The House Rules show on Channel 7 will be the longest period of time Australian Navy logistics officer Rob and his wife Rose have spent together in the last five years.

They have been married for eight years and the opportunity to renovate six houses across the country is like a second honeymoon.

Rob was away at sea when Rose found the perfect house in Western Australia after a three-week search, which has a $329,000 mortgage.

Mum of three Rose said it was the backyard that she loved which made her buy the home.

“I think seeing the kids running around the backyard is what decided it for me.

"It had big springy buffalo turf on it and a fair amount of dandelions as well,” says Rose.

Rob doesn't want their renovation to effect the precious backyard either

“If they built a 10-foot decking in the backyard I would be mortified.

"The backyard is a really good size but to do that would just shrink it.”

Their renovating experience is a bathroom design in a former two-bedroom apartment they owned in Sydney. 

“I think we worked really well and we agreed on a lot more things than we thought we would which was nice,” says Rose.

The couple were the first couple to be eliminated on this years show.

Despite being upset, Rose said that they still feel like winners having their own home renovated.

"This is the only competition you enter where even the loser wins."

The first couple on 2016's House Rules were Fil and Joe, who have a 1950's weatherboard house in Melbourne.

The second house transformed on air on this seasons House Rules was South Australian parents Michelle and Brooke.

The third house renovated on this year's House Rules series was Team NSW Nancy and Daniel, who's rundown 60's house lies halfway between their parent's homes.

The fourth house reveal on this year's Channel 7 House Rules series was Luke and brother Cody, the former owning a country cottage in Queensland.
