M-M: where did you go? Lotta Living and ModCom sites are down. I am getting a southern rocker dude, instead. not that it's a bad thing, though.

nevermind, your server glitch is over!

Joe B:

What is up with http://www.rummerhomes.com? I was hoping to learn more about Oregon modern homes!

The response from the two Rummer stories I wrote for the Eichler Network last fall has been great. In fact, I have had to delay launching the Rummer site in order to focus on other modern web sites dedicated to the greater Portland area, due to launch in the next few weeks, which will contain mid-century modern real estate and some Rummer stuff.

Look for the official Rummer site to roll out this fall. If you didn't get a chance to read the Rummer stories, here's this link...

Thank you for the interest.

Hey Joe,

Thanks for the heads up - our service provider was upgrading the server to a better faster one... in the process there were a few glitches - still having some issues with the gallery function... arg...

thanks again.

Go to lottaliving.com and click on the gallery, residential gallery, eichler homes, select Sacramento and/or Palo Alto and Concord. There is a pic of a rare 'traditional looking' Eichler in the Sacto gallery. And some well kept ones in the Concord one as well as some sadly obliterated homes and an outrageous glow in the dark Eichler. Enjoy....

Wishing for modern home.

I'm baffled by some of the pictures in your galleries, m-m, nice as your site is. To wit:

1. The houses listed as Palo Alto, Los Arboles adjacent are in Sunnyvale, from what I can see -- the first three certainly are not in Palo Alto;
2. Many of the images listed as Eichler built homes for San Francisco (Diamond Heights) are absolutely not Eichler built -- images 2, 4, and 10-16 are clearly not Eichlers and not even post and beam construction

Sorry to be a nit-picker, you have a very nice site, but the above errors should be corrected.

The Palo Alto pics might be in the wrong city-I might have got the images mixed up-I tried to take a pic of the street name sign before snapping pics so I could remember correctly. The San Francisco pics locations were based on an inquiry I made on this discussion forum 2/15/02 as to their locations-'David' replied later that day and stated "The Eichlers start on the 1000 block of Duncan Street and go down (west) to Amber, Turquoise, one side of Cameo, Amethist (sp) and maybe one more."
There might have been pics take on the 'wrong' side of Cameo and 'maybe one more' might have been the non Eichler part of the neighborhood.

Speaking of the Sacramento Eichlers....does anyone know why there is a street named "Eichler" a couple of blocks away from the actual Eichler homes....yet NO Eichlers on "Eichler" street?

maybe Eichler had the land, but didn't develop it.

Speaking of things named Eichler, in Beaverton, Oregon there is a Rummer subdivision of 30 homes named Menlo Park (as you may know, Rummers were built from Eichler plans in the 60s-70s). A couple blocks away is Eichler Park.

I am offering this gallery as a free service for other modern fans to share their images, but can't always control the content or organization.

Being that it is a self-controlled gallery... everyone is responsible for their own picture posts.

I have posted rules. Each picture is supposed to be individually labeled as to what it is, location and who posted it. rules are posted here. But policing those policies is another thing... (right now, Lotta Living is a total off hours, volunteer project, labor of love of mine)

That is why there is a public comment feature to the gallery!!! :)

If you have more information about an image or would like to correct the information about an image - there is a feature where you can make a public comment - So if a home is not from where it says it is - click on the image to get to the detail page and just post a comment.

also if anyone has posted a picture and wants to add more information about it - that's a good way to do that as well...

Ruth,

This is probably not what you asked about but, there is an Eichler St (Dr?) in Sunnyvale (with Eichler homes on it). /Gloria

Sorry, I meant no offense and have taken your suggestion to post comments to each picture that is incorrect. But that seems to only add to the "noise" and not improve the signal-to-noise so well, so perhaps you may have to make a judgement about what others post on your site, and even edit clearly incorrect material. If not, I think it leaves the casual browser at risk of confusion.

The 2 story Eichlers (remodeled-good or bad) are on Toyon Pl. off of Middelfield Rd. and according to the Gousha Chek Chart Mid San Francisco Peninsula road map it shows that is in Palo Alto.

Sorry, I live right next to Toyon Place in Palo Alto, and the two houses with two-story additions pictured in the gallery are not on this street. There is a Toyon Place in Sunnyvale also, perhaps that is where the Eichlers pictured are located. Picture 2 in the same section that you contributed on LottaLiving's Eichler gallery for Palo Alto, etc. has been commented on by its owner, Leslie, who also posts here. She says she wishes her house was in Palo Alto. But it is in Sunnyvale, as are the rest in this gallery. This is going to devolve into a typical internet argument to those who don't live in the area, but my eyes don't deceive me (and if necessary I'll take pictures of Toyon Place in Palo Alto to prove it) and it's pretty disconcerting to have someone from SoCal contradict what we live next to every day. Btw, Palo Alto has got one whole city, Mountain View, between it and Sunnyvale. Please consider correcting the gallery, it shouldn't matter to you that much but maybe the owners of the homes pictured (like Leslie) would appreciate it -- and maybe homeowners on Toyon Place in Palo Alto :-)

thanks for the notes tom... i would eventually like to do periodic house cleaning... but as many of the pictures come from areas where i have no knowledge, yours and other public comments will be especially helpful when i clean. :)
