Next Episode of Boise Boys is
Polar opposite friends Luke and Clint take an unconventional approach to house flipping in their hometown of Boise, Idaho. While refined designer Luke likes to reach for the stars, rugged contractor Clint remains focused on their bottom line. With an endless inventory of old houses to choose from, the only decision this dynamic duo needs to make is which house to transform next.
Luke and Clint purchase a beat-up, early 1900s triplex in Boise's North End with plans to convert it into a vintage, single-family home. After quickly blowing through their $200,000 renovation budget to repair fire damage and lead paint, they must regroup with a fresh plan. Fortunately, they find pleasant surprises throughout the structure, including a vaulted ceiling and a brick chimney they leave exposed to add a touch of old-world charm.
Luke and Clint purchase a midcentury modern house with architecture reminiscent of Hollywood Hills in a Mesa neighborhood overlooking Boise. Although they come across problems during demolition that require some serious budgeting and structural engineering feats, they give the house a glitzy, Hollywood-style makeover complete with a huge master closet, sleek home office and stunning master suite feature wall.
Luke and Clint expand their business into the hipster town of Garden City -- an up-and-coming area of Boise replete with coffee houses, breweries and man buns. When a farmhouse along the Boise River goes on the market, they jump on the opportunity to give it a Southwestern vibe. The guys install custom-made wrought-iron railings inspired by the existing arches on the second-story landing, commission a local artist to design and create ceramic art for the walls and build a custom bookcase for an upstairs reading nook decorated with cacti and a cattle skull. Along with these unique features are a mountain-themed accent wall and a horse-trough tub in the master suite resulting in a collection of oddities that could prove to be a hard sell. Other issues, including rotten floor joists on the second floor, require even more time and money from the guys who were merely planning on selling the farmhouse but may end up having to "sell the farm" instead.
Luke overspends the budget outbidding hundreds of eager developers on a neglected Boise River house. Forced to start from scratch, they need to go bigger than big to make their money back and see a profit. Luke sees a grand opportunity to design a home that is truly unique, but more surprising than the finished design is the subsequent homebuyer.
