For those of you looking for design inspiration for your modern or midcentury modern abode, I would encourage you to attend the 2007 Eichler Homes Tour to benefit the Hospice by the Bay. This two day event is hosted in Marin County California (which is located just north of San Francisco) and will feature over 20 post-and-beam, midcentury ranch homes built by Joseph Eichler. This annual event for charity is a great opportunity to see a variety of different Eichler floorplans and also get some inspirational ideas for updating or remodeling your modern home. Marin Eichler Tour Dates are as follows: Saturday, Sept 15, 10am - 4pm Sunday, Sept 16, 10am - 4pm
Tickets are priced at $50/one day or $80 for both the Saturday & Sunday Tour. This event has been an overwhelming success the last few years, with attendees coming from around the country (and the Bay Area) for this great charity event. Hopefully you can make a San Francisco vacation out of it and take in some great mid-century modern residential architecture! Tickets for this special event have recently gone on sale and can be purchased online.
