100-Year-Old North End Renovation

Preserving history (and arches) in a historic North End home.

This historic home was in dire need of a modern refresh. Because it’s in a historic district, we ensured all the work we did was compliant with the Historic Preservation Commission rules. We took the house down to the studs and added about 600 square feet of new foundation and framing. We abated all lead and asbestos, and removed the original lathe and plaster walls and knob and tube electrical. All new insulation, high-efficiency mechanical, electrical, and plumbing were all installed.

All work complied with Boise’s Historic Preservation Commission regulations.

We added double-paned fiberglass windows, which were compliant with the Historic Preservation Commission, as well as used high-end finishes and appliances. Custom-inset cabinetry makes the kitchen one of a kind. The exterior of the home is all new as well, aside from the historic front façade. We used fiber-cement siding, and added a new roof and porch.

To pay homage to the original design, we added arches throughout. This 100-year-old home is essentially brand new and truly beautiful.
