‘Good Bones’ Returns With More Dramatic Home Renos on HGTV
Crumbling roofs, bug-infested walls and rotted floors are no match for HGTV’s popular mother/daughter duo Mina Starsiak Hawk and Karen E Laine in the new season of HGTV’s Good Bones, premiering Tuesday, June 9.
In the series, cameras follow Mina, a real estate agent and soon-to-be mom of two, and Karen, a lawyer, as they buy the most dilapidated properties in their favorite Indianapolis neighborhoods, demo them down to the studs and completely transform them into gorgeous, functional family homes.
This season also spotlights very personal moments for both mother and daughter — Mina shares her emotional IVF journey that results in her second pregnancy while Karen announces she is retiring from the day-to-day operations of the family renovation business.
“It’s been a very busy year renovating homes, opening our new storefront, navigating Mom’s retirement and dealing with the roller coaster of trying to get pregnant, all while raising a toddler,” said Mina. “I’m excited to share every step with our fans.”
“I decided it was the right time to retire from our business, but I’ll still be renovating homes with Mina in the city we love,” said Karen. “The properties in this season are some of the best we’ve ever found.”
In the first episode, “Fountain Square Flashback,” Mina and Karen buy their most expensive house to date—a bungalow in the trendy Fountain Square neighborhood that needs serious updates.
To retain the home’s original charm yet stick to a strict budget and maximize the resale value, they must expertly fix the foundation issues, replace the plaster walls and restore the original hardwood floors.
