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.
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 find that "you get what you pay for" when they buy a bargain house for $5,000. At 730 square feet, it's their smallest home ever, but it's full of big challenges, including holes in the roof, holes in the floor and a rotting foundation supported by nothing more than a dirt pile and a car jack. Mina and Karen's goal is to create value but stay on budget while bringing this dilapidated little home back to a livable condition.
Mina Starsiak and Karen E. Laine take on an old shotgun-style home near downtown Indianapolis, and even though they've been renovating shotgun homes for years, this house is quite the stinker -- literally. Demo day becomes a test of bad smells they will never forget, and Mina's brother, Tad, learns the basics of framing a house and installing decorative wall tiles. Hoping to sell the home to their friend who owns a wedding dress studio, Mina and Karen tailor the decor to match her taste and create a DIY project from wedding dress material. But when they find out their renovated house isn't up to code, there's a chance they won't be able to finish it on time and on budget.
Mina and Karen venture just east of downtown Indianapolis to take on a two-story, worn-down home that's as risky as it is disgusting. The block hasn't been revitalized yet and between the massive sinkhole, caved-in roof and decomposing animals throughout, their walkthrough is almost impossible. The house has almost no sustainable foundation so the women get busy rebuilding from the ground up all while adding features that make it feel like the home has been on the block for decades.
Two Chicks and a Hammer's design assistant, MJ, and his husband recently bought their first home, and Mina and Karen want to make MJ's dreams a reality. The duo works to blend traditional and modern styles, but MJ may have to compromise to stay in budget.
Mina and Karen look to turn an old garage on one of their rental properties into a tiny home for Mina’s brother, Tad. With foundation issues and a mysterious broken pipe, this tiny home has massive issues that must be resolved before Tad can move in.
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.
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 and Karen purchase and an old townhome in the popular Bates-Hendricks neighborhood. After encountering dry rot and termites, the unpredictable roadblocks put a giant dent in their budget and on their attitudes toward the project. But just when all hope seems lost, a rare and valuable "treasure" found during the ceiling demolition might have them changing their tune about this troublesome townhome.
Mina and Karen revamp a historic brick house in a rising area of south Indianapolis. The house is in bad shape. Luckily, they have a healthy budget of $200,000 and they are going to need every dime. The ladies plan to increase the square footage with a two-story addition and create a whole new layout with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths.
Mina and Karen purchase a building with multiple condos, and to test the market, they're starting with a unit on the ground floor. They plan to knock down some walls to create an open kitchen and tackle the entire building's exterior. However, the whole project hangs in the balance when Karen tries to shimmy down an HVAC exchange with hilarious consequences.
Mina and Karen return to Old Southside to renovate the right side of their duplex townhome using a Greenwich Village design. Karen shares a major announcement about her position in the company, and the ramifications of that change quickly come to light.
Mina and Karen are called to help their friends transform their traditional home, but their ideas are dependent on the local historical society. They expand the dining room and kitchen, and convert the master into a gorgeous en suite.
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 and Karen are taking on a sprawling, 2,800-square-foot home with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a bonus space upstairs. While the three-story home is structurally sound, it needs a lot of work to make it ready to sell, and Mina and Karen have a whopping $275,000 renovation budget. The home has beautiful woodwork, paneling and a majestic staircase, but tensions flare as the women have differing opinions on how to approach its design and style.
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 buy a property in one of the most coveted and popular neighborhoods in Indianapolis. The incredible price only means more challenges as they quickly uncover some buried surprises that put the build on hold. When construction can continue, this four-bedroom home with an open floor plan and a bonus living space on the second floor will turn out to be their sweetest home yet ... if they can get past the fire code violations. With a bohemian-meets-modern vibe, Mina and Karen hope to attract a certain cute young couple that they hope will call it home.
Mina and Karen are back in Old Southside where they've purchased a hoarder house filled with garbage and hiding fire damage. As demo gets underway, they uncover a slew of other issues as they turn this trash-filled home into an updated Victorian beauty.
Mina and Karen take on the renovation of a century-old duplex in Indianapolis, Indiana. They decide to keep both units separate and begin the renovation with one townhome. The interior is in rough shape, and demolition exposes several troublesome issues, but the team can still see potential for a unique "Boho Industrial" vibe. With a budget of $150,000, they create an open-concept living space on the main floor and add a second full bathroom for maximum functionality. A bright white kitchen, sleek tile and exposed duct work completes the team's modern vision.
A couple that runs a nonprofit benefiting the Garfield Park neighborhood enlists Mina and Karen to make over one of their dilapidated properties. The team must work together to make sure the home comes in under budget and helps an artist in need.
Mina and Karen begin work on a home in a new neighborhood called Garfield Park. With a tight budget and narrow profit margin, the team must harness their creative juices to turn the tiny property into a boho-themed bungalow worthy of an aspiring artist.
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.
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 have purchased their most expensive house to date, in the most desirable neighborhood in downtown Indianapolis. The size of the house and its great location could mean a selling price close to $500,000 if they play their cards right. After the massive demolition is complete, Mina and Karen get to work designing the new layout, which includes an extra loft space on the second floor and vaulted ceilings in the kitchen. For the design aesthetic, they go with an elegant, bohemian vibe by adding splashes of color to the interior and exterior.
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.
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.
