investing in an eichler was a no-brainer. remodeling? i was out of ideas.

when trolling for real estate ten years ago, i was given the option of purchasing a vintage eichler. i’d seen about 100 or more properties, and the low ceilings, bad insulation and small rooms didn’t inspire many ideas. we opted for a much larger space. if we doubled wall thickness [they were cardboard thin!], and managed a bold remodel like the one below (by Modative )…i could have lived with the eichler.
