Thomas Logan

Boise, ID
  • Bldg system

    Innovative Light-Frame

  • No. Of Stories


  • Sq. footage


Developed to help fill a critical need for housing in Boise’s downtown core, Thomas Logan is an attractive, brick-clad building that fits perfectly within the urban neighborhood. Defying the typically unremarkable design stereotypes of affordable housing, this striking development provides homes for 60 families; 45 of the units are designated for people making 30 to 60 percent of the county’s median income.

The design team chose affordable, quality engineered wood products, and the contractor utilized off-site prefabrication of the wood-framed walls and stairs to speed and simplify installation. Pre-framed unit demising walls were doubled, with a one-inch air gap between, to provide condo-quality sound transmission. They also added big windows—nearly floor to ceiling in some places—to make the units feel more spacious. The wood I-joists and other engineered wood products used throughout the project provide uniform strength, dimensional stability and durability for a high-quality living experience.
