We have created a custom calendar (6x8) with photos from newly remodeled Eichler Homes for 2014. If you would like to have a copy, please email your mailing information to firstname.lastname@example.org while supplies last.
If you plan to visit the Hollywood area in Los Angeles between Sep. 14th to Nov. 18th, you might want to include this showhouse into your travel plans.
This is what CA Home+Design ad said, "Small Space Big Style" features the work of 8 talented LA designers and a host of leading brands, who will explore the relationships between space, style and innovation within the 1,400 sqft penthouse."
Where: Hollywood Condos 6735 Yucca St, Los Angeles,
Date: 9/14-11/18, Every Friday 10-2, Sat/Sun 10-3.
Before or after you go see the showhouse, you might want to stop by the Duplex On Third for a lunch/brunch since it's only a 15 min drive.
Built in the early 1900s to house two families, this former LA resdience is ow primed to welcome far more to the table. Duplex on Third is a quintessentially California dining experience, from the open-air patio to the farm-to-table menu to the crocodile-sofa-meet-reclaimed-wood pastiche of the interiors by designer Thomas Schoos.
Looks like we have finally made the national news scene! A proud day for Eichler enthusiasts and special thanks goes out to all of our supporters and clients who helped make these photos possible (I'm sure you recognize your homes). Sabrina's work now shown on the WSJ.com slideshow is such an honor and well deserved recognition for how she brings our beloved homes to life for all to see.
Although Nancy was smart enough not to print the description I used where some second story additions look like a shipping container fell out of the sky, this is a great article highlighting the growing appreciation for Eichler and Midcentury Modern homes and how they are continuing to evolve in the hands of the next generation of enthusiasts.
Those of you that have been visiting our Eichler Homes / MESH website during the past two years may recall that this was the first step in my transitioning from an active real estate brokerage, to one of inactivity, and essentially to my retirement from Eichler Homes Realty.
The time has passed very quickly, and as I know you have seen, Mark and Sabrina have continued to ably serve both the buyers and sellers of the Eichler, and provide a lot of useful information to Eichler enthusiasts in general. That was the whole idea, and it has been a very pleasant, constructive and successful “passing of the baton.”
Certain events in ones life are more memorable than others. My decision 18 years ago to enter a “retirement career”, forming a real estate brokerage to do nothing but specialize in the Eichler Home was certainly one of those. While viewed in the industry as a rather different approach, and “not the way it’s done”, it has been both fun and gratifying. Even though I am obviously biased, the attention I was able to bring to “the Eichler” through my promotional and educational efforts, and then the attention that all of that engendered, seemed to raise a positive awareness to the Eichler that had not been present before. At least I think that is the case, and I feel good about that.
To all of you that I’ve been able to help in some way, my thanks for letting me do so. For those of you that have just “found” the Eichler, you’ve found a historic piece of architecture. Learn as much as you can about it, and this is a good place to start.
My best wishes,
Jerry is proud of the attention and interest his publications have brought, once again, to the work of Joseph Eichler.
Some of you may have received this 2011 Calendar at your doorway which was hand delivered by Mark (he does that every year since 2008).
This year we made the calendar a bit bigger so the photo and the month would be on the same page. Also, it can be hung on the wall or stand on a table. This year we are using some funny quotes and hope to bring you laughter all year round.
We would like to thank you for being with us. 2010 has been a great year for us and we could not do it without your support. We would like to offer 15 calendars for the first 15 readers who answer three questions in the comments (please leave your name and email address so we can contact you for your mailing info OR you can email us with your name and mailing address).
1. If you are going to remodel your Eichler in 2011, would you be willing to let us document (take photos), and post the before and after photos and the experience on this site?
2. Do you have any Eichler stories to share? Do you know any Original owners who can share their memories, tell us what Eichler living was like back then?
3. Do you know any talented artists in your Eichler community?
