CARLY & LEIGHTON, SOUTH AUS­TRALIA

This cou­ple’s 1957-built house has never been ren­o­vated and is still pretty much ex­actly as it was when

it was first put to­gether. Carly is a flight at­ten­dant and has no ren­o­vat­ing

ex­pe­ri­ence but Leighton is a car­pen­ter

with his fam­ily’s build­ing com­pany so he knows his way around

a ham­mer and nail.

MICHELLE & STEVE, NEW SOUTH WALES This cou­ple from Syd­ney’s North­ern Beaches have been to­gether for nearly

30 years and have ren­o­vated five properties. They lost their last house due to a bad in­vest­ment and have been sav­ing to buy the house they live in. They picked it up in May 2012 and they have done some work on it al­ready. Now they hand over the keys to the other cou­ples

to fin­ish the job.

NICK & CHRIS,

VIC­TO­RIA Th­ese broth­ers have just moved out of home to­gether but only 15 min­utes away from mum. They hope the House Rules teams will

turn their three­bed­room home into a mod­ern bach­e­lor’s pad

with a fo­cus on en­ter­tain­ing with all the mod cons. Nick is a

car­pen­ter so his trades­man skills will

come in handy.

JANE & PLINIO,

TAS­MA­NIA AF­TER trekking around Aus­tralia twice this cou­ple set­tled down in their

three-bed­room weath­er­board house in New Town, Tas­ma­nia, in 2010. They ad­mit their home is in need of some ren­o­va­tion. Jane is a high school teacher and hasn’t

got a great deal of ren­o­vat­ing ex­pe­ri­ence but Plinio isn’t afraid to take to things with a

sledge­ham­mer.

JEMMA & BEN WESTERN AUS­TRALIA Th­ese new­ly­weds post­poned their hon­ey­moon to take part in The cou­ple picked up

their 1950s three­bed­room home in 2011 and the Ital­ian-in­spired de­sign comes com­plete with two con­crete lions. Not ex­actly to their taste so they are look­ing for some­thing a lit­tle more mod­ern to

start their life in.

HOLD­ING THE FORT: Joh Griggs and the con­tes­tants.
