A funny note is that Eichler was not an architect but a developer inspired by his childhood home that was built by Frank Lloyd Wright.
Eichler designed homes are known for flat and low sloping A-frame roofs with exposed interior rafters, floor to ceiling windows that are strategically placed to provide natural light and clear views into the front and back of the house and of course the "open" living space. The open living space was designed to have the outside flow inside. He built more than 11,000 homes.
