Hummel Architects Announces Partnership with BVHfH

Hummel Architects is excited to be partnering with Boise Valley Habitat for Humanity to design, pro bono, a new residence for a deserving Habitat family. It’s a project we believe in and giving back to our community is a core part of Hummel. Year-round, you can find our dedicated staff at community events and in neighborhood schools: mentoring, teaching, volunteering, donating, designing and even swinging a hammer for a cause. Getting involved and sharing our expertise is important to us and we look forward to designing a beautiful, sustainably built home for Habitat for Humanity and a hard-working Idaho family.

Originally established in Boise in 1896, Hummel Architects specializes in education, healthcare and government facility design in the northwest. For more than 100 years Hummel has shaped environments, touching the lives of countless people, driven by a standard of excellence set up by its founders.

Thank You Volunteers - 120 Years and Counting!

The normal silence of our office space is being interrupted this morning by the sounds of construction or, more accurately, demolition. With the help of six volunteers Construction Manager Paul Thompson is updating our hallway and meeting room. Once again a project needs to be done and a group of Habitat volunteers shows up ready to work on behalf of our affiliate. The simple fact is … without our corps of dedicated volunteers we would not be a viable entity.

Every day volunteers assist the operation of our Office, ReStore and Construction. Family Partners visit Habitat Families to help prepare them for homeownership.

Evening In the Garden 2018

Mark your calendar…June 14th is the date for our 12th annual Evening in the Garden at FarWest Landscape & Garden Center located at 5728 West State Street in Boise. This will be an evening like no other with the doors opening at 5:30. We are in the process of collecting items for both the silent and live auctions and this year you will be able to view them online prior to the Event so that you may identify that must-have item. All items in both auctions are enjoying major upgrades.

 

Due to your positive responses, Goodwood Barbecue Company will be catering the evening once again and you will also be able to enjoy the fine wines from Indian Creek Winery. Sockeye Brewing Company will be on hand with their wide variety of beers. Our new professional charity auctioneer Larry Flynn promises an enjoyable evening and our guest MC’s Kevin and Brenda Mee from the BULL will keep you well entertained for the entire Event.
