Honest opinion on Eichlers

Hi all,

We are moving to Marin and are considering buying an Eichler. My husband loves the period and architecture of the homes. I'm a fan also, but have concerns about the remodel/maintenance issues associated with Eichler homes.

How do Eichler homeowner feel about the upkeep issues?

Are resources (i.e. contractors) easy to find and reliable?

Can a family of 4 live in a 1700 sq. ft. Eichler home? We currently live in a 2200 sq. ft home and I'm worried about downsizing.

Are HOAs strict when it comes to remodeling?

Thanks for your opinion!
