Dream Home on Channel 7 – Dreams turn to chaos. Dream Home teams stumped by site shutdown

Tonight on Dream Home: A site shutdown threw teams into chaos; Queensland tradie brothers, Rhys and Liam, pulled off a cunning negotiation, while Victorian sisters, Taeler and Ellie, showed their hand as fierce competitors.

Taeler and Ellie’s House (Watsonia):

The teams listened intently to Taelar and Ellie’s detailed design brief: natural materials, textures and tones to create a modern 70s aesthetic with bold gestures. With the budget divided evenly between them, the teams then decided who would take on which rooms in Ellie’s 1960s merchant builder home.

Brothers Rhys and Liam were allocated the kitchen, dining, pantry and laundry areas, while NSW husband and wife team, Lara and Peter, took bedroom two and the living area. The married couple haphazardly conceded two metres for Rhys and Liam’s dining area, a decision they immediately regretted.

Rookie renovators and parents of four teenagers, Brad and Mel from Victoria, chose the bathroom and main bedroom, but struggled to measure up both areas.

Brad and Mel’s house (Northcote):

With four teenage children, Brad and Mel’s design brief centred on functionality for a family of six. The couple currently slept in a room off the dining room with no wall in between, and the family shared one bathroom.

Queensland’s Hannah and Jonny, new parents of twins, chose to renovate the living area and bedroom two. Sisters Taeler and Ellie chose bedroom four and the bathroom, while married NSW couple Jacinta and Jordan, took on the dining and kitchen areas.

With Brad and Mel’s sons’ bedrooms at the front of the house, Hannah and Taeler agreed to matching block-out blinds to keep the appearance consistent. But Taeler wasn’t happy with Hannah’s blind choice and opted to make a completely different selection.

She said it was fine to be different because the backing of both curtains would be white. But when Taeler returned to the house, Hannah asked her which option she’d selected, and Taeler opted to play vague. She said she couldn’t remember which blind she chose, leaving Hannah annoyed at her evasiveness.

As renovations progressed, it was discovered that the back half of Brad and Mel’s 73-year-old property was lower than the front. The house needed to be re-stumped, and the site was shut down to accommodate the work. But with only 10 days to deliver their rooms, the teams started to panic.

Tomorrow night on Dream Home: With one week to go before the epic reveals of two Victorian Dream Home renovations, the pressure of creating someone else’s forever home proves too much for some teams.

Dream Home on Channel 7 and 7plus – Continues Monday and Tuesday at 7.30pm

About the Show

No dream is too big. Life-changing renovation series Dream Home premieres Sunday, 26 May.

Seven’s brand-new competition renovation series Dream Home is set to take the renovation genre to new heights as six pairs of everyday Aussies battle it out room by room, transforming tired suburban family homes into astonishing new dream homes.

Premiering 7.00pm Sunday, 26 May on Channel 7 and 7plus, Dream Home is hosted by Dr Chris Brown and will feature some of the biggest and best life-changing renovations Australia has ever seen.

“In real estate terms, my own skills are a renovator’s delight, in need of a serious makeover,”

– confesses Dr Chris.

“I’ve somehow lived through two renovations and seen both of them blow out on time and budget; mostly because of my questionable decisions.

“I genuinely feel like I can relate to what our couples are experiencing – possibly more than they’ll ever know.”

With grit and determination at the forefront, the teams will design and rebuild each other’s outdated and dilapidated homes.

Following renovations in each state, the top three placing couples will have their backyards completely made over with stunning gardens and outdoor living spaces.

All couples will receive the gift of a lifetime with their newly renovated homes. The winning couple will also receive a cash prize of $100,000 to help with their mortgage.

A trio of expert judges – Lana Taylor of Three Birds Renovations, top buyer’s agent Simon Cohen and award-winning interior designer Rosie Morley – will provide invaluable insight during the renovations before critiquing and scoring each new space in the stunning homes.

Produced by Endemol Shine Australia (A Banijay company), Dream Home will inspire and ignite Australia’s love of home renovation.
