I went to an open house and wow. Totally original and immaculate. Everything is still there even the furniture. Small backyard but if your not into yard maintance then this one is perfect. They were asking $825,000!
The picture on the link do not do it justice. Go see it for yourself.

I would think a post and beam home would have to be built to a higher standard than a frame home which could allow a greater amount of sloppy work to be hidden by sheetrock or lath/plaster."

I live in an Eichler and I can speak firsthand that there are other places besides exposed beams in which to hide sloppy work! The house IS great, but let's not forget that it is indeed a tract home, and not a custom built one...

Check out this (partial) reprint from the Oct. 20, 2005 edition of the L.A. Times:

L.A.'S ARCHITECTURAL HERITAGE | FOURTH IN A SERIES
The once and future ranch

By Scott Timberg, Times Staff Writer

"The postwar icon is wooing a new generation. Yes, your folks' house is cool again.

"ITS low-slung frame sprawled across plains and valleys of a more open landscape. The single-story footprint didn't boast, or point skyward like the self-assured colonial or Victorian. It offered a comfortable relationship with the climate and surrounding flora, and a democratic, open floor plan; it didn't section off areas into servants quarters or announce visitors in grand foyers. It was modern without being Space Age, modest without being plain, evoking history without being mere nostalgia.

"If a style of residential architecture can symbolize an era, the ranch house became the iconic American home in the period from roughly 1945 to 1970: By some estimates, 70% of American homes built in the 25 years after World War II were ranch houses....

Thanks, Scott, for a job well done!
