The “Hallmark” Model by Boise Idaho New Home Builder, Hallmark Homes

Our most popular model over the last couple of years has been, by far, our “Hallmark” model.  We designed this single level home with many design features that we felt were important in a new home including the following:

Welcoming Covered Courtyard

We wanted a front courtyard that could be used year round, including the sometimes cold and wet Idaho winters.  We designed a large courtyard that is completely covered to give protection from wind and rain.  We also designed into this courtyard the optional fireplace which gives the courtyard a warm, “in home” feeling.  This courtyard truly extends your living space to the outdoors.  It can be used for anything from relaxing and reading a book to watching tv, or even just chillin’ in a hammock.

Large Great Room

The “Hallmark” was designed with a large great room that is perfect for gatherings with family and friends.  The custom built bookshelves, large fireplace and 11’ ceilings make this room comfortable and inviting!

Flex Room

The “Hallmark” has 3 large bedrooms, but we wanted to design a 4th room that could be used as a 4th bedroom, a large home office, TV room, craft room, exercise room, etc.  We call this the “flex room”.



 Work Center

One of my favorite things in this home is the work center.  This is a small area that can be used as a small office, computer desk, and/or homework area for the kids.  It’s got plenty of desk space and storage but takes up a very small area of the home.

Large Covered Back Patio

Lastly, we wanted to create a nice back yard with a large covered patio.  We also include a BBQ natural gas stub out on every patio so that there will be no more trips to fill or exchange the propane tank!
