Sunnyvale Building and Remodeling Information
The City of Sunnyvale has a population of about 140,000 in an area of nearly 22 square miles. The City is remarkably well-managed and is quite serious about trees with an arborist on staff. Well known for high-tech and aerospace companies, what impresses us is that Sunnyvale is the birthplace of the unique mid-century Eichler home. The Eichler homes had revolutionary ideas such as the kitchen and family room sharing space, which is commonplace today. With over 1000 Eichler homes, the City of Sunnyvale offers specific Eichler design guidelines, to both protect the design aesthetic and ensure privacy for neighboring homes.
Similar to other Bay Area cities, the City of Sunnyvale relies on the Greenpoint Rating program developed by Build It Green to implement their green building ordinance. Green building requirements come into play for new home construction and for remodels, addtions, and alterations that exceed $100,000 in valuation.
