“We don’t start anything with the intention of losing!” Mat, 27, says of himself and brother Tim, 32, both carpenters.
Tim shares Mat’s confidence: “There’s no doubt we are a winning combination.
We’ve renovated before; we’ve done it together to a high standard and are confident in what we do.”
The brothers, who share a mother but have different fathers, have always been close, and have entered the show as a way of helping out Tim’s young family, wife Kate and 1-year-old daughter Isabella, who last year moved into a 1950s weatherboard cottage that’s never been renovated.
Mat says, “It’s a dump.”
