This was a 1937 non contributing home in Boise’s North End Historic District. It used to have a separate access from outside into a basement apartment. The new owners wanted to change the use and add safety as well as additional light.
Change the existing door into a large sliding Egress window with a concrete retaining wall.
We got permission from the neighbors to waive the 10 day appeal process
We did not disturb any paint so lead testing was not necessary. Water proofed with a tar emulsion and used a sheet drain. The window was a vinyl double pane gridded low-e window. The interior was left unfinished.
