Although they missed out on a win to Dani and Dan who used their coveted '1 Point' trophy to secure first place, Mike and Andrew are unconcerned.
"We are stoked," Andrew admits. "The judges said we had the best room of the week. You can't ask much more than that — other than $5000, which would have been nice."
Despite losing out on the cash, the boys say the judges' praise for their beautifully executed children'’s room was enough to keep them happy.
"We were a bit nervous about going for a kid's room," Andrew adds. "We thought as the plan said 'Guest Bedroom' we might put ourselves at risk by going with something bolder. And given we're not interior designers; we were worried we'd not get it right. But they seemed to like it, so that's good."
They did indeed, with both Neil Whitaker and guest judge Lisa Green, Editor-in-Chief of House and Garden magazine, particularly taken with the room.
"I think it has great energy," Neil says, upon entering the brightly coloured room.
"It's a clever use of space. There are nice high ceilings, so they have plenty of room," Lisa adds.
Everyone was unanimous in their love of the Mike and Andrew's custom-made bunk bed — the largest statement in the room.
"Kids love bunk beds — we shared them when we were kids," Andrew explains. "I had top bunk for a while and then Mike got it. Actually, we had to take him to hospital once when he fell out!"
The other big talking point was that massive television. Not all the judges were convinced it was such a good idea. The brothers, too, are a little uncertain.
"I think some parents wouldn’t be too keen on the idea of a TV [in the bedroom] — but six screws and it's taken out,” Andrew explains.
Their favourite thing: Their bunks and the cute tree artwork on the wall. "The handprints are Milan's — she our builder Justin's daughter. She's four years old and cute as a button!" Mike says.
Making it age appropriate: "A children's room is something you grow with, so we wanted to have this room be used for a young child, probably aged five to ten. But a teenager could easily come in here and change things," Mike says.
Their quirkiest feature: The giant ruler measuring chart! "We made it! We paid $1.50 for the ruler, I got my camera, took a photo and we took it to Signarama and got our blind people to put it in for us," says Andrew.
