Those drawn to the Bauhaus design and mid-century modern homes quickly become stark-raving fans of Eichler Homes. Between 1949 and 1966, Joseph Eichler built over 11,000 homes in California, known as Eichlers, and became one of the nation’s most influential builders of modern homes.

Visit https://841menker.com/ for property information.

Eichler homes are from a branch of Modernist architecture that has come to be known as “California Modern,” and and typically feature glass walls, post and beam construction, and open floorplans in a style indebted to Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe. One of Eichler’s signature concepts was to “Bring the Outside In,” achieved via floor-to-ceiling glass windows looking out on protected and private outdoor rooms. The Eichler trademark interior is beautiful Lauan mahogany panel walls, with an open modern floor plan.

Happy Earth Day 2016! Start a Compost Pile for your garden

Start a Compost Pile, Courtesy Jeanne Huber

Instead of having your food waste, plant debris, and fallen leaves hauled to the dump, why not turn them into compost? The dark, rich organic matter helps garden and landscape plants grow bigger and more beautiful. Plus, it saves you money and time by reducing your water, fertilizer, and even weeding needs, since a few inches of compost laid like mulch will prevent most weeds from sprouting.

Making backyard compost even has a civic benefit because it saves landfill space, helping to keep garbage-processing costs lower for you and your neighbors. You can make compost without spending a penny, or you can buy simple equipment that looks tidier and speeds up the transformation process. Whichever approach you take, you’ll need to understand a few key principles of composting. Continue reading
