Hassan Schroeder noted that:

>>Eichler (<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Eichler>) homes 
>>in Northern California had "radiant heat" floors using hot water 
>>pipes embedded in the concrete slab. 

>>Eichler houses were architecturally stunning for the time, 
>>but still priced as middle-class tract homes.

Hi Hassan,

[Sorry for the delay ... Pesky work!]
Actually they still seem pretty cool!  ;-)

Cool enough to have a following keeping track of them:

It *is* Cali though, so the $900k for less than 2000 sq ft 
may strike _some_ of us as being a tad beyond middle-class.

>>I lived in one in Marin with my parents from 1959 to 1964. 
>>It was really comfortable having a warm floor, though the tiles 
>>on the floor tended to get soft, and furniture feet left permanent 
>>marks :-)

Why you you _old_ person you!!  ;-P
