It was a 4 bedroom, 2 bath; but, it had no master suite, and that is a big issue. This home was also a split-level, and fair or not, split-level homes have always carried somewhat of a stigma.  So we set-out to bring in natural light, create clean lines, and add warmth through natural wood, other natural elements, and some greenery – a lot like you might expect to find in the beautiful forests of Idaho. We call this style “Idaho mod.”

When this project first started we were talking about raising the ceiling in just the living room, but before we knew it, we decided to go for it and raise the ceiling in the entire upstairs. We had no idea what it was going to cost because we had never done anything like this before. This ended up costing us more than we had hoped, but the change was worth it. It truly took the house to the next level and literally added a whole new dimension.

We craft each home as if we are remodeling it for our own families. So, creating a master suite was non-negotiable. We combined two bedrooms upstairs so that the adults could have their own beautiful private master area. Now, you never want to reduce the number of bedroom in a home because it just isn’t smart for the valuation of a home.

So, we looked to another non-functional area on the lower floor and converted it into a beautiful additional bedroom. We then created a family room downstairs for visiting, TV, and fun. The family room was very large and just needed something special, so we added an amazing live edge natural wood multifunctional bar/desk – just what the room called for.

The mid-century home had been completely transformed while still honoring its original amazing design. It is always our goal to not just provide a well-built practical family home; but, we also want to evoke the visceral core response of simply “wow.” A clean and fresh, yet warm and inviting feeling in every room must be present. When we see folks just enjoying the space then we know we’ve achieved what we set out to accomplish.
