Mini Eichler in Walnut Creek
I found a great little piece of Eichler History on the Eichler Network Chatterbox Lounge. There is a 'mini' Eichler in Walnut Creek. :
The owner is an original owner from 1955. Eichler created this mini version as a sales office/showroom. After all of the Eichlers in Rancho San Miguel were sold she bought this unit directly from Joseph Eichler and had it moved into her backyard.This building was recently listed for rent on Craigslist (from where these pics were borrowed). The specs for the space, from the ad:
Her husand was some type of therapist and used it as an office with clients.
"Mini" 5 room Eichler home (487 sq feet) located in desirable Walnut Creek neighborhood. Ideal for one person; tight for two.

Large private patio (approx 400 sq feet)

Washer and dryer
Garden plot available to renter (approx 600 sq feet)

Great piece of Eichler history.
