Renovation

Renovations are a favorite at Studio Boise

Maybe you need home renovating to bring your home’s technology up to date.  With computers, game systems, washer and dryers, and the love of more contemporary open space, many of the historic homes we love just don’t make sense on the inside.  Studio Boise has the solutions to renovate your home and bring it into the 21st century.

Not only is renovation design a very stimulating puzzle for any designer, it is also sustainable.  What better way to conserve materials than to use what  is already there?  One of the early steps of renovating your home will be to assess its condition.  If termites have overrun the roof’s rafters or water has damaged the structure, we will let you know right away; we prefer to avoid financial surprises where possible.  We actually see these challenges as positives. If you know early in the design process that you need to invest some money in a new roof, we can start looking for all the ways that slight changes in the roof can improve the spaces in your home. If you know the basement walls need to be rebuilt, we can capitalize on that situation by designing that space into a room you will use.

Boise is lucky to have some beautiful historic neighborhoods like the East End and North End.  If you are looking to do an accurate, historical home restoration, Studio Boise will be meticulous in doing so.  We are committed to any amount of research necessary to restore your home to its glory days.

Before and After North End Renovation:  Like a wall flower at a party, sometimes all a neglected home needs is a little lipstick to revitalize its curb appeal.  With this Boise North End exterior remodel, we started pulling the look together by putting wooden double hung windows in every opening.  By adding a trim belt around the exterior, we were able to break up the large, blank space on the front of the building.  Simple color blocking above and below this trim belt helps the home respond better to the proportion of its North End neighbors which are smaller and have more architectural details.  Finally, we changed out railings and added a little trim around the entry.
