House number recs for an Eichler

Postby oldskoolboarder » Mon Aug 30, 2010 1:25 pm

We just finished remodeling our 5 br Eichler and now we're down to that last, nasty 20% of details. We previously had some house numbers on the front and I had them removed so we could 'update' the look.

I've seen the LED numbers on Chiasso, some simple numbers at Home Depot, and the numbers at Eicherlnumbers.com. All are doable. We'd like to go w/ more of the metal look.

1) Any suggestions?
2) Has any one tried the solar LEDs ones? If so, how do you like them?
3) I'm open to suggestions on placement. The existing light fixture will be replaced w/ a camera, the wiring is already in place. I could put it on the front, but it would most likely have to be vertical. Or, I could put it somewhere above the mailbox but then it's a bit close to the door. Ideas?

Thanks in advance for the help.

I would go with original Eichler numbers and position an original sconce to shine down on them.
