    Wow!!! I watched the "Fainting Wife" episode!! (Thanks [b]Ilikai!) Holy crap, it was wayyyy OTT, imo. She was acting as if she hit the bottle before the reveal. Honestly. Then the whole "holding the bible above her head" scene!!! I'm sorry..but it was really annoying to me.
    The yellow "bricks"... eh, they should have made it more realistic. The whole kitchen looked like a play... a high school drama prop wall.
    What the hell was wrong with the husband anyway?!?! Well over TEN YEARS the kitchen has been like that. Lazy s.o.b., no husband/wife of mine would have that loose of a leash. What did the husband mean when the host asked him, "What's the best thing you've done with the house?" and he says, "Got rid of my wife for 3 days". ?? I took it as a diss on the wife. One other thing I noticed...when they all first got there and went upstairs to where the hubby was..he looked like he was a "gamer"... looked like he was deep involved in a castle-type game. Bet that's why nothing gets done!

    I think I know why I like this show so much.. they're all fun!! Each of'm has a way with each other, where they play, mouth-off to each other and hijinx are always going on. It's a serious remodel job that they're doing, but they always seem to be in great spirits. Which, imo..makes it enjoyable to watch. This show is pretty much replacing my Trading Spaces and WYWO episodes because of the time constraints/$$ budget whoas and lack of time for the carpenter to do really good work. Also, the designers all think they're God/Godesses. This show (as far as I can tell) doesn't have any limits for cost, materials, etc..and the designers are more down-to-earth.

    Whatever site is trying to get rid of this show because they're calling it porn, or whatever.. I say GOOD LUCK!! This show is great, and it would take alot more than a random bra strap showing to have it yanked off the air.

    All things beautiful do not have to be full of color to be noticed; in
    life that which is unnoticed has the most power.

    well Noni sometimes gets over the top on her demands, but I love it when the designers figure out that they had too much planned and not enough time to do it.

    Nope I can't find much on him really, and as far as contacting him threw the TLC site, i'd do that but my computer HATES the TLC website. It causes some funky error ina .dll file and closes whenever I try and access it and I have no idea how to fix it. ,but I don't want you to think I'm like a stalker or anything, cuz I'm really not , I'm just a really big fan of his work, cuz you have to admit he does an awesome job at building shelves and that table he did with the car was WAY Awesome!!

    JLL, here's his bio from his short stint on "Changing Rooms":

    JAMES lunday always with a sense of humour, James Lunday provides carpentry expertise to assist Changing Rooms contestants and designers. After studying graphic design at the Sydney Institute of Technology for three years, James decided his creative skills would be best utilised on a practical level and began a four-year apprenticeship in carpentry and joinery, proudly following in his grandfather and great-grandfather's footsteps. Now 31, he has spent the past 10 years working as a qualified carpenter for his own business, Lunday Construction, doing everything from small renovations and repairs through to building a new house from the ground up. When he's not working, he likes to travel, surf or ride around on his 85 Softail Harley-Davidson.

    That's all the bios really say,I wonder why theres nothing else really on him.. like even some of the other ppl on the show have that they're single or whatever in their profile. It doesn't even say if he still lives in Aus or if he's living here. I finally got into the TLC in a fix message board, DO not EVER go there. If u thought I was obsessed... they are WORSE (or at least SOME of them). In fact so bad I got into it with a chick there because she's like scary obsessed. I guess at the moment James will remain a mystery. (who knows maybe he's purposely kept it this way!

    Did anyone see the European Classic house? Where the guy tried to repair holes in his drywall with epoxy? The wife hated the house, and was SO ungrateful. I couldn't believe it. She could have faked it. That was really poor manners.

    As I've said before, if you want the house to end up the way you want it, HIRE SOMEONE. If you ask a TV show to re-do your house, you get what you get.

    I saw it when it first showed and then the repeat this weekend with my wife. I thought the wife's reaction was funny and bitchy at the same time. I think what set her off was the fact the room was mostly yellow, which she hated and then her moms chandelier was up, that she had hidden in a closet cause she didn't like it. After that, she just started nitpicking the whole place. Granted she could have told the crew "thanks for your efforts" but also Fran the designer could have found out that she hates yellow before starting. The boyfriend/husband? didn't even know she hated yellow. I will admit that she does act a bit of a primmadonna and I didn't see any reason for her to think she was one.

    I assume that everything is 'donated' by the show. What she nitpicked (light fixture, wall color) can easily be fixed. What the crew usually does (major repairs and remodels) is worth consideration and politeness, even if they've painted the wall in pepto bismal pink.
    (BTW, on another well-known remodel show, there are no repairs, only damages and that show -and the designer- should be held liable for its damages. in my opinion.)

    Trading Spaces ... what started out as great as In A Fix (in my opinion!) and morphed into giving upper-middle class bored soccer moms a free room makeover instead of finding those that really needed the help and couldn't do it financially. ALSO, (rant mode is on, in case you couldn't tell) the things that Hildi, Kia and some of the others have done to homeowners are nothing short of vandalism. If you wouldn't have it in your own home, don't do it to someone else's.
