Do i have to pay capital gains on triplex homestead/rental property

I lived in a house for the 11 years I owned the property. It was a house with a small duplex attached. I completely remodeled the house and put minor work into the rentals, now I am paying capital gains tax on all when the value of the house is what made the price of the property go up in value? How can I work this out to show the value of the house increased the price of the property - not so much the rentals?
