Next Episode of Good Bones is
Mother and daughter duo Karen Jensen and Mina Starsiak are setting out to revitalize their hometown of Indianapolis one property at a time. They're buying up run down homes and transforming them into stunning urban remodels. With Mina's real estate know-how and Karen's no-nonsense legal background, these ladies are unstoppable in getting a property they want and enlisting their family's help with demo and construction. When it comes to exciting new homes in the city of Indianapolis, it all comes down to the ladies of Good Bones.
Mina and Karen take on a 2,800-square-foot home with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a bonus space; it needs a lot of work, and 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.
After going underwater on previous East Street investments, Mina and Karen return to the area and hope their third flip is a charm. They plan to give a home more bathrooms and an open floor plan, but when Cory discovers a budget-busting water line issue, the ladies must get creative with their renovation.
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.
Mina and Karen are fixing up a condo building and Mina wants to remodel one of the units for her sister and her two girls, who want to be closer to downtown. They work to transform the total gut job into a dream home filled with personalized touches, including a special mural made by Mina, Karen and the kids.
