The Haiger House, discovered on 1303 E. Bannock St. in northeast Boise, reflects its Colonial Williamsburg style through many details replicate of the houses between 1600 and 1800, starting in Williamsburg, Virginia.
The Colonial Williamsburg style is characterized by symmetry throughout the house. The Haiger House makes a statement to viewers with its unique dormer windows, which are structural elements of a building that protrude from the plane of a sloping roof surface. Almost all Colonial Williamsburg styles contain wood and brick. An important feature, the cupola, completely distinguishes this carriage house from all the other houses on the street with its dome-shaped ornamental structure on top of the roof. The weather vein atop and the clock within the cupola convey the barn-like effect, greater achieving the authenticity of the house since farming was prevalent when the Colonial Williamsburg style emerged.
The architect chose to live in the house due to his appreciation of the meticulous construction and design. The house was built in 1981 but has been well maintained throughout its life. This is exemplified with the unusually high valuation on the house for only 992 square feet in total.
