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.
Mina and Karen are 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. However, its large size is intimidating, and it has rotten wood and antiquated windows.
Mina and Karen buy a tiny, Victorian-style fixer-upper home on the outskirts of the Indianapolis community of Fountain Square. It has a funky layout with nonfunctional spaces, forcing an addition to be built on the back that is still on budget.
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 ladies have disagreements on room placement and paint colors, they hope all the hard work in this decrepit home pays off with a buyer.
