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.

A Structure Worth Saving

Mina and Karen bought their latest house in the Bates-Hendricks neighborhood for only $4,500. When they see inside, they soon realize why it was so inexpensive. From the termite-infested walls to the faulty foundation, the structure is barely standing on its own. Leave it to Mina and Karen to bring this abandoned wreck back to life!

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.
