House Rules: The exteriors

Now all of the exterior areas on House Rules are done, we can see all the photos together. What did you think?

Here are they are…

Bronik & Corrine’s house

Ben and Danielle completed the front of Bronik and Corrine’s with a simple and sweet style.

It was pretty obvious Ryan and Marlee would be going home after the exteriors reveal of Bronik and Corrine’s backyard last night. I just wasn’t a fan. It was all kinds of wrong… See the photos below…

I loved what Corrine said “shall we talk about the elephant in he room?” Haha in reference to the graffiti. The artwork would have looked good in the right space, but not here in this yard. I would have spun the fire pit around so you could actually see it from the back doors instead of tucking it away. Anyone else concerned about the fire sitting on a timber deck? The bar was a funny addition too. The secret outdoor area was odd. Who would sit up there when there is a big deck off the back of the house? If my husband suddenly started to sit up there I’d be like “what are you doing??” I liked the main deck off the back of the house and the chairs and that’s about it. Sad to see Ryan and Marlee go though as they were good value!

Ryan & Marlee’s house

Steve and Tiana completed the front of Ryan and Marlee’s house. I agree with the judges that it wasn’t great with the odd path, but I did love that they fixed the verandah area and deck.

Let’s talk about the corn? Ok, let’s not. Ummmmmm…. not sure where that was going Tiana!



Bronik and Corrine completed a good backyard for Ryan and Marlee. Although, why does no one think of the rain?? Not one outdoor area has a proper cover? And I would be having heart attacks about accidentally leaving cushions outside to get wet and wrecked.

Ben and Danielle completed the backyard. I like the screens! Cool use of them in that spot.

Ben and Danielle’s house

Steve and Tiana got this front job. Much neater and better than what it was. Could have gone with a few more plants like the judges suggested.

Ryan and Marlee completed the back areas. There seemed to be a lot of them.

Now all of their own houses are completed inside and out. How lucky! How great has it been to see them all develop over time?

Can’t wait to see who wins… who will it be?

There’s a little rift happening now between Danielle and Corrine. I am a Danielle fan, so I am rooting for her. Love her lace addiction.
