$410K Home Featured on Season 3 of HGTV’s ‘Good Bones’ Seeks New Owner

A completed project by Karen Laine and Mina Starsiak Hawk—the stars of HGTV’s “Good Bones” who give old homes a new look in Indianapolis—just hit the market.

Laine and Starsiak Hawk are the co-founders of Two Chicks and a Hammer, their home renovation company based in downtown Indianapolis. This mother-daughter team renovated this particular property on Season 3, Episode 13, of “Good Bones.”


“It was in shambles,” Burns says of the home’s condition before Laine and Starsiak Hawk rescued it. “They did a down-to-the-studs renovation.”

In an unusual twist, Burns is also the seller. He bought the home for $292,566 in 2019—when it was fresh off the “Good Bones” makeover. Converting the attic to a living space was a project he undertook.

“Now it has more living square footage than when I bought it,” says Burns, who also repainted the interior.

Burns recently restored another home, an early 20th-century estate, which he plans to move into, so he’s ready to part with the “Good Bones” home.

From the large backyard hugging Fall Creek to the sweet front porch, the home is move-in ready. Highlights include new light fixtures, doors, and windows. There’s also a modern kitchen with an apron-front sink, marble island, and tiled accent wall.

The Near Northside neighborhood is a bit farther west than the trendy Kennedy King neighborhood—and “that quarter of a mile makes a huge difference in price,” says Burns. “A similar house over there would be $600,000.”

Burns’ home is a 10-minute drive to bars and restaurants along Massachusetts Avenue, as well as downtown’s Monument Circle.

“Anything close to downtown is in a really good area and in a hot real estate zone,” says Burns.

A new hospital being built down the street might also attract medical professionals, he says.

With the HGTV connection and the home’s sheer size, “this would be a fabulous Airbnb [offering],” says Burns. “You could probably sleep eight to 10 people in the home.”
