An Eichler restoration in Granada Hills, with budget top of mind

Cindy Epping
By Jeff Spurrier

Set designer Cindy Epping remodeled and redecorated her 1960s Eichler House in Granada Hills on a tight budget. She says she spent less than $50,000 for the reconstruction of her fireplace, the refinishing of original architectural elements and online shopping for decor. That called for much creativity in re-creating the period vibe of the house.

Like many Eichler homes, the entrance to Epping’s house is an atrium. She cleaned up the space, keeping the slat roof (not original to the design) but replacing the plants and adding a simple Primelite lamp.
