House Rules: The Rundown Queenslander

How great was it watching the House Rules gang transform the run down Queenslander? For me it was right up my alley as I am a huge fan of the weatherboard house with the deck and floorboards!

Each couple ended up with about 3 zones. Last night we saw Cassie and Matt go home as the judges eliminated them – they scored 16/20 for their combined kitchen, bedroom and front yard.

Here are all the photos…

I wasn’t a huge fan of their work this week. The kitchen got a little overwhelming but their front yard was great.


Ben and Danielle scored 20/20. I love these 2. Danielle is the queen of lace and never ever wears anything without a touch of lace. Cracks me up. Danielle’s style is getting better over the weeks.

The guest bedroom was perfect (minus the wallpaper!). I loved the outdoor area. It was my style for sure. I have saved that BBQ area for future reference here at home! 😉


Bronik and Corrine also scored 20/20. I might be missing something here, but I just can’t get in to their style. I didn’t like the couch and strange wallpaper wall? Did you?

The outdoor shower was a winner though. That was a good idea and sat perfectly in the corner.


Steve and Tiana scored 18/20 with their master bedroom, verandah, laundry and backyard play area.

They did a pretty good job I thought. Although the home is to be a holiday house, I still think they should have put a built in wardrobe in the master?? There was plenty of space for it.


Ryan and Marley scored 17/20 with the dining room, carport, front entrance and deck. These 2 are such a good team. They never seem to be exhausted! Their paving was a great asset to the house.

The entrance wasn’t fab and they could have done so much more with the space. I guess all that paving took up a lot of their time. I’d also be painting those yellow doors!

What did you think of the house? Did you enter the draw to win? I have entered too many times hahaha!

    Love it! The outside is beautiful! The interior had a few things I’d change if I was living there permanently but ok for a holiday stay 😉

  • Angela Mula

    I wish they would share the exterior house colour!

  • Anita Lane

    You’re spot on with all your comments. The kitchen needed overhead cupboards to keep the dust off of the cricket u when it’s a holiday home brief. I’m not liking the new found sneakiness of Ryan and Marley. Picking up where Brian left off.

  • WAM Home Decor

    Absolutely love the colours, very relaxing and perfect for a holiday home. So good, they included lots of space for lazing about. Loads of cushions on sofas and seating to make the place extra comfy. Great job, wish we could stay there!

  • Rachel Staff

    Do you know what the exterior house colour is yet?

  • Lucy

    Any news on that exterior paint colour? Would be much appreciated!

      Sorry – wouldn’t have a clue.
