Home renovation series ‘Good Bones’ launches in KSA

House Renovation

Mother and daughter team, Karen E Laine and Mina Starsiak, star in a new home renovation and flipping series “Good Bones,” which premiered in the Kingdom on Monday on HGTV, channel 357.
Discovered by casting agents through their Facebook page, daughter Mina, a real estate agent, and mom Karen, a former attorney, left their full-time jobs to focus on revitalizing their hometown of Indianapolis one property at a time.
Karen brings the experience and legal expertise, while Mina brings the real estate know-how as they snatch up neglected and often overlooked homes, transforming them into stunning renovations.
“With every house we renovate, we’re raising property values ​​and bringing new homeowners to the neighborhood,” said Mina. Karen added: “For me, it’s all about having an impact in our hometown and making it a better place.”
The show’s construction team, which includes their extended family members, also adds to the mother-daughter dynamic.
“’Good Bones’ is a show built around families transforming rundown homes into something special,” said Phillip Luff, managing director, UK & EMEA, Scripps Networks Interactive.
“It doesn’t gloss over the renovation process, which at times can bring out family tension and unexpected set-backs, but it does show you how you can overcome some of these challenges when renovating your own place with a good attitude and a sense of humour.”
