Good pics, can't believe you got so close to the deer.
No Bambi's here, just some closeups of 1715 N 7th. Clearly a tear down. What am I basing my opinion on? 25 years of remodeling experience. Those trees someone wants to save? Three rotten black locusts (trash trees) probably infected by borers and I'll bet money on that. The one overhanging the sidewalk is a safety hazard. One large Siberian Elm (maybe American Elm) in the back which has been poorly pruned probably rendering it a hazard.
As it sits, one could not possibly make money renting it due to high property taxes and homeowner's insurance. Insurance companies are on the warpath as of late. I can't imagine an owner occupy situation either. It would be environmental folly to waste brand new resources to remodel this place.
In case you missed it, here's the Historic Preservation Commission's denial of request to demo this house: http://pdsonline.cityofboise.org/pds...04031554485090
Bonus Pic: Right down the street, how they get the permit for this? Historic Overlay probably made them do this for the permit. If I'm not mistaken, jacking the house is about $12,000.
Bonus bonus pic, quick stitched pano, sorry about the colors,
