BOISE, Idaho — What do you get when you introduce a local interior designer to a Texas-raised and Boise living contractor and real estate agent? The “Boise Boys.”

The “Boise Boys” are some of America’s favorite television personalities, and now almost two seasons later, the “boys” sat down with 6 On Your Side to talk about where they’ve been and where they’re heading.

Luke Caldwell is a Boise native who grew up in the North End. He’s seen the area change drastically over the years, but he doesn’t seem to mind the growth. In our sit down interview with him and Clint, Luke tells our reporter, “this building that we’re in right now, I use to buy my converse here.” Now, all these years later, he can say, “to now own this building as a business and to be successful and be contributing to our community and adding value…it’s an amazing thing to do.”

Clint Robertson, on the other hand, is from Texas, but ten years ago, he and his family adopted Boise as their new home. Clint says there’s no better place to live, “for Luke, it’s by birth. For me, it’s by choice.”

The dynamic duo met over five years ago at Whole Foods and then again was re-introduced by a mutual friend, and well, after that, the rest is history.

A few years later, the two men keep busy with family, a thriving business, television show, and as of recently, a new business venture, “we’re excited about is the reality office we just opened it up downtown.” The two say it’s an old firehouse in the North End. It was one of the projects on their show. Luke being from the North End and owning a firehouse in his old neighborhood is “pretty cool to own a fire station and what’s neat about it is I went to north junior high, I use to walk by that place every day on my way home from school.”

Make sure to catch the “Boise Boys” Made in Idaho story on Good Morning Idaho Friday at 5 and 6 a.m.
