Jason and Sarah: Third Place
It was a slow, but successful, week for Jason and Sarah who were more focused on making sure Ronnie paid for every second he used their yard as an access way than they were on completing their own space. In the end, they got the money from Ronnie and Georgia, and a better score than them!
Jason and Sarah wanted to provide a family backyard that could be used year-round. The judges were wowed by how big it was with Shaynna loving the outdoor kitchen and how it felt like an extension of the house. Neale said it was "luxury", and Darren loved the outdoor heater, adding that it was the best he'd ever seen. Letting the couple down was the yellow in their wall panels as Shaynna suggested it should be lighter or darker. All three judges thought the fireplace was magic and decided that once the trees grow tall around it, the area will feel very private. The space looked stylish and was functional, but Jason and Sarah had ditched their cubbyhouse, even though it was mandatory that it be included. As a result, the couple lost a point for breaking the rules.
