The revered post and beam design of the Streng brothers mid-century modern home was built over 50 years ago, and while the appeal of their design has stood the test of time, the exposed beams have not. The beam’s original projection was 7 to up to 12 inches, and due to decay from years of exposure, most all have been cut back to the fascia leaving it exposed to the elements once more. Many Eichler and Streng homeowners are choosing to increase the value of their mid-modern home by restoring the exterior aesthetic, and for good reason. The Eichler and Streng home designs have become historic collector’s investments!
