Friday Fixer-Upper: A Craftsman Home in Historic District of Idaho Falls!

Friday Fixer-Upper: A Craftsman Home in Historic District of Idaho Falls!

by Rachael Meyerink

This 1919 Craftsman home is part of a historic district and retains nearly all of its original architectural elements. The original woodwork, hand-painted mantle art, light fixtures, hardware and built-ins are all still present. The kitchen boasts its original cabinetry, wine cupboard and floor-to ceiling subway tile in the breakfast nook. The bathroom also retains its original bathtub and subway tiled walls and floors. The historic integrity that has been preserved in this home is breathtaking and is likely thanks to the fact that in almost 100 years, it has only had two owners. Who wants to be number three?

Rachael_MeyerinkAUTHOR RACHAEL MEYERINK
Rachael Meyerink resides in Sioux Falls, SD and is a Midwestern girl, born and raised. To her, “home” feels like sun shining through windows paned in wavy glass, an extra sweater on cold winter days and a window fan humming in the background in the heat of summer. In short: home feels like an old house. She and her husband have owned three such houses in their 15 years together- a 1923 American Four Square, a 1960s ranch and finally, an 1889 Queen Anne listed on the National Register of Historic Places. By day she works as a pediatric dietitian, and on nights and weekends, rehabs her old house with her husband. Her three children, yellow lab, ginger cat and five chickens complete their family. She keeps an online journal of her old house rehab adventures at myqueenanne.wordpress.com.
