Kaltenbach did function as a builder for a few tracts-Mostly called 'Palm Village' and usually located in Placentia.

Barry Berkus designed several tracts for McCarthy-Sant co. in Diamond Bar and Yorba Linda (Fairmont Tracts) and around Hacienda Heights. And I think for S & S.

LC Majors had a lot of tracts built by Deane Homes famous for their 'Garden Kitchen' concept with the pass thru window to an eating bar outside.

Oh, I need to throw in some Colorado architects:

Richard Deaton: famous "Sleeper" flying saucer house

Charles Haertling: My favorite Colorado architect (http://www.atomix.com/haertling/haertling_designs.html) He has a house in Sleeper as well.

Eugene Sternberg: Designed Denver's Arapahoe Acres (every home on the national historic register: http://www.arapahoeacres.org/selected_houses.htm)

Oops, I meant Charles Deaton, of course, which I shouldn't have got wrong as I just spent a lot of effort drawing a house by him:
