eichler inspiration in the desert

June 6, 2016


On our recent spring trip to Palm Springs, we decided to visit Kud Properties‘ Desert Eichlers.  In case you hadn’t heard of them, these are entirely new homes based on Eichler floor plans, not exact replicas, but Eichlers re-imagined for today in the context of the California desert.  We toured the two newest models:  a flat-roof, atrium model, and this spectacular double A-frame.  There are plenty of images of these homes, so I’ll share just a few highlights here… highlights that I might, you know, borrow for a future project.

Our house is featured on MidCenturyHome today!  Head over for the full interview, and some never-before-seen shots of our interior (frantically shot by me while avoiding views of our backyard construction).  I’ve been following this site for a while now, and it’s a great place to read about mid century architecture– along with plenty of eye candy.  I feel very humbled for our home to be included.  Thanks, Marco!

The last few months have been busy here, and mostly with home renovation related planning.  Our landscaping still hasn’t started and we really wanted to get it underway and done before the summer.  We’re taking our time to make sure it’s right.  That’s what I keep telling myself, ha!

We recently hosted a couple of visitors, including a last minute visit from my parents and an Eichler geek-out with Andy and Karen of fogmodern, both of which we enjoyed hugely.  Since we’ve been touring guests around, I thought I’d give you a little tour too:  our kitchen, which I haven’t shared here before.  It’s a rather original Eichler kitchen, so I hope you’ll enjoy!
