I'm not sure if everyone looking for Eichler house numbers that mimic the original style are aware of their options, so I thought I would mention a few.
- you can make them for yourself, see posting (cost of materials)
- you can have them made up by a fabrication company (approx.$200)
- you can have them made by some of our fellow Eichler owners (one source $125, another source $50, others??)
I am not recommending or endorsing any particular source or method. I simply wanted to put the information out there for people who are still in need of replacement house numbers.
P.S. If you want the contact info for the one or two Eichler owners I know who are making them, you can drop me a line eichfan AT rawbw DOT com

we're more familiar with - lasercut acrylic with sprayed polyurethane
painted coating - and this appears to be best solution.
Will post pictures and new pricing online once ready to take orders.
Thank you [and anyone else you know] for your/their patience."
