Since 1993, the Eichler Network has been dedicated to supporting the lifestyle of the thousands of homeowners in Northern and Southern California who own an 'Eichler' home. Eichlers are architect-designed mid-century modern homes built by merchant builder Joe Eichler between 1949 and 1974. In recent years, the Eichler Network expanded the scope of its homeowner base to include thousands of additional mid-century homeowners in Sacramento and southern California who live in Streng Bros., Palmer & Krisel, Cliff May, and other Eichler-like mid-century modern classics.
The Eichler Network supports a home-maintenance referral service of participating service companies (from remodeling to radiant heat and roofing maintenance) and products (from specially designed insulated windows to customized exterior siding). For 17 years, these hand-picked service companies and experts have banded together to offer their expertise as needed by mid-century modern owners. The Eichler Network's team goal, as its motto so aptly puts it, is to emphasize quality workmanship while "preserving the wonderful world of Eichler homes" and other mid-century modern classics.
In addition to Eichler Network Online, the Eichler Network publishes CA-Modern, a quarterly full-color hard-copy magazine which contains a mix of features on California's rich legacy of mid-century modern homes and the people that live in them, home maintenance solutions, and other features that focus on the modern home and its lifestyle. The Eichler Network also publishes its annual Home Maintenance Directory, which profiles the service companies that maintain the homes. These publications are mailed free to a select 15,000 Eichler, Streng, and other select homeowners (with a readership of 31,000 adult consumers) in Northern California at their modern home address. Paid subscriptions are also available.
