SoCal Eichler Homes

Eichler Homes, Inc., was established in 1949, and in 1959 the company expanded to Southern California by developing tracts in Orange.  Construction of the Fairhaven tract began in 1960, the Fairmeadow tract in 1962, and the Fairhills tract in 1963. The first Southern California city to sprout the distinctive post-and-beam homes, Orange is the site of 350 of the 600 Southern California Eichlers. - Via


For renovations of residences by Eichler Homes, the real-estate developer known for subdivisions in postwar California, the go-to architecture firm is appropriately called Modern House. So far, the firm has redone eight of these post-and-beam tract houses built for efficiency with, generally, a one-level 1,500-square-foot plan. Photography by Assassi Productions.


Lewis Baltz, Three Photographs from the Series “Park City”, (1980)

 While Lewis Baltz is perhaps best known for his New Industrial Parks near Irvine, California series, Park City might be a better candidate as the magnum opus of the artist’s early work. Not merely representative of the stylistic and conceptual framework of the photographic movement he helped to define, Park City is the single most exhaustive and far-reaching visual criticism of 1970s-era American real estate development: the series is thus the New Topographics document par excellence. The series’ 102 plates (Baltz defines the Series as “a sequential work of 102 elements”) first take the viewer through overall site views that set up a jarring contrast between the mountains (already carved up for the ski area) and the freshly built condominiums and houses that soon will take over the landscape.


Faces of Meth

Each of these innocuous looking homes has been declared unfit for habitation.  They are on State of Oregon’s list of known, former drug labs. None of them appears to have a single sinister board in their frame, which is all the more frightening.  Maybe these are the before photos.

Oregon publishes a register of these houses on the internet.  It even encourages citizens to receive email update to the list is added to. The promotion is kind of odd.  It’s kind of like the opposite of a National Register listing.  It is a register of shame.

Landmarking a building can be a catalyst for development and community action.  Maybe the list of drug labs could be used the same way.  With the right marketing and incentives could a negative listing become a positive for communities?

Blueberries treat UTI's!!!!

A few months back I read that blueberries cure UTIs. Last night at work I felt one coming on. I had 3 more hours of standing to go before closing the store.

I decided to walk to the CinnaMonster next door and get a blueberry smoothie. The only ingredients in their fruit smoothies are your selection of fruit, some type of yogurt milk and ice. This time I asked for extra blueberries (thankfully the associate didn’t charge me extra!). By store closing I wasn’t in anymore pain.

When I got home I took 2 AZO cranberry pills ( I keep these due to having at least 2 UTIs a year) with a full glass of water just to be sure and I have yet to feel any pain or urges!🙌🙌

This time-lapse of the #MuizenbergFire shows how quickly it spread in just two hours

The massive fire which has been raging across Cape Town’s Southern peninsula since the early hours of Sunday morning has consumed massive tracts of vegetation, seen homes damaged and evacuated and some awe-inspiring photography.
