Before Whole House Remodel

The Challenge:

This whole house remodeling project at 1301 N 25th Street in Boise Idaho is being done for several reasons. The first and foremost is that it is a spectacular example of a Spanish Revival home in Boise’s North End. The Owners, a young couple felt that they loved the character of the home but found it too compact for their taste. Fortunately there is an architect in the family, armed with a new set of plans set out to find a professional qualified remodeler. The home was built in 1936 and remodeled once in 1994. As it turns out it had a twin to the north and used to be housing for ranch hands. The North End Historic Society considers it a contributing home and therefore is being protected as far a character and style. Lead Locators was initially contacted to do pre-renovation lead testing and found the home was heavily leaded. being a certified firm Levco Builders was selected to do the project based upon relationship, client recommendations, NARI membership and having a passion for older homes.

The Idea:

To use the basic structure and massing of the home and improve the interior flow by rearranging the bathroom and adding a master bedroom suite and a guest area as well as covered parking.

The Solution:

We added 12’ to the side of the home to add a modern kitchen and developed the a master suite and a climate controlled studio space. We also added a separate two car garage

The Details:

Custom cabinets, High performance insulation, Granite counter tops,  Metal clad wood windows. Stucco siding

The Time Frame: 5 months

The price range: $200.000
