I bought my Eichler a year ago, and recently finished the remodel. I knew nothing about Eichlers when I bought the house, and spent a lot of time on this site looking for recommendations.
A year later, I've got a new cork floor, sliding roof, and am really happy with the result.
As a thank you to all other Eichler owners who shared their experiences, I wrote a blog post about it. You can see it at http://atotic.wordpress.com/2010/06/02/eicher-remodel-3/
That's great to know that you are happy with the new remodel home. One need to be very lucky to get good contractor. Thanks for sharing your experience.
