There are two Wexler & Harrison homes on Lilliana Drive. The entire loop was supposed to be W&H, but only the two were built. This was before Wexler built his own home in Palm Springs in 1955. This house was featured on the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation's Wexler Weekend in 2010 (as wa...

My wife and I live in PS. We're both professionals, she works locally, I telecommute. While we don't have children, I can say the quality of life here is great, and that's not just from the martinis! PS is a odd mix. We have snowbirds here during "season" (Nov-May). We have weekenders out ...

Palm Springs window replacement companies?

Can anyone recommend a window replacement company in the Palm Springs area? We own a MCM Wexler that needs a few new sliding windows (frames, screens and all).

Thanks!
