Week 1 – Guest bedroom and main bathroom
The first week on Australia’s renovation show got off to a frantic start with the contestants undertaking both a guest bedroom and a major bathroom.
First off was the reveal of the scope of the project – renovating heritage cottages that have been transplanted to the site, with a double story extension behind, and at the back of each block, a garage with a studio over it. So viewers are going to see a lot of CSR products throughout the full project.
This week, Bradford Insulation was prominent “behind the scenes” as the action took place. As the contestants busied themselves, there was Optimo underfloor insulation under the tiles, Bradford Gold Batts in the external walls, SoundScreen acoustic insulation in the internal walls, Anticon roofing blanket under the new metal roof on the cottages, and Enviroseal ProctorWrap being installed under the cladding to come soon from CSR Cemintel.
In the bathrooms and guest bedroom, Gyprock plasterboard was installed on walls and ceilings, particularly notable in the architectural raked ceiling with a skylight cutaway in the winning bathroom from Josh & Elyse.
