WHO ARE WE?
Hey! We’re Andy and Karen. I’m hoping you can tell who’s who. We’re kinda shy in front of the camera, so don’t expect many pics of us here. This was taken by a skilled photographer, for Sacramento Magazine –he distracted us with jokes about British people. Yes, that’s us.
RANDOM FACTS YOU CAN USE AGAINST US
Karen is English, with a dash of Danish. She drinks lots of British tea, loves milk chocolate, mint sauce, Pimm’s, The Smiths, and playing the drums. When she’s not painting walls, she can be found: in a nearby pool.
Andy is English, with a splash of Welsh. He always picks the spicy option, loves dark chocolate, pickled anything, craft beer, and singing. When he’s not digging holes, he can be found: in a nearby pool hall.
HOW DID WE GET HERE?
We created fogmodern to document/share our renovation, pool resources and geek-out about Eichlers. We also wanted to connect with fellow Eichler and MCM homeowners, fans of modern design and DIY-ers. And we’ve done that plenty, even taking the fogmodern MINI (AKA “Austin”) on tour.
People often ask how/why we picked the name “fogmodern” –”fog” is a nod to winter tule fog, in Sacramento, and summer coastal fog, in San Francisco. “Modern” references modern design and architecture –the root of Eichler Homes. Hopefully that makes things less ‘foggy’.
