There is one thing that you will need one buying a home to protect you from buying a bad house. Of course, you will always need a mortgage to buy the house, but the home inspection is your insurance. An inspection finds potential problems with a house. It lets you walk away entirely, or renegotiate for a better selling price or for the seller to fix the problems before you buy the house. A home inspection is a really good tool to make sure the house you are buying is up to muster. More than that, a home inspection is often required by the mortgage lender.

So you need a home inspection. The problem is finding a good home inspector. Idaho doesn’t require that home inspectors here are licensed. The state doesn’t regulate them at all. Finding the…

The great outdoors is certainly one of the biggest draws for living in Idaho. This state is full of natural and rugged beauty, and it has something for everyone. But just because Idaho is a great place to live for the casual recreationalist doesn’t mean it doesn’t answer of the call of those people looking for something a little more extreme. Idaho has plenty of great locations for BASE jumping and paragliding, and there are more than enough mountains for even the best mountain climbers to have a good challenge. Sometimes, it goes beyond just a simple challenge.

In Idaho, there are nine mountain peaks with an elevation over 12,000 feet. These climbs are already challenging, with all but one of them being class 3 routes and climbs. But there’s…

The brisk mountain air blows gently across your face, as you adjust your ski goggles and get ready to push off. With a nudge from your ski poles, you take off down the mountain, cutting through the snow. The wind whips past you, but you don’t notice anymore. You’re carving down the slope, cutting through trees, as you sail down the mountain.

The Tamarack Resort has plenty to offer during the summer, from swimming to mountain biking and everything in between. But Tamarack isn’t any less fun in the winter. There’s just as much to do here in the winter as there is in the summer, making Tamarack Idaho’s playground. The resort town is located about 100 miles north of Boise in the Bitterroot Mountains. It’s located perfectly and provides plenty of…

The work day is coming to an end. You type up the last few emails you need to send, and you’re done. You close your laptop, and then get up and stretch. While you wonder what the commute home would be like, you step out of your office and into your home. You don’t have a commute, fortunately. You work from home at your home office. And when you’re work day is done, you’re already at home.

Working from home certainly isn’t new, and neither is having a home office. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have the best home office that you can have. It’s where you work, after all, and it’s where you’ll spend your day earning your income.

Contemporary kitchens are all about clean lines, modern technologies, and using old materials in ways. Contemporary styles draw heavily from modern design, but where modern designs tend to be clean, and almost sterile with white colors, simple lines, and virtually no decoration, contemporary design adds color, texture, layers, and unique decorations.

Because contemporary kitchens are all about using the latest technologies and keeping clean lines, there are some must haves for any contemporary kitchen, regardless of how you design your dream kitchen. You don’t want to give up space, but you still want your kitchen to be clean and simple. Of course, achieving this look doesn’t mean you have to give up any function, and instead, there are…

We spend a lot of time in bathrooms. Getting ready in the morning, taking a shower, relaxing after a long day, or just getting away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house. Why not make your bathroom a place that you enjoy going? It’s always said that kitchens sell the house. And that’s true. Kitchens are an important part of any home, and they tend to be where every gathers. But the bathroom is right up there too. Be honest, you like being able to sneak away to relax in the bathtub to get away from the rest of the house.

If you’re going to use your bathroom as a private oasis, it should look like one. And there’s one design style that delivers exceptionally well, and it even works regardless of whether you have a small bathroom or a…

You have probably heard about, or at least driven past, the Boise Farmers Market on a busy Saturday. It would be hard not to: the farmers market is located in the heart of Downtown Boise, Idaho at 11th and Grove. But have you ever stopped to check it out? If not, you are missing out on a vibrant industry fueled solely by locally grown and raised foods. For the freshest foods, and the best tasting foods, you will want to buy local. If that’s not enough an incentive, here are plenty of reasons why you should buy local and support local farmers at the Boise Farmers Market.

1. Buying local is good for the local economy. This is probably already apparent. When you spend money at a business that isn’t local, that money leaves the community.…
