Idaho is one of the lucky places that experiences distinct four season weather with fairly temperate days and nights throughout the year. However, average winter temperatures do dip into the 30's and occasionally into the 20's overnight, so it's important to protect your Idaho home from the elements.

Keep your home in tip-top shape throughout the winter by beginning the job in autumn. One of the first things you should do is have your furnace inspected. It's important to ensure that your furnace is operational, energy efficient and of-course, safe. Have a HVAC professional come out and have a look. The repairman will clean the furnace, change the filter, check for leaks and unhealthy gases and ensure everything is operating as it should.

Rock climbing

My life isn't ordinary because I don't live in an ordinary place. I toss my gear into the hatchback and jump into the seat, ready to take on the challenges of the cliff face just above Boise, Idaho. I've been hooked to the natural terrain the Boise Valley offers ever since my first climb here, over two years ago. As I drive along the winding, scenic pathway up to the Lucky Peak Reservoir towards my favorite spot, the Black Cliffs, my heart races with anticipation.

I remind myself again to thank the Boise Idaho native, who convinced me that the best place to get my excess energy out was right there at home with him, the region's headquarters for all things recreational. It is available for all in some way or another.  It's thick in the air. It

Idaho is a fairly big place. It comes close to cutting the country in half on the United State’s western side. It is by no means the largest state in the country, though because Idaho is so tall, it inhabits a large variety of different kinds of terrain and land. Alternatively, if you ask pretty much anyone about Idaho, they will say that there is not much there. Despite its size, Idaho is one of the least populous states in the states. There are parts of the state where you can go for miles and miles without coming across anyone. However, while it is still pretty unpopulated in comparison to parts of the rest of the country, Idaho is not a barren wasteland. There some major urban centers with large populations, one of those being Boise, the capital

The North End of Boise was the first suburban development in Boise. It was first built in 1878 and it only stretched across a couple of blocks. In 1891 more people began to move to the area and they created a twenty-five-year boom in home construction. The people that were moving to this area were of conservative means and the homes were not extravagant but they hold a certain charm and they are now popular acres to go and check out the old houses that were built at the starting of the city of Boise. The benefit of this area that a lot of people are drawn to is that it is a suburban area that has a great school district and has all the benefits of living close to other people but unlike most modern suburbs the homes are all differently styled and

Boise is located in the southwestern part of Idaho about 55 miles from the border of Oregon along the I-84 corridor. The capital city of Idaho, is the City of Boise, and is also the largest city in Idaho with a population of more than 223,000. The City of Boise has several suburb cities that have grown to the point that there is not much distinction between where one starts and the other begins but is more or less a continuous trail of neighborhoods and business centers from one end of the Treasure Valley to the other.

The housing industry has been taking a strange turn over the last half a decade and that turn is called the Tiny House. This hot new housing fad has crept into almost every community around the country causing everyone to ask not only what they are and why they even exist, but also if they should buy a tiny house too. Today we are going to take the bull by the horns and try to really dive into this subject and figure out what exactly is going on here.

What are tiny houses?

There are several options available for people looking to buy a home. Buying an existing home is an option.

There are few professions in America as exciting, vital, and misunderstood as the real estate agent. They do quite a bit for our communities, helping us to buy and sell homes and advising us in matters of real estate investing. However, despite their value, there are quite a few people buying homes without an agent. While this is completely legal and not impossible by any means, it does present quite a few problems that a lot of people do not foresee. Buying a home without an agent can actually make the process much harder, and, in some cases, could end up costing you more money than it would have cost to hire an agent in the first place. So, in order to dispel rumors and explain what the home buying process would look like with and without and agent,
