The Custom Furniture Business: Creating Beautiful and Timeless Designs
Small businesses are the soul of America

More people are interested in buying locally made products than ever before. You can capitalize on many consumers’ return to local shopping by emphasizing that all components of your furniture are made in the United States, or in your town or area. The same applies to handmade goods. Individuals who are tired of mass-produced goods are often the same people who are interested in buying locally. Given this climate, it is a good time to start a handmade furniture business.

Midcentury modern with original kitchen asks $500K

Located in Boise, Idaho

Located in the northern section of Boise, Idaho, this cute three-bedroom, two-bath home offers midcentury style on a spacious lot. Built in 1953, the home sits on .38 acres but backs to public lands for the feeling of a much larger yard. This also provides access to an extensive hiking and biking trail system right out the back door, a major perk of the property’s location.

Inside, the 2,954-square-foot home boasts plenty of original features, including original blond wood cabinets, red kitchen countertops, and hardware. The kitchen also boasts a helpful exterior pass-through to the patio, making entertaining a cinch. And the patio is created thanks to a large overhanging roof with a unique skylight above, making the space both protected and airy.

The living room gets plenty of light from large windows, and a wood-burning fireplace with adjacent built-ins is a focal point. A second gas fireplace in the basement creates another area to relax. Love what you see? 2816 West Hill Road is on the market now for $499,900.
