Jodie & Soda's Rescue: House Rules Edition
Watch the whole journey here:
We’re making over 4 apartments that the Childhood Cancer Association use to house families who are dealing with a childhood cancer.
Jared and Jess, two contestants from House Rules will get together with so many generous Adelaide businesses to make this happen.
Just like the show, Jess & Jared have a set of House Rules they need to follow:
- Vibrant & Bright
- Family Friendly
- Kid resistant with a touch of fun
- Inclusive & stylish
- A retreat away from home
We put Childhood Cancer Association CEO, Cath O'Loughlin next to Jared & Jess from House Rules together, and the idea was born...
But first, we need some House Rules! Cath let us know what the families need to feel at home.
Just days out from starting work, we found out there was a problem...
But a few strings were pulled by Premier Steven Marshall and we were good to go!
Today's the day! Jodie & Soda's House Rules Rescue with Adelaide contestants Jared & Jess got underway at 8 this morning! Big thanks to all the tradies working hard over the next 48 hours to
Jodie's getting into the spirit! She's got a sledgehammer in hand and demolishing the shower cavity. And guess who she's imagining it is...?
Here's a quick time lapse of Carpet Court laying some flooring for one of the apartments the Childhood Cancer Association have for regional SA and NT families. And he's gotta be quick - there are another 3 still to go!
It all kicked off this morning, and hasn't stopped since! Here are the highlights so far. Have a good sleep tonight tradies, we'll see you bright and early tomorrow morning!
How much better do the apartments look after a roof restoration?!?! Luckily the rain held off so Roof Seal could do its thing!
The kitchens have had an amazing transformation - they were the first thing ripped out, and they'll go down to the wire tomorrow. Massive effort from International Kitchen Warehouse (with some tiling done by Jared & Jess from House Rules).
Our amazing crew are working through the night tonight, so we thought we'd give pass the time by going through this week's footy tips!
Dr Michael Rice has been involved in almost every Childhood Cancer case in Adelaide for the past 50 years and touched an incredible number of lives.
Here is the full 12-minute chat he had with Soda about his life's work with the Childhood Cancer Association.
Day 2 of Jodie & Soda's House Rules Rescue for the Childhood Cancer Association and Jared and Jess have put the call out for fellow contestants Leigh and Kristie (in Melbourne) to help out.
One call to Virgin Australia and they're on the next flight to Adelaide!
At high noon today, we reveal the Childhood Cancer Association apartments we've been renovating with Jared & Jess from House Rules. We spoke to Jess about how she's feeling as the deadline gets closer, and then Premier Steven Marshall announced a $5000 donation and a 5-year lease extension!
After a massive week, Jared & Jess from House Rules and Chris Hartley, President of the Childhood Cancer Association came in for a debrief. We shared a beautiful moment with someone at the opening ceremony, and Chris asked Jodie & Soda to be CCA Ambassadors.
