A turn-of-the-century home in Boise, Idaho, was revamped into a modern masterpiece and one of its unique style points can be found in the bathroom, thanks in part to Viega.
Pat Falls with Pipeman, Inc., in Boise, used Viega ProPress Stainless fittings to install an eye-catching fixture in the shower. It was loosely modeled after a picture the owner had seen of another unique shower, and the versatility of Viega fittings allowed Falls to build something one-of-a-kind.
“The house is a cross between the old, original look and something contemporary,” Falls said. “They wanted something that was kind of an eye-pop in the shower. I ordered a bunch of parts and found some valves and wall brackets and just mixed and matched. I’ve used a lot of ProPress Stainless in geothermal water applications and had good experience.
“I could try and thread things but I knew it wouldn’t look great, so I suggested the pressed stainless because I knew I could make it any configuration I wanted and it would be easy to follow the lines of the shower.”
The finished product is just one aspect of the home, which boasts a spiral staircase that leads to the lofted master retreat and four multifaceted outdoor living/dining spaces. Originally constructed as part of the Boise City Original Township, the early 1900s home is for sale but could possibly become a vacation rental property, too.
