Eichler Balboa Highlands Thermador?

Anyone know what model Thermador electric cooktop and oven were original to the Balboa Highlands Eichler's in Granada Hills, Los Angeles? I have one of the 1964 A. Quincy Jones models. Have found a number of old appliances on craigslist and ebay over the years, but I think they are all earlier model...

Eicher Zolatone Colors

Un-remodeling my Eichler kitchen. Luckly, all I need to do is swap out the black 1980's appliances, get rid of the Corian, and get the paint off the cabinets. No major prior surgery was done. I have some pics of the house pre-remodel, and the ash cabinet cases were dark stained and the sliding mason...

Restoring my Loggia

I've removed the ill-advised ceramic tile that previous owners had installed over the pebble loggia in my Eichler. Now I need help bringing it back to it's 60's splendor! There is still alot of trace thin set mortar--I've chipped up about as much as I can. How can I get that stuff off?!

Eichler Light Switches

Anybody know where to find original, refurbished, or replica light switches for Eichlers? Mine has a mix of the original and replacement, and I'd like to swap out the replacements if possible. Same goes for outlets and switchplates. Some of the originals are brown (on the luan walls) and others beig...

Yes, a chairlift. The single-person chairlift up at Kratka

I'd certainly sign on to an effort to save the Kratka chairlift, and the rest of Kratka, for that matter. There are a number of historic structures up in the San Gabriels, dating to the 40's - 60's, chronicling the birth of alpine skiing in the US. Various clubs from that era pioneered American down...

Thanks, everybody, for the advice. I've got the Far West and Eichler Siding references, and will look into taking a credit if any siding replacement turns out to be necessary, and doing the whole wall. But, after my own inspection, it appears I might be able to salvage the original instead.

Eichler siding

I know this is resurrecting an old post, but it seems relevant. I need help with siding replacement in Balboa Highlands (Granada Hills). I'm in contract on a home on Jimeno which requires repairs to water damaged and termite infested siding. Sellers are responsible for the repairs. The home has all ...
