  1. House 1
    The study with its vista of the oak tree and the northern light streaming through the window is really taking advantage of its surroundings. The judges refer to the post Covid world where a study is a necessity but admit this one is beautiful and you would not get much work done.

    For Darren it is a masterful stroke to have an oak floor, with an oak table top looking out to the oak.

    On the downside, the painting is terrible.

    We move to the bedroom where Shaynna exclaims, Oh my goodness. It is stunning. The judges are intrigued by the angles. The joinery is declared to be very impressive, the colour pallette autumnal and it is a pivate useful adult space.

    Again, the painting is condemned as terrible.

  2. House 2

    Like House 1, we start with the study and immediately, Shaynna observes that this one is really spacious (compared to the one downstairs). Again, there is the obligatory comments that Work from Home is so on trend at the moment. We learn that two chairs side by side shows great business acumen to run a small business.

    On to the WC…Neale love the black sink. Hate the lack of contrast.

    Then finally the children’s bedroom…the judges sound surprise that a couple sans children can create a space for future taxpayers. The space has a sense of whimsy, emotion and romance replete with cossseted tea pot. The grafico have a wonderful timeless quality to it. The judges appreciate that the ‘children’ element is not a fixed feature and the space can easily transform into a space for an older child or adult.

  4. House 3
    The judges pretend to admire the view of the other houses and then
    rhapsodize about the study cum rumpus room. Shaynna cuts straight to the chase and states the styling is unsophisticated,

    The additional bedroom is real estate gold but it is nothing to get excited about.

    Then onto the ‘secret’ storage space. Meh. The judges go through the motions.

  5. House 4

    Paintwork bad.

    Kingsman good (despite desk drawer dragging on the carpet).

    Thinks that just about sums up House 4.

  6. House 5

    The judges think the lack of office is a mistake on par with the lack of dining table last week. Shaynna makes it clear that they know House 5 is flushed with cash but their spending is quite stingy. They absolutely need to put an office in the studio.

    The TV is positioned too high in the media space.

    On to the bedroom. Neale hates it. The dried flowers are horrendously funereal in their ugliness. Shaynna laughs and no amount of editing can hide the fact the judges are over it.

    • Show’s you how quickly things changed: from a nice to have study desk to must have work space.
      I thought the house five bedroom overwhelming. And I think they are saving their pennies to do the gardens – that is really costly.
      And there is a further space to be renovated? How big is this place?

      • This week is Hell Week (hallways, laundry, entrance and redo room). We understand that this will finish the main house.

        Then the following weeks will need to be padded out with
        Exterior
        Front Garden
        Back Garden
        Studio/Garage
        Bitching about auction order…

  7. Wow according to Jasmine a woman objecting to her stuff Being stolen is being feisty – way to support women in the workplace. No opinions about your tradesman being an aggressive arse? how disappointing, I thought we had gotten rid of those throwback women who blamed women for a man’s behaviour.

    • Haven’t liked Jasmine from the start. Or Luke. They’re both crass whingers. And she’s a school teacher!
      She never stopped whingeing about the heritage requirements, as if noone else had the same rules.
      He’s always takes shortcuts – bathroom not plumbed, squeaky floors he tried not to fix.
      Luke’s team stole from Sarah and abused her, and he came out all beady eyes, shoulders hunched up telling Sarah “don’t cry, please don’t, it’s fine” It obviously was not fine. Dickhead.
