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.

(Layout) The position of the layout is right with (the BBQ/bar) at the very end.

LLB                     8

(Outdoor kitchen/bar) This is very luxey.

Wendy              8

(Dining) modern with a hip Melbourne vibe but missing punches of colour.

Homeowners   8

(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

 Jamie              8

(Sunken firepit) hits the rule and works well to bring people together.

LLB                   8

(outdoor lounge) This is extremely sophisticated.

Wendy             6

(Sunken firepit) They here. There is no room for kids and the sharp edges are dangerous.

Homeowners  5

(Tim) The firepit lets the whole zone down.

(Mat) The sunken area was a miss for us.
