Mark your calendar for Saturday, June 27, 2015 when the American Institute of Architects, Orange County will host the 2015 Eichler Home Tour. The five featured homes are on a mile-long route in the Fairhaven neighborhood in the city of Orange. I don’t think it gets more convenient than that! Park once, then stroll through the neighborhood as you visit these iconic MCM homes.

The hours for the tour are a bit nontraditional. The event begins at 5 pm and extends through 8:30 pm, with an after tour reception for AIA members at 8 pm. Tickets for the tour are $25 for AIA members, $35 for non-members, and $10 for the reception.

Not part of the tour, but open to all participants is a pre-event Happy Hour, hosted by Eichler SoCal and Better Living SoCal.

Get ready for the 5th Marin Living: Home Tours, set for May 30, 2015. This daylong event promises to be fun for architecture buffs, a nice glimpse into Marin neighborhoods and Marin style for prospective homebuyers, and an enjoyable way to spend the day for anyone looking for a mini road trip.

This year’s tour will provide a glimpse into a Marinwood Eichler that has been transformed inside and out into a 21st Century home while maintaining Eichler’s original design intent. The Marin home tour will also include three unique contemporary homes: a multi-pavilioned home in Fairfax, a very modern ranch situated on 42 acres near Nicasio, and a sustainably designed hillside home in San Anselmo.

The tour looks like great fun and a wonderful way to see a

This weekend’s Silicon Valley Modern Home Tour is going to be an Eichler-palooza. Of the six featured homes on this self-guided tour, three are Eichlers and a fourth is a brand new, Eichler-inspired, atrium home. The remaining two Mid-Century homes on the tour are a Palo Alto home that was designed by Eichler architects Anshen + Allen and a 1963 post-and-beam, steel framed home designed by Beverley David Thorne.

Since this a self-guided, go-at-your-own-pace tour, I imagine you can begin wherever you want – and, if you haven’t already purchased tickets, they will be available on the day of the tour at any of the tour homes:

All of you in SoCal have a great home tour coming up this week.  The Jack and Jill Guild of Orange County is presenting their 43rd Annual Holiday Home Tour on Friday, November 21, 2014.  What is particularly exciting about this year’s tour is that two amazing Eichler homes will be in the mix, as well as a completely updated Mid-Century home and a classic Spanish Hacienda.

Anyone who has read Atomic Ranch: Design Ideas for Stylish Ranch Homes is familiar with one of the Eichlers on the tour.  This thoughtfully modified 2,066 square feet home, located in the city of Orange, was featured on the cover!  This is an incredible opportunity to appreciate this lovely Eichler home in person.

Also on the tour is a 1964 Eichler in the Fairhills Eichler

Well, it’s all over but the shouting – at least for this year.  This weekend’s San Mateo Eichler Home Tour was a rousing success and so much fun.  It was wonderful to participate in this great event and to meet so many fellow Eichler and MCM enthusiasts.  I’m already looking forward to next year…

The San Mateo Highlands Eichler Home Tour took place last weekend, May 3-4, 2014, and featured all sorts of fun activities that weren’t limited to merely touring the fabulous Eichler homes.  Vintage cars set the scene for the showcase homes; and homeowners, artists, contractors, and architects were there to meet and greet.  A mini-museum showed vintage Eichler brochures and photographs, and a vintage Airstream offered a glimpse into state-of-the-art camping –
