Recap | Dream Home on Channel 7 (27 May)

Dream Home on Channel 7 – Jacinta and Jordan’s measuring fail. Dream Home couple forced to change kitchen plans.

Tonight on Dream Home: Jacinta and Jordan’s kitchen measurements didn’t add up, while Lara and Peter’s living room footprint continued to shrink before their eyes.

Watsonia Renovation

Homeowners: Taeler and Elle

Renovators: Brad and Mel; Lara and Peter; Rhys and Liam

Renovation rookies Brad and Mel tackled the bathroom and main bedroom, deciding to change the bathroom layout and make the toilet a separate powder room. The new layout stole space from the unallocated study, sparking some concern among the other teams

As Brad and Mel excitedly continued with their build, they realised the stone behind their toilet was too long. They’d need to move the wall further back to accommodate it, leaving just 1500mm for the study.

With Elle’s brief for a “grand and showstopping kitchen” front of mind, Queensland brothers Rhys and Liam were busy installing a curved wall in the kitchen when Rhys, who had left his two-week-old son at home to compete, decided he needed to head home for a day, leaving Liam in charge.

Adding to their space woes, NSW couple Lara and Peter discovered that Rhys and Liam’s island bench was three metres long and one metre wide. To make room for the brothers’ massive bench, they had to concede two metres of their living room footprint.

Northcote Renovation

Homeowners: Brad and Mel

Renovators: Taeler and Elle; Hannah and Jonny; Jordan and Jacinta

With the re-stumping complete, Taeler and Elle and Hannah and Jonny returned to work on the site.

But with the extension put on hold during the re-stumping, Jordan and Jacinta – in charge of the kitchen and dining areas – had to use sticks in the dirt to draw out their plans. This move backfired when their installed kitchen cabinets didn’t match up. With no time to change the cabinets, Jacinta and Jordan had to adapt the rest of the kitchen to make them fit, killing Jacinta’s dream of having the island bench to be symmetrical to the window.

Allocated the main bathroom with a brief of “functionality for six people”, Taeler and Elle opted to create three areas – a double vanity in the centre, a toilet to the left, and a shower to the right.

The pair also included a secret door to the bathroom from 16-year-old Spencer’s bedroom, which Jacinta considered “a little weird.”

Tomorrow night on Dream Home: The countdown to the very first Dream Home room reveals is on, and the six teams are hard at work renovating Elle’s house in Watsonia, and Brad and Mel’s home in Northcote. And with only four days left until judging, the pressure is on.

Dream Home on Channel 7 and 7plus – Continues 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.
