Mina and Karen return to Indy's "best-kept secret" neighborhood to transform a big brown eyesore into a stylish and color-filled home with an all-new floor plan.
Karen and Mina purchase an abandoned eyesore in Indy's historic Bates-Hendricks district for $4,500 (!) then totally transform it, inside and out.
After purchasing a very small house near downtown Indianapolis for only $25,000, Mina Starsiak and Karen E. Laine have their work cut out for them as they continue their mission of renovating the city 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 it's a solid buy for its next owners, but they need to keep their renovation costs low enough to price the house to attract new buyers.
Budgeting is a must when Mina Starsiak and Karen E. Laine splurge on an old house they've had their eyes on for a while. 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. They want to 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.
The price is high, but the location is prime, so Mina Starsiak and Karen E. Laine decide to take a chance and invest in a little house in the Fountain Square neighborhood of Indianapolis. But at only 950 square feet, this small house has some big issues. The mother-daughter team runs into trouble when sagging floors lead to an unsteady structure. Despite the problems, they forge ahead, intending to create a more functional floor plan that will turn the house into a charming bungalow perfect for any first time homebuyer.
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.
Karen E. Laine is caught off-guard when her daughter, Mina Starsiak, informs her that she's purchased their next reno project for a very high price. The rundown house may be expensive, but the location can't be beat -- it's right next door! Although Mina is excited to have control over a project so close to home, the old house is huge, and its problems are too. But dirt, smells and sketchy construction have never stopped this mother-daughter duo. They tackle this renovation one step at a time, and not even a near disaster on demo day will keep Mina and Karen from creating a beautiful space to attract wonderful new neighbors.
Mina has mixed feelings when she agrees to remodel her dad's house in the suburbs of Indianapolis. Her childhood home definitely needs an update, but her father may still need some convincing. Change is not his favorite thing when it comes to his house. He wants to open up his space with a brand new kitchen, stairway and deck, while also updating the great room and dining room. Although this renovation doesn't involve tearing the house all the way to the studs, Dad's ideas about decor could make this renovation Mina's most stressful one yet.
Mina Starsiak and Karen E. Laine bought their latest house in the Bates-Hendricks neighborhood of Indianapolis for only $4,500. When they see the inside, they 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 as they strip the house down to the studs and then build it back up again to create an elegant and spacious home that's ready for new owners.
After purchasing a duplex for $15,000, Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak get to work turning the cramped space with two sides into a single family home. Reimagining the floor plan is easy -- it's staying on budget that's a challenge with this project. It's located in an outlying neighborhood of Indianapolis that's still in transition, which could have an impact on its selling price, so the mother-daughter duo has to be mindful of the budget. But with smart purchases and creative styling, Mina and Karen make it one of a kind.
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 women be able to pull off a successful renovation for this up-and-coming neighborhood?
Mina and Karen reach outside of their comfort zone with a house on the edge of the Bates Hendricks neighborhood. They're concerned about the location, and when they discover that the house is festering with cockroaches, they fear that they may not come out with a profit in the end. But with smart planning, a little love and a lot of hard work, Mina and Karen are hopeful they can bring new life to the neighborhood with a charming renovation.
Karen and Mina team up with their friend Josh on a high-stakes property in Fountain Square. What looks promising at first glance quickly turns when during their initial walk-through they find some of the previous owner's pet snakes still slithering throughout the house. The news only goes downhill from there when half the foundation suddenly disappears, but once finished this Fountain Square beauty is worth all the trouble.
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 excited to be back on Sanders Street to check out an old house they got a bargain on. The house already has great charm and plenty of curb appeal, but its large size is intimidating. The already huge project then comes with age-related issues like rotten wood, antiquated windows and many hidden treasures that are common in older houses. Can Mina and Karen return this home to its full potential?
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 women have disagreements on room placement and paint colors, they hope all the hard work in this decrepit home pays off with a buyer.
Mina has second thoughts that a charmless, boxy house bought from the city for $4,000 might have been a bad idea. But Karen sees the potential and convinces Mina that they'll be able to transform this 'giant cube' into an adorable single family home. Even though it's undesirable at first glance, Mina and Karen strip it down and turn this boring, rectangular house into a beautiful work of art, truly adding value to the neighborhood.
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 take on a renovation project for an optimistic client who bought a duplex with intentions of renovating it himself. The home is in a historic and very established neighborhood that would mean easy profit if the job is done right, but challenges with the historical preservation commission and a possible voodoo curse threaten to slow things down. Will the ladies be able to overcome such strange obstacles?
Mina and Karen purchase a crumbling house in the Bates-Hendricks neighborhood, only to find out it's the first house they can't save. With a clean slate, Mina designs a white beauty with new buyers already in mind. Karen and Mina add unique features and lots of charm to hopefully help their longtime friends find a new home.
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 Fountain Square. Not only is the house small, it has a funky layout with nonfunctional spaces, forcing the women to build an addition on the back while trying to stay on budget.
