We were contracted by a couple new to the area to do some updates on this 1940's farm house. Their intention was to live in the house while we build a large custom home. Well, the snowmageddon of 2016/2017 created some havoc while they were away. This resulted in an entire "gut" of the house. It is now such a little treasure! A custom mud room bench with shoe cubbies welcomes you at the back door. A new laundry area complete with a folding bench was an added bonus. Both bathrooms were expanded and new fixtures installed. The basement was completely reconfigured and there was the perfect spot for a wet bar. We removed an old chimney and closet in the kitchen area to create a larger, very user friendly area. We used the hole in the roof where the chimney was to add a skylight to allow natural sunlight into the kitchen. We added rustic beams in the living using salvaged wood from the snow damage. Beautiful custom shaker style cabinets were added throughout the house. Travertine backsplashes and granite counter tops transform the feel of the whole house. Even though the interior of the house has been brought into the 21st century, the exterior still shows it's farm house charm. We did add a redwood deck for enjoying the views of the Owyhee Mountains and incomparable Idaho sunsets.
