Good Bones Full Episode Guide

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Mina and Karen work on a duplex unit that's riddled with trash and interesting surprises, including a wall made entirely out of old doors. However, further problems arise when Cory discovers a foundation issue no one saw coming.

  • 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 the North side townhome. The interior is in rough shape.

  • Mina and Karen take on a massive, partially-constructed house that was abandoned by investors. Since it represents a big investment, tensions rise when it comes to figuring out the kitchen cabinets' design.

  • 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 renovate the first of many houses they purchased on Talbott Street in Indianapolis. The three-bedroom, one-bath home has a few architectural challenges starting with the bathroom's placement far from the bedrooms.

  • Mina and Karen take on a massive duplex that was abandoned mid-construction and Mina decides to make it a competition. She renovates one side with a playful "Rose and Cotton Candy" theme while Karen opts for a French country look, and three real estate agents pick the winner.

  • 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.

  • 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 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 her husband are ready to start a family and build their forever home. However, just as the ball gets rolling, Mina finds out she's pregnant, putting a rush on finishing her dream home before the baby is born.

  • 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 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 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 purchase a home near the Northside neighborhood that's full of historical features; they do their best to design an open floor plan while preserving as many elements as possible.

  • Mina and Karen take on a massive house in the Old Southside neighborhood that has undergone some unsuccessful renovations throughout the years. They are determined to rework the entire floor plan, but their renovations are halted when they hear inexplicable noises in the attic, discover a collapsing floor, and uncover live termites.

  • 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.

  • Despite its odd layout and decrepit state, Mina and Karen are taking on an old house with a ton of historic charm in the Old Southside neighborhood. As framing starts, the crew uncovers a major structural problem that hits the budget hard, and later, Mina gets some bad news that could threaten a huge selling point of the house. But when the renovation is complete, this charmer offers all the comforts of modern living blended with antique pieces like vintage front doors and a restored curved staircase.

  • Karen and Mina are tackling a special project, Karen's new barn-shaped guesthouse, which will have a large garage on the first floor and guest space on the second floor. But before construction begins, Mina and Karen get some devastating permit news from the city, forcing them to rethink the size of the structure. On the inside, the women cover the ceiling with reclaimed barnwood and have some custom barn doors made, and Karen and her husband take on a DIY flooring project. Karen hopes that size restrictions and construction costs don't get in the way of making this the farmhouse-inspired guesthouse of her dreams.

  • 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 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.

  • 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 are the new owners of a very outdated and bland townhouse in the heart of the Bates-Hendricks neighborhood. Despite the maroon carpeting, peach wallpaper and active bird's nests, the home has a lot of potential. The women get started designing a new layout after demolition but all work comes to a halt after they find a surprise in the attic and have to call the police. Once they are back on track, Karen and Mina pour their hearts and souls into finishing the home for friends of the family.

  • 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 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.
