This is our story.

Hi! We’re Brandy and Rick McLain of Modern House Numbers.

In 2008, we were finishing a renovation of our home here in Tucson, Arizona. We wanted to install some modern address numbers as the final touch. To our surprise, we couldn’t find anything we liked. With our experience in architecture and construction we decided to make our own.

Our numbers were everything we had envisioned: stylish, modern and durable. After we put them up, lots of people knocked on our door to ask us about our new numbers. We jumped at the opportunity to help people just like you create your own head-turning, modern curb appeal.

All these years later, we’re proud that every modern number we make is still hand-crafted by our talented team right here in Tucson, AZ.

We hope you enjoy your new Modern House Numbers as much as we enjoy making them!

Brandy + Rick
