Building a new home is one part chaos and two parts adventure. It is an experience that can be either rewarding or disappointing which is due to the nature of the project. There are many things that go into building a home like choosing a design, choosing a location, and finding a builder who will work in the location you’ve chosen, and all of these decisions can drastically change the outcome of the project. So, it is imperative that these decisions are made well and with much thought.
STAR: a location unlike any other
Located just west of Eagle and north of Meridian lies the small city of Star. It is called home by 6,600 or so people and is a gathering place for those looking to lead a comfortable and convenient lifestyle. It started out, however, like most other cities in Idaho, as a small town of no consequence. From the time that small farming community was incorporated as a city, in 1905, to the turn of the century, its population stayed under 2,000. However, after the year 2,000 its population began to grow at a rapid rate that in the last 15 years it has tripled its size.
This high influx of people caused a spike in the demand for homes, bringing with it dozens of talented builders and their crews to develop the land. Seemingly overnight the city of Star was transformed into a community of new chic homes, constructed with the utmost precision and craftsmanship.
Since all this construction was done within recent years with as much new and innovative methods and materials as possible, the homes in Star are easily some of them most beautiful and coveted dwellings in the valley—which then caused the spike in demand to steepen and grow even more.
Right now, Star has hundreds of subdivisions available with open lots for new construction, and most of the builders that operate out of the Treasure Valley are willing to work out in Star. This allows people who want to build out there to shop around for a builder that meets their needs which is important because each of the builders who works out of the Treasure Valley has a slightly different styles, standards, methods, and prices for their work. So, lucky for those building in Star, almost all of the builders will take a job there.
