Next up on HGTV series Boise Boys? Permit filings show possibilities

Timber and Love founders Luke Caldwell and Clint Robertson are at work on the second season of HGTV’s Boise Boys.

The home makeover show will feature thirteen episodes in its second season. That’s up from just six that debuted in 2018. The show is set to debut tomorrow – on Wednesday, April 24th.

The first season premise had the pair scouting Boise for a house to buy, remodel and resell.

Permit filings with the City of Boise give clues on which homes could get the treatment for the second year of Boise Boys.

Possible Boise Boys season two projects

N. 6th St.

In August, Timber and Love filed plans for this house on 6th St. in Boise’s North End.

The permit called for a “full gut-to-the-studs remodel and 2nd floor addition.” It also notes an “originally covered porch is being restored.”

This project carries a value of $250,000 according to permit records. Before the makeover, the house contained 1,631 square feet with three bedrooms and 2 and a half baths. The remodel calls for a total of four bedrooms and two bathrooms, and the addition of 500 square feet on the second level.

The property changed hands in 2016, again in 2017 to Invest in Boise Inc., owned by Caldwell, and again in 2018 to its current owner.

These details track with the HGTV description of Boise Boys’ second season fifth episode – Vaulted Aspirations:

Clint and Luke take a single-level Craftsman triplex with a pyramid-shaped dome in the city’s popular North End and convert it from a confusing maze-like layout into an open, single family home with a brand new second story. To balance the history with a more modern look and feel, they open up the kitchen/dining area to the living space and decorate the great room with simple yet elegant Scandinavian decor.

Flume St.

Timber and Love applied to revamp a 1,014 square foot home in Boise’s East End neighborhood. The home was originally built in 1900, according to Ada County Assessor records.

The $100,000 project removed all interior walls and updated the floorplan from a two bedroom, one bath format to a three bedroom, two bath configuration. It also finished the previously unfinished basement and revamped the exterior.

According to Zillow, the home was listed for sale by owner in late 2017 for $250,000. It was removed from the market on June 8th with a listing price of $215,000, and became owned by Aloha Andrea Properties, LLC.

W. Quail Point Ct.

This project in the Boise foothills got a major revamp for a huge 4-bedroom, 2.5-bath home measuring more than 3,400 square feet. The large 3,409 square foot home got a complete top-to-bottom revamp valued at $300,000 according to the building permit.

Building crews reconfigured the floorplan to significantly expand and open up the kitchen, plus adding a large pantry and laundry room. They also reconfigured a formal dining area and added a large office. The master bedroom saw a size upgrade, new walk-in closet and expanded bathroom. Nearly every corner of the home saw a reconfiguration.

W. Collister Dr.

This home shows up on Timber and Love’s website as recently remodeled – and sold. Permits with the city of Boise show electrical, plumbing and mechanical upgrades – but no overall building permit. This could mean crews made more modest upgrades.

It’s a 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath home in the Collister neighborhood. Originally built in 1950, the home sits on a half-acre lot. Re/Max listed in 2016 for $189,000 – and Timber and Love listed it in late 2018 for $399,890 – more than double.

The details on this one match HGTV’s description for the show’s second episode – Willow Tree Farmhouse:

Luke and Clint tackle a 1950s farmhouse and treehouse they’ve purchased on Boise’s west side. This tricked-out home gets a new kitchen complete with church-pew seating and porcelain brick tile on the living room fireplace that matches the kitchen backsplash. The kid’s room is stylized with whitewashed lap siding and functional French doors separate the master bedroom from the new backyard deck.

Before remodel crews swept in, the lot had a collection of trees crowding the home.

After the updates, the home sported a completely new look.

W. State St. – Eagle

This home popped up on the Timber and Love Instagram feed in March with just a single image of a floor.

Property records indicate this is a 4 bedroom, 1.25 bathroom house with 1,131 square feet of space. Builders first constructed this home in 1934. The house sits near Eagle Island State Park off Highway 44.

A records request with the City of Eagle doesn’t show any building permits in more than a decade for the property, so updates were likely cosmetic or didn’t require a permit.
