Karen and Mina are back on Woodlawn Avenue to rescue a new build that has been abandoned. While the home's basic structure is built, the bones have been left for dead. Mina and Karen see the amazing possibilities in this 2,200 square foot home and already have the perfect buyer in mind. Issues arise, however, when window delivery is delayed and the trim carpenters quit mid-job. Will the girls be able to pull off a successful renovation for this up-and-coming neighborhood?
Mina and Karen snag a four-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex for only $4,000. But with one of the worst foundations they've ever seen combined with unsafe floor joists on the second floor, Mina expects to spend upwards of $200,000 on the renovation. When Tad demos the chimney and puts a hole in the roof, the women grow more concerned about their budget. They hope that their attention to detail in the beautifully finished single-family home will pay off.
Mina and Karen are welcomed into their new duplex with piles of clothes, two toilets and two feet of water in the basement. Although the girls have disagreements on room placement and paint colors, they hope all the hard work in this decrepit home pays off with a buyer.
Mina and Karen buy a little white house on a hill with potential to be a real charmer in the Bates-Hendricks neighborhood. The home has a great floor plan but it has serious foundation issues and is in desperate need of a facelift. During construction, a former owner of the house stops by to see how much her old home has changed. Will she be impressed with Mina and Karen's transformation?
Mina and Karen are back in the Bates-Hendricks neighborhood with a brand new project. The home is in a fantastic location, is close to everything and has a ton of square footage. Despite its good qualities, however, the home is dirty, ugly and is going to be a heaping handful of a job. This eyesore has three colors of brown paint coating the outside and is a confusing labyrinth on the inside. A house this size will ultimately require more construction workers, more hammers and ultimately more danger. Will they be able to give this home a new floor plan that's perfect for single-family living?
Mina and Karen buy a tiny, Victorian-style home in need of a serious facelift on the outskirts of the Indianapolis community of Fountian Square. Not only is the house small, it has a funky layout with nonfunctional spaces, forcing the girls to build an addition on the back while trying to stay on budget.
Mina and Karen purchase a tricky home in a transitional Indianapolis neighborhood. The location is a sizable former office space with no discernable bedrooms so the girls are excited to utilize the blank canvas. The girls quickly fall in love with the project and start bringing out the space's charm with outdoor corbels, a beautiful fireplace, an antique structural column and real wooden floors. While their finished product is beautiful, they may soon realize they've gone too far in that neighborhood -- and maybe too far over their budget.
