We're in escrow!





This Eichler was one of approximately 60 homes designed by architects A. Quincy Jones + Frederick E. Emmons and built by developer Joseph Eichler in Sacramento circa 1955, which we purchased from the original owners' estate.

I'm starting this blog to:
- document our adventures preserving this mid-century icon;
- document the history and current state of Eichlers in Sacramento;
- identify helpful and interesting resources;
- report on other modern architecture and design in Sacramento.

Welcome!
