This is where all the laughs are go­ing to come from – Sticks and Wom­bat would have to be one of the fun­ni­est cou­ples ever. The chem­istry that ex­ists be­tween two mates is vastly dif­fer­ent from the dy­namic of the dat­ing/mar­ried duo. The thresh­old for get­ting on each other’s nerves is a lot higher and the need for sen­si­tiv­ity goes out the win­dow. It re­ally makes for a more re­laxed at­mos­phere and a funny ex­pe­ri­ence for all of us who are watch­ing.

The love­able lar­rikins strug­gled with the brief for the first few weeks. The blurred lines be­tween Cal­i­for­nian bun­ga­low, Ed­war­dian and Vic­to­rian styles threw the gents a curve ball and it took them a few gos be­fore they started to hit the mark. Sticks loves his re­cy­cled tim­ber and Wom­bat is a fiend for sus­tain­able liv­ing (he ac­tu­ally lives ‘off the grid’ in a ship­ping con­tainer), but these at­tributes will be hard to in­ject into their house within such a spe­cific brief and that one-week time­frame. That said, Sticks’s car­pen­try skills and the boys’ at­ti­tude will win Aus­tralia over in a heart­beat (al­most as quickly as those ridicu­lously handsome and skilled broth­ers a few years back).
