Melbourne chippies Tim and Mat have fast become the larrikins of this year's House Rules. But a few years ago, the brothers were devastated when their grandfather and "hero", Lachie, died after a long battle with dementia.

"We were all very close to him," Mat, 27, tells TV WEEK. "We idolised him. And then he passed suddenly. It's probably the worst thing our family has had to go through."

The siblings think their grandfather would find their TV career hilarious.

"He'd just call us whackers!" Tim, 32, says with a laugh.

Despite how tough it is for Tim to be away from his wife and daughter, the result will be a beautifully renovated home for his family. But getting it right is important – when the other teams were renovating his 1950's weatherboard cottage, they were forced to reconsider their design choices after laying dark flooring through the house.

"I'm not the biggest fan of dark floors," Tim admitted during the walk-through with host Johanna Griggs. But the Atari gaming console installed by Lisa and Andy was a winner for the brothers.

As for Mat, it's not quite time for marriage or children. He's been in a relationship with his partner for five years, but they'd rather travel and buy their own home before having children.

Tim says he owes Mat "big time" for agreeing to join him on the show.

"I'm sure if Mat buys his own house, I'll be there every weekend renovating!"

House Rules airs Monday to Wednesday, 7.30pm and Sunday, 7pm on Channel Seven.

Did The Block leave House Rules' Tim broke?.
It appears much-loved House Rules contestant Tim, 32, was caught in the middle of Blockheads Chris and Jenna Susetio's controversial unpaid tradie scandal, after it was revealed the chippie had worked for the couple. In 2014, The Block: Glasshouse saw two couples – Darren and Deanne Jolly and Michael and Carlene Duffy – walk away with a measly $10,000 payout after a lack of buyer interest. But it appears they weren't the only ones burned by the show's "depressing" season.
