If you love Property Brothers, you're going to flip for this new reno show on DIY Network. , or Rustic Reno for short, follows two brothers (sound familiar?) named Brock and Chase Jurgensen, of Prior Lake, Minnesota, as they restore old cabins ("everything from abandoned tin huts to abandoned boat houses," said Chase in a ) and repurpose run-down barns in the area.
But their style — and the show's premise — is completely different from Jonathan and Drew's. "We've both been cabin boys our entire lives. We grew up on lakes and have always loved what Minnesota and Wisconsin has to offer," Chase explained in the video. They were raised around construction and went into the business together in 2006, teaming up on projects in the Twin Cities.
The pilot premiered last spring, but the nine-episode series is set to start back up again on Tuesday, July 11 at 10 p.m. EST. Before you tune in, here's everything you should know about the hosts.
1. They're brothers.
And there's a pretty strong family resemblance. Though people often mistake them for twins (one reason they now wear different beard styles), Brock is two years older than Chase.
2. Construction runs in the family.
You might say they were born to renovate. As kids, the brothers would help their dad with his business.
"We've always worked together, ever since we were kids, and we're best friends at the same time so it's the family element of it," Brock said in an interview with . "I think we're so passionate about it because it's right down our alley."
3. But they didn't go to school for it.
It might surprise you to learn that the Jurgensens didn't go to college for construction engineering or management. Brock studied art, while Chase studied economics.
4. Besides being TV hosts, Brock and Chase are business owners.
Chip and Joanna have and , Ree Drummond has the , and Erin and Ben Napier have . Similarly, Brock and Chase own businesses. Chase, a licensed contractor, owns and handles the large builds with his crew, while Brock creates furniture out of reclaimed wood through his sister — or should we say brother — company, .
5. They were discovered on another DIY Network show.
You might recognize them from their appearances as contractors on .
"The producers saw us and said, 'So you guys are brothers and you work that good together? OK, we need to talk,' and then 15 months later we're here," Brock told the publication.
6. They have truly fantastic facial hair.
Besides their construction skills, both brothers sport equally impressive beards. Their secret? Chase says he does a daily trim and uses the same shampoo for his head on his beard.
And underneath all that scruff, they're pretty darn handsome, too! One Facebook Live viewer even called them the "hot, buff Property Brothers"—though I think we can all agree that aren't too shabby, either!
7. Their style is rustic.
As you might surmise from the title of their show, the Jurgensens favor a rustic aesthetic. Think salvaged barnwood, , and even .
8. They're family men.
Chase has a young daughter, Darby, and just welcomed a son, Parks, with his wife, Shea, in May.
No word yet on whether or not Brock is single, but he does frequently share photos of his niece and his godson on his Instagram, so it seems he's just as good with kids as he is with woodworking. He also had a beloved bulldog named Hank, who sadly passed away recently.
9. The Midwestern men have serious state pride.
"Minnesota has always been the center of my heart. That sense of family will always be here," Chase said in a show preview. "A handshake or somebody's word is all you need in Minnesota."
10. And they hope to make their hometown proud.
One of the things the Jurgensens said they enjoyed most about the pilot was how well it represented their community and the people in it.
"I just hope the community around here is excited about us local boys trying to make a name for Savage and Prior Lake and we hope they enjoy it, that's kind of what it's there for," Chase told the American.
