A Neighborhood Eyesore That's a Horrible Before Becomes an Amazing After

After purchasing a house from the city for only $4,000, Mina Starsiak and Karen E. Laine know they might have a lot of work ahead of them. But when they discover detrimental water damage, horrific smells and questionable water lines from years of abandonment, they brace themselves for the worst. Foundation issues cause a wobbly and dangerous second story, but the Bates-Hendricks neighborhood is up and coming, and they want to ensure an everlasting impression by turning this house into a neighborhood treasure.
