As you may know, I've previously designed and published an Eichler Homes Calendar which includes fantastic photos of mid-century modern Eichler homes in the San Francisco Bay Area.     This year is no different and I just put the finishing touches on the 2011 Eichler Homes Calendar which features a diverse collection of Eichler Homes in Marin County, California.
