Ask any contractor, a great home has little to do with location, style, or even size. It’s all down to if it has Good Bones or not. Yes, when it comes to flipping houses, a solid foundation isn’t just important, it’s everything.
Karen E. Laine and her daughter Mina Starsiak Hawk are so good at flipping houses, it’s practically in their bones. They purchase dilapidated homes and spruce them up, modernize them, and fill them with tons of great art from local artists. Each episode follows the gals and their renovation team, as they make the most of houses built on great foundations, with not-so-great interiors.
Here’s everything you need to know to stream Good Bones.
