Plot Synopsis

This one-hour reality series follows the mother-daughter duo Karen E Laine (formerly Jensen) and Mina Starsiak, owners of the Indianapolis-based company Two Chicks and a Hammer, as they revitalize their hometown by buying rundown homes and transforming them into urban remodels. With Mina's real estate know-how and Karen's legal background, these ladies get the property they want and enlist their family's help with demo and construction. Since founding their company in 2010, this duo has rehabbed approximately 20 homes. Now, in this series, each one-hour episode features Mina and Karen rehabbing a different home. On Monday, May 4, 2015 at 11pm ET/PT, HGTV premiered the pilot of this series with the title TWO CHICKS AND A HAMMER. Nearly 11 months later, the series officially debuted on Tuesday, March 22, 2016 at 11pm ET/PT on HGTV with a new name: GOOD BONES. Season 2 of GOOD BONES premiered on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT on HGTV. New this season, Karen and Mina will take on bigger risks and even tougher renovations - from repairing haphazard foundations to reconstructing homes from the ground up. Each episode will feature the pair as they overcome numerous construction nightmares, including reconfiguring outdated home layouts to suit modern families and adding major amenities such as new kitchens, large master suites and new outdoor areas perfect for entertaining. In the season opener, "Decaying Duplex Gets A Transformation," Mina and Karen snag a four-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex for only $4,000. But with one of the worst foundations they've ever seen combined with unsafe floor joists on the second floor, Mina expects to spend upwards of $200,000 on the renovation. When Tad demos the chimney and puts a hole in the roof, the women grow more concerned about their budget. They hope that their attention to detail in the beautifully finished single-family home will pay off.
On Tuesday, August 29, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, HGTV premiered the Season 2 finale of GOOD BONES. In the season ender, "Historical Hot Mess," Mina and Karen splurge on a corner lot home in the historical neighborhood of Fletcher Place. While struggling to work within the guidelines of the Historical Preservation Commission, Mina and Karen face more problems than they could have ever anticipated. If they can persevere, the girls think they can make up for the costs by the time the house goes on the market -- will they have gone too far over budget to make it all worth it?
