BREAK­ING their own rules was the key to suc­cess for Steve and Tiana Fal­zon on House Rules last week.

The fa­ther-and-daugh­ter duo came equal third af­ter ren­o­vat­ing Matt and Cassie’s Tas­ma­nia home and Ms Fal­zon said their im­proved score was a re­sult of try­ing new things.

“I made Dad take a lot of the reins when it came to shop­ping,” she said. “I sorted out a lot of tradies this week which might have worked in our favour be­cause I am very good at telling tradies what to do.”

Ms Fal­zon said de­spite spend­ing the wet and windy week in a tent for fin­ish­ing last the week be­fore, ev­ery­thing came to­gether.

“We both found a bit of a dif­fer­ent place and that paid off for us.”


They re­vamped the en­suite and living room, and met the house rules of cre­at­ing a mod­ern take on a ’60s vibe and keep­ing it so­phis­ti­cated, end­ing up with a com­bined score of 21 out of 30.

“I loved the en­suite we pro­duced,” Ms Fal­zon said, adding that it was their favourite trans­for­ma­tion so far.

The home­own­ers were also im­pressed and judge Wendy Moore said she loved the old-style cabi­net they con­verted in to a van­ity.

This week, the teams are ren­o­vat­ing Ka­rina and Brian’s house in WA.
