Later, other firms worked with Eichler’s company to build similar houses. Together, they all came to be known as Eichlers. During this period, Eichler became one of the nation’s most influential builders of modern homes. The largest contiguous Eichler Homes development is “The Highlands” in San Mateo, built between 1956 and 1964.
