Eichlers have lighter colored roofs that the surrounding homes.

It must be strange to happen across all of these houses with holes in their roofs, if you havent heard about Eichlers!

If you click on Larry's neighborhood on this link, our roofs look red instead of white.

If you move the pointer over a group of red dots and it turns into a hand, you can see a close-up of your street.

Yes indeed, Randy, I see my house on your map! I was wondering why your guys were painting a red dot up there ;)

Now, if you could somehow combine your red-dot map with the google satellite image, that would be beyond cool!

Leslie, thanks for the good words!
