Room for kids in duo s future

Maddi Carter burst into tears when she first walked into the main living area of her newly renovated home but it was not because she was upset.

The Townsville beauty, who with fiance Lloyd Wright is representing Queensland on Seven reality makeover series House Rules, was just overwhelmed by a vision of her future family spending time in the space, which was unveiled during last night's episode.

"I think with us being such a young couple and it being our very first house, as soon as I saw that kitchen it really hit home that this would be the place where I make my kids' lunches," Carter explained to AAA.

"It is the heart of our home."

Even better was the fact that the kitchen was completed by their good friends, Melbourne couple Adam Dovile and Lisa Lamond, who had previously struggled for weeks on end with low scores from both the judges and home owners.

Wright said he was "stoked" for the Victorian pair to receive three perfect 10s for their zone - the highest score ever seen on the show.

"They have had a lot of tough times but they still battled through, so to see them dig themselves out and get such a great score, we couldn't be happier for them," the aviation firefighter said.

Less impressive was the main suite created by Tasmanian parents Brooke Strong and Grant Lovekin, which featured a bizarre hessian ceiling, and the paintwork throughout team SA's zone by Michael "Bomber" Bamford, who is a professional painter.

As the show heads into the final week of interior makeovers, Carter and Wright, both 27, will be back in renovation mode when the teams travel to Adelaide to start work on Bamford and partner Melanie Chatfield's home.

While the pressure is high for all the teams to deliver, Wright said not to expect any bust-ups between him and his lady love.

"On the second day of week one we saw just about every other couple arguing with each other and we just thought 'Let's not do that'," he admitted.

"We are a team and (your partner is) the only other person you've got to work with. There's no point fighting with your ally."

Carter laughed she was more keen than ever to marry Wright after their experience on the show.

"He has put a lovely rock on my finger and given me a nice home so I can't complain," the former swimsuit model said.
