The 1940s Eames House showed that with the right amount of ability and careful design, 'off-the-shelf' steel componentry could produce a delightful and thoroughly liveable Californian house.

The picture at right is a 3d rendering of the famous Shulman photograph at left above.

  2. Yep, sure is. Is that a deposit check to start work I see heading my way? :-)
