Tiny House, Huge Transformation

After purchasing a very small house for only $25,000 near downtown Indianapolis, Mina Starsiak and Karen E Laine have their work cut out for them as they continue their mission of renovating Indy one house at a time. Built in 1880 and totaling only 512 square feet, the tiny house is sure to come with big problems. After the demo team tears it down to the studs, Mina and Karen get to work building it back up again, but bigger and better. Because the house is located in their own neighborhood of Fountain Square, the mother daughter team wants to ensure the house is a solid buy for its next owners. The question is, can they keep their renovation costs low enough to price the house to attract new buyers?

An Old Victorian House Gets a New Facelift

Budgeting is a must when Mina and Karen splurge on an old house they've had their eyes on for awhile. Inspired by its Victorian style, they have big plans for a massive makeover on this 2,100 square foot home. But this house has plenty of surprises in store for this mother daughter duo. Unlike their usual projects, the downstairs space is actually in decent shape, but it's the upstairs that poses a construction challenge. Can they turn a cramped attic space into a beautiful Master Suite? And faced with narrow stairs, missing woodwork and hours of wallpaper scraping, they hope their Victorian treasure proves in the end that she has something special worth saving.

New Clients in the Countryside

Mina and Karen's next home renovation project is far from a flip. This time they travel out of downtown Indianapolis and into the countryside to do a home renovation for new clients Mike and Karen Angle. The Angles have a big family but a house that feels very closed-off and they want help opening it up. Once the homeowners are out of the house and Mina's floor plan is squared away, the demo crew gets to work. Part of the plan is to add sliding glass doors and big windows to bring in more natural light. Just four weeks later, Mina and Karen are excited to invite the Angles back into their new open concept home that feels far more spacious.

Dimensional Tile Accent Wall in White Contemporary Living Room

This funky, contemporary living room has plenty of seating, with a large, contemporary sofa and two contemporary chairs. The focal point of this living space, though, is the accent wall. It has been created with dimensional tile to give this bright, neutral living room added depth. As seen on Good Bones.

This not only gives the space a focal point, but also allows more natural light into the space, making it feel bright and open. To add to the elegant, industrial design the team was going for, they added black and white artwork, a metal headboard, brown bed linens and dark end tables and lamp shades. To tie the space together and give it a pop of color, a green shag carpet adds comfort to this elegant, industrial master bedroom.

Dining Room with Modern Furnishings and Salvage Wall Art from Original Home

New, White Cabinets and Stainless Steel Dining Table in Bright, Contemporary Kitchen

As seen on HGTV's Good Bones, Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak removed a wall to enlarge this kitchen and bring it forward in the floor plan. The team added new, bright cabinets for plenty of storage and stainless steel appliances and dining table to make this space clean and modern. To give the kitchen a little color, teal dining chairs and live flowers were put in place, creating a warm, inviting contemporary kitchen.

Now that the barriers are gone, this home has an open concept first floor with a line of sight from the living room into the dining room and kitchen. Each of these spaces, then received an elegant, contemporary design, creating a contemporary, updated space.

Renovated Home's Open House Doubles as Gallery Showing for Local Artists

This home used to be a duplex before Good Bones' Mina and Karen reconfigures the entire first floor, removing walls to create an open floor plan and reworking the home's front entrance. When they put the home on the market, they not only staged the home with stylish, modern furniture, they had local artists display their work for the open house. The setup for the open house is featured in this photo.

Pantry Added to Large Kitchen in Restored Duplex

As sen on Good Bones, Karen and Mina wanted to create larger rooms throughout the first floor of this restored duplex, so they tore out the walls that separated the spaces, allowing for each room to be a little larger. The kitchen was no exception. This spacious layout includes plenty of counter space and storage, a bar and a pantry in the back of the space.
