Reina family finally calls Boise home this Christmas | CBH Homes

Reina Family Finally Calls Boise Home

You know the stories, the ones that bring you warm fuzzies. The ones that remind you, this is why we are here. This is one of those. No tears are necessary, just pure joy for the Reina Family.1000-sales
As we recently celebrated our 1,000th sale with this awesome picture, we also realized that this sale was more than just a number. It was a dream come true for a very deserving family.



Meet the Reina family.

A military family with 3 beautiful girls, ready to set their roots down in Boise, Idaho. They’ve been renting for the past year, the girls sharing rooms, and were finally ready to make the move into owning their very own home! Bring in Cindy Zachman, their Realtor from Silver Hawk Realty, who took to the task of finding this family the home they’ve been looking for. When Cindy brought the Reina family to CBH and we heard their story, we had to share. This is what they sent us:


Hi, we are the Reinas, we just moved to Boise a year and half ago in hopes to bring up our daughters in a family oriented city. And Boise brings just that. We have been renting for the past year and half and currently live in Charter Pointe. We are neighbors to Devonshire, who has quickly became a desirable place for us to live. Michael and I have been re-married for the past 13 years and we have 3 beautiful girls together, 18 yr old, 11 yr old and 2 year old going on 3. Our dream is to put our roots down here and own a home in Boise, ID.

I  always wanted a front porch and my husband always wanted a 1 story and out of all the models we saw we all fell in love with the very last one the McCall. It fits all of our needs and budget. And we all love it and cannot wait to live in it. Michael is an Army Veteran and we are so excited to finally use our VA Loan on this home for the first time. CBH has been so easy to work with and has been a joy! Thank you CBH for making all of our home dreams come true!!

We have been super blessed to have the most amazing awesome Realtor, Cindy Zachman from Silver Hawk Realty. She has been such a blessing to us and to work with, and has helped us in more ways then one. I highly recommend her in your search for a new home.

The Reina Family had just a few requests to complete their dream home. Most importantly being a single story. Michael, the father, has had several medical procedures on his hips, back and shoulders. Stairs are very difficult and painful for him.  Adrienne, always wanted that front porch and knew if all of these things could come together, then their family could be really happy.

Why buy new, why buy CBH?

Going through the building process can be scary and at times stressful, we get it! Adrienne told us, “Going in I was very hesitant to buy a new home. I thought ‘oh my gosh, this is going to be so stressful’. But it has been smooth.”  The large selection, workable financing and the location we’re exactly what they were looking for. They were so excited to find everything on their wish list in a brand new place where no one has ever lived before.

What really struck us was when Adrienne said, “Buying a new home gives such a sense of accomplishment. And since it’s new, you don’t have to settle for less. There’s just something about buying ‘new’. It’s yours. No one else has ever owned it before.” We couldn’t agree more.

These are the stories that remind us, this is what new home construction is all about. Making dreams come true for families. This holiday season we’re adding the Reina family to the top of our grateful list and along with that, love wins. Every time.

Own versus Rent | CBH Homes

It’s on every renters or first time buyers mind, do I own versus rent? CBH Homes will be the first to tell you OWN is the only way to go, but let’s get to the details on why.

Own versus Rent

Many people may think, “I can’t afford to own a home”. We’re here to tell you, YOU CAN! Check these numbers out:

When you rent, $1,000 per month can get you a whopping 800 sq. ft. apartment in Meridian, Idaho. Here’s what else you can look forward to in an apartment:

  • Zero Equity (your landlord gets all the money)
  • No Yardcbh-homes-blog-treasure-valley-market-appartment
  • Shared Walls
  • Deposits (that you’ll hopefully get back)
  • One Parking Spot (if you’re lucky)

When you buy CBH Homes, $1,000 per month can put you into a 2,710 sq. ft. shiny, new, awesome home in Meridian, Idaho. Don’t forget all the other perks of owning a home:

  • An Investment (put money back in your pocket)
  • Your Own Yardcbh-homes-blog-treasure-valley-market-home
  • Room for everything
  • A Garage (say goodbye to scraping those windows)
  • No Landlord (go on and have a pet or two)
  • Tax Write Offs (thanks Uncle Sam)


Still not sure if buying is for you? Let these homeowners show you how it feels, all in one picture:


Joy, love, excitement, happiness, ownership, the list could go on for the feelings you have when you finally own your own brand new CBH home. Say bye, bye to gross carpet, mildew bathrooms, and used appliances.

Are you thinking, this is all great but I can’t afford $1,000 a month? That brings us to our next topic. Let’s put it this way, drive until you qualify.CBH Homes Drive until you Qualify

We totally get it. Location is number one on the list when it comes to finding your new home. Boise or Meridian might be your top picks but they’re also at a high price point.

Tully Park in Meridian Introduces NEW Outdoor Gym | CBH Homes

Citizens of Meridian – get excited for the NEW outdoor gym in Tully Park! We were blessed to be able to be apart of the Tully Park Outdoor Gym Ribbon Cutting Monday afternoon.cbh-homes-tully-park-outdoor-gym

Why a new outdoor gym?

The Meridian Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council led the project as they raised money, researched and also conceived this innovative new park amenity. Their goal to encourage citizens of all ages to exercise. As we all know exercise can reduces stress. On top of that it can boost those happy chemicals and help sharpen memory. Furthermore, exercise can get the creative juices flowing. Here’s what Steve Siddoway, Meridian Parks & Recreation Director believes:

“An outdoor gym is something residents have said they wanted, and we are happy to make this dream a reality,” stated Meridian Parks and Recreation Director Steve Siddoway. “What makes it even more unique is the collaboration with the members of MYAC to make it happen.”

What equipment can I find at Tully Park?

To name a few of the outdoor gym equipment at the park, we’ll start with the power tower that can be used for dips, leg raises, pull ups and more! The lateral pull down, chest press, and row, can give you that upper body workout you crave. Don’t miss the elliptical machine that will get your heart pumping.  If you’re needing to catch some fresh air, get your workout on, or simply play around, be sure to checkout Tully Park!

Meridian Mayor Tammy de Weerd and CBH Homes’ Vice President, Ronda Conger, posed for a snapshot while the kids tested out their handiwork.


Lastly, checkout the sponsors plaque and give it up to those who made it possible. Thank you to Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation, Conger Management Group, CBH Homes (woop woop), Flatwork LLC, Sunroc Corporation, Clements Conrete, and Brundage Bone!

Tully Park

Located at 2500 N Linder Road in Meridian, is a 18.675 acre park that boasts many amenities and features. From Baseball/softball,  playground, a large skate park and picnic shelter, this park has it all. The City of Meridian is proud to announce it’s first ever, outdoor gym! Go on and get your full body workout all while catching some fresh air.
