Boise Houses - Architecture & Style

boise-home-32_400Colonial Style: This style initially became popular in 1876, and was intended to reflect both patriotism and simplicity. A Colonial style house will feature square, evenly-spaced, multi-paned windows with shutters. The front door will typically be located in the center of the house. The house will be rectangular, two-stories high and contain a large fireplace. The downstairs level will be used as a living area; while the bedrooms will be upstairs.

Tudor Style:  Gracefully slopping lines frame a Tudor style home. The front of the house will feature a light/dark paint scheme, and the front door will typically be heavy dark wood with a glass insert. Front windows will be divided into panes that create geometric designs. Inside a Tudor house in Boise, Idaho, you will find the ceilings of the rooms lined with wooden beams.

Craftsman Style:  Homes in the Craftsman style will feature elements of artisan handiwork. Emphasis will be placed on wood and stonework, which often creates a rustic feel. Craftsman houses have low ceilings, and hanging eaves beneath the gables. Porches are wide and spacious, and typically made of stone.

Queen Anne Style: A common feature of this style is a round, multi-story tower on one corner of the house. Most Queen Anne houses also have a verandah, which wraps around most, if not all, of the exterior. Many houses in Boise of this style include Tuscan columns in the verandah, a large mantelpiece in the entry hall, and beveled glass window transoms above the interior doorways.

Mail-Order Kit Home:  What was a kit home? In the early 1900s, many homeowners purchased kit homes from mail-order catalogs. Sears kit homes were probably the best known. These kits, each containing 10,000 to 30,000 pieces, were shipped via boxcar. Each kit came with a 75-page instruction book, and all the pieces were marked to simplify construction.  Blueprints were drawn with the novice homebuilder in mind, listing each numbered piece and its precise placement. No detail was too small to be listed in the manual, including the correct spacing for the 750 pounds of nails. Sears sold more than 70,000 kit homes between 1908 and 1940; and many were shipped to the Boise area.
No matter what style of house you are looking for, you will find a house in Boise, Idaho, that fits your needs.
