Tiny House, Huge Transformation

After purchasing a very small house near downtown Indianapolis for only $25,000, Mina Starsiak and Karen E. Laine have their work cut out for them as they continue their mission of renovating the city one house at a time. Built in 1880 and totaling only 512 square feet, the tiny house is sure to come with big problems. After the demo team tears it down to the studs, Mina and Karen get to work building it back up again, but bigger and better. Because the house is located in their own neighborhood of Fountain Square, the mother-daughter team wants to ensure it's a solid buy for its next owners, but they need to keep their renovation costs low enough to price the house to attract new buyers.
