An old church in the North End will soon see a conversion into a single-family home.
Permits filed by Cooper Kalisek of Boise show The Collective church at 1723 W. Eastman will get a makeover into a home. The building dates to 1927 and welcomed a variety of congregations over the years.
The Collective recently announced it would share the Hill City Church facility on Hill Rd. near the Bogus Basin downtown office.
The nearly 100-year-old church will get a $200,000 revamp, with a new garage on one side. A real estate listing showed the property for sale for $498,000 last year.
Construction crews will revamp the sanctuary and ground floor area with a large master bedroom, kitchen and living area. The home will come complete with a master closet with an integrated washer/dryer, plus a separate shoe closet. The great room will feature a large kitchen with bar seating for eight and more.
Two changes to the building – one for new windows, and one for a cover over the entry got a split decision from city planners. The new windows got approval at an administrative level, while the historic commission denied the new entryway cover.
