Eichler Event: June 15th 10am-4pm 2013 San Rafael
As an Eichler homeowner, I found a nice brochure was placed on my windshield today announcing an Eichler event taking place June 15th in San Rafael. About 50 years ago, Joseph Eichler had over 10,000 homes built throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, but now it can be hard to find replacement products for these mid-century marvels. Hudson Street Design of Marin is here to help by hosting an educational day to show off products perfect for our today Eichlers.
The day sounds like a ton of fun: BBQ lunch, live music by the Hot Rod Juke Box Band and cars from the 50's & 60's. In fact, if you have a car to show off come on down. Votes will be collected on the cars and the winner will receive a $500 dollar gift certificate to HSD-Marin!
Catherine Munson, an original Eichler sales person, will talk about the history of Eichler. I love hearing her share her stories, knowledge and inspiration-a real gem. A panel discussion on renovating Eichlers will be conducted by Bill Hansell, local Architect. A bunch of different representatives for all kinds of products will be there displaying their goods which you can check out up close-very handy!
