The tree promises to provide more shade as it grows.Natural light is an important part of Eichler homes. Here, a skylight brightens the laundry room.

Ditto the adjacent laundry room, which has its own skylight — one of the benefits of having a flat roof without an attic.
What Houzzers are commenting on:
Klopf Architecture: cabinets are from IKEA, and the Caesarstone countertop through IKEA; color is called Haze. Their old line called Akurum is no longer available [these were kitchen cabinets] How is the counter reinforced? The white bar you see directly under the countertop is a piece of structural wood, and there is also a plywood surface below the countertop material.
Are the ceiling panels throughout the house wood or other material - what paint finish was used to achieve smooth and semi-glossy effect. Destination Eichler, LLC / Eichler ceilings were originally made from REDWOOD BOARDS; it looks like these were kept original and painted. Klopf Architecture: In some homes where the boards are not painted, matching them can be an issue. And even if they're painted, the original board size was larger than today's size. For instance, a 2 x 8 tongue and groove decking board back then was 1 3/4" thick and a full 8" wide, while today it's only 1 1/2" thick and 7.25" wide!
