Andrew's House Rules

Andrew Dimmer-Stewart was like any other bubbly ten year old, before he was given the devastating diagnosis of leukaemia. It was made even harder for his family because Andrew's step dad was made redundant, and the bank is threatening to take their home. But the Ellenbrook community has rallied around the family, and when House Rules' Carole and Russell heard about the situation, they got the ball rolling on a spectacular backyard makeover.

The amazing transformation was completed in less than a week.

The list of helpers and donations is incredible. Here are the people who got together to create the family's dream backyard.
