RECAP | Pete & Courtney's front garden from heaven wins garden round two on HOUSE RULES
TONIGHT, ON HOUSE RULES
Pete & Courtney wowed with their take on a modern cottage garden in Tim & Mat’s front yard with LLB declaring it a “Melbourne front garden from heaven.” The married dance teachers won round two with a total judges and homeowners score of 35/40. Lisa & Andy’s sunken firepit failed to impress Tim & Mat earning 5/10, the lowest homeowner score this season, leaving Lisa in tears. The judges were more positive about Lisa & Andy’s zone scoring 22/30 and a pass for the 48-hour fix up room (the master bedroom) adding 3 points, but that couldn’t save team SA from last place. Tim & Mat’s total house value after the garden renovation is now $1,110,000, with an incredible $180,000 increase in value since they started House Rules.
SCOREBOARD (INCLUDING POINTS FROM 48-HOUR FIX UP ROOM)
PETE & COURTNEY (VIC) Front garden
(at Homebase) You created a structure, a magnet, a reason to be there. It was brilliant.
(at Homebase) That was a Melbourne front garden from heaven.
It’s an entirely different looking house.
(Tim) They have nailed the modern country garden.
(Mat) Overall, we both loved it.
SHAYN & CARLY (QLD) Dining and playzone
(Layout) The position of the layout is right with (the BBQ/bar) at the very end.
(Outdoor kitchen/bar) This is very luxey.
(Dining) modern with a hip Melbourne vibe but missing punches of colour.
(Tim) I think the space is really great, but I feel like things have been put in the wrong spot.
(Mat) The bar was the wow area and it got a bit lost out the back.
LISA & ANDY (SA) Outdoor lounge and sunken firepit
(Sunken firepit) hits the rule and works well to bring people together.
(outdoor lounge) This is extremely sophisticated.
(Sunken firepit) They here. There is no room for kids and the sharp edges are dangerous.
(Tim) The firepit lets the whole zone down.
(Mat) The sunken area was a miss for us.
LISA & ANDY 48HR FIX UP ROOM (MASTER BEDROOM)
OVERALL PASS + 3 points
Monday night on House Rules
