Woodland's 140 houses

Architects Anshen and Allen

Joseph Eichler Home

was designed in 1962 by architects Robert Anshen and Steve Allen. The first Eichler Homes development in Southern California is located on Woodland Street in the City of Orange.

The materials used in the home are ordered in bulk, reducing material costs. Components such as roof trusses are pre-fabricated in factories and installed on site. These practices reduce the final price of homes, and makes developers very happy.

Tract housing is a development style in which multiple identical, or nearly identical, homes are built. Two homes built next to each other might be identical in layout, but have different external facades. Tracts are typically found in american suburbs.

As they only make use of a few designs, labor costs are reduced because the builders need only to learn the skills of constructing one single home design, which can be applied to the other tract homes in the development.
