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 venture just east of downtown Indy 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 ladies 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.
Mina and Karen buy a tiny duplex in a neighborhood south of downtown that has potential to be a big risk. The area is still in transition and there are already tenants on one side leaving the ladies only a small space to work with. Mina's sister-in-law is the intended resident so they use her as inspiration while transforming it into a cute pink cottage with a few special touches. The big reveal is an emotional moment where the flowing tears confirm the house is, indeed, perfect.
Mina and Karen revamp a tiny but pricey two-bedroom home on a tight budget. They build additional bedrooms and reconfigure the floor plan to increase functionality. When their contractor mistakenly covers every wall in shiplap the team comes up with some innovative design solutions to create a unique industrial farmhouse style.
Mina and Karen are back in the Bates-Hendricks neighborhood and hoping to turn a profit this time around. Since the home is one of the smallest on the street, the ladies plan to chop off a poorly designed addition and pop up a new story addition, adding valuable square footage and opening up the living room and kitchen. Spending a little more money on landscaping and curb appeal rounds out Mina and Karen’s renovation plans but a whopper of a surprise sends the crew into a panic, maybe sending Karen home with a new pet.
