Recap | Dream Home on Channel 7 – Queensland’s Rhys and Liam crowned champions

Dream Home on Channel 7 – Queensland’s Rhys and Liam crowned champions – Tradie brothers take the win.

Queensland tradie brothers Rhys and Liam Almond delivered a knockout tropical backyard renovation, scoring 37.5 out of 40 to claim the title of 2024 Dream Home champions and $100,000 in prize money.

As one of six teams in the Dream Home competition, Liam’s dilapidated Deception Bay Queenslander received a stunning renovation, with the property now valued at $1.6 million.

Reflecting on their win and his new dream home, Liam described the competition as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for his family that also helped him reconnect with his brother.

“Rhys and I are mates, but we got to be brothers again, living under the one roof. Doing this with Rhys was one of the most meaningful and exciting things about the competition.

 “We’re coming away from this very proud of every moment, and we’re both walking away as winners,”

– said Liam

The cash prize was the icing on the cake for the brothers as Rhys sacrificed time with his young family to help Liam after rising interest rates put Liam’s renovation plans on hold.  

“Taking $100,000 off my mortgage is going to be life-changing for myself and my family, and that means the world to me,”

– said Rhys, who is now in a better position to finish off his renos.

Dream Home judges Lana Taylor, Simon Cohen, and Rosie Morley unanimously praised the pair’s backyard design and layout.

“Boys, I felt like I’d stepped into a complete oasis. You absolutely created a tropical dream out there, perfect for a Queensland setting,”

– said Lana.
Simon added,

“You created a whole separate living area, which is just a massive tick for any family home.” 

Rosie loved the pavilion’s scale in relation to the home, saying it all “worked in harmony.”

Only half a point separated Rhys and Liam from the runners-up, Lara and Peter Bird, who scored 37 out of 40 for their Belrose backyard.

Dream Home is produced by Endemol Shine (A Banijay Company) for Network Seven.

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.
