Where's Nate?

living large in the four-oh-eight. wicked large.


more new digs.

I've received a number of questions and comments about the new place. For folks who aren't familiar with the Eichler style, I've included a sample floor plan in this post. As you can see, the front door opens into an open air atrium. More photos coming soon.


new digs.

Today is one of those days where I don't miss Ann Arbor. While much of the country shivered beneath a blanket of ice and snow, it was 60 and partly cloudy in San Jose. Wheresnate has been relatively quiet the past month. That's because Paige and I have been spending a decent amount of time buying a new house (and selling our current one). We found a fantastic Eichler in the Mossbrook neighborhood of West San Jose and will be moving (fingers crossed) before the holidays. I will be sure to post photos and write updates as we move forward.

For those who don't live in the Bay Area, an "Eichler" is a mid-century modern home built in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright. Must Eichlers (including ours) include floor to ceiling windows and an open-air atrium in the middle of the house. They have become something of a collector's item, especially in exclusive neighborhoods in Palo Alto and San Jose. The Mossbrook area, in particular, is known for well-maintained Eichlers that remain faithful to the 1950s style.

More updates soon.
