‘Boise Boys’ is an American reality TV show that centers around two pals, Clint Robertson and Luke Caldwell, who are into the house flipping business. The show first premiered on May 21, 2017 on HGTV. Robertson is a builder as well as a licensed contractor, while Caldwell is the home designer. The show showcases some of the house renovation they do in their hometown, Boise, Idaho. The duo buys and sells these renovated homes through their company named Timber and Love.
Notably, HGTV is popular for shows about houses and living. They have shows like ‘Log Cabin Living‘ and ‘Hawaii Life‘, which are fan favorites. However, the network also has several shows that follow the formula of juxtaposing house renovations while showing the partnership between the renovators. These people are related to each other somehow; either they are friends or married, or siblings. Anyway, the focus is to show how two halves make a whole when it comes to presenting a united front and executing a vision to make each house as unique and appealing as possible. Some of these shows include ‘Flip or Flop‘, ‘Home Town‘, ‘Property Brothers‘, and ‘Hidden Potential‘. ‘Boise Boys’ is right up there with them. In the show, we get a glimpse into the dynamics of friendship and how it plays out in the personal lives of Luke and Clint.
Boise Boys Cast: Who is in it?
The main cast of ‘Boise Boys’ includes Luke Caldwell and Clint Robertson. Obviously, the duo is expected to return in the upcoming season since they are the prime focus of the show.
Luke and Clint are not alike at all and have their own unconventional and opposite approaches to renovations of houses. Luke is the refined designer who likes to reach for the stars, while Clint is the grounded one who cares about the bottom line of the renovation. One without the other would never have successfully renovated a house. Either the house’s renovation would stay within budget but lack originality, or it would be highly original and become a bottomless pit of spending. However, these two friends combine their artistic sensibility and pragmatism to make the renovations and the show a resounding success.
Boise Boys Plot: What is it about?
The plot of ‘Boise Boys’ is about Luke and Clint, who are best friends, and they have one goal – to make Boise beautiful one house at a time. Renovation requires art and level-headedness and this is what the duo bring to the table. ”We are both type A, hard-working and detailed-oriented,” says Clint. “While that combination can certainly lead to significant head-butting, we constantly strive to remember that each of us is there to serve the other, the home, the neighborhood and ultimately the families who will call our renovation ‘home.’”
Notably, the two met when they formed their company Timber and Love, the realty and design based firm in 2015. There has been no looking back since then for our boys from Boise, and the show ensures that we know them on a personal level. We are introduced to their families, which includes Robertson’s three children, and the six children of Caldwell, of whom four are special needs kids adopted from China. Luke and Clint are special as is their show since they discuss their successes as well as their failures. This gives a more authentic feel to it since realtors only advertise success stories, making the shows feel a bit staged.
