                          Episode highlights

                          “We’re easy to work with and transparent, and we treat everyone that works for us the way we like to be treated” – 9:00 – Damien Wynne

                          “We’re doing these houses as if we’re moving in there, we’re making it the best we possibly can. The passion that drives us is the change that we’re trying to make – everything we’re doing, we want it to be the best.” – 21:05 – Michael Wynne

                          “One of my main roles is reigning Damien in. At the end of the day, we all know that if you’ve got an endless pot of money you can build whatever you want, and Damien will come up with some absolutely amazing ideas, but they’re just not always practical.” – 34:25 – Michael Wynne

                          “I’ve had lots of health issues with my children, but Damien has never once questioned whether I can come in.” – 46:35 – Michael Wynne

                          “We’ve had multiple moments, scary moments where you get something come up and you’re frightened. So I’ll call Mike and tell him – I wouldn’t call anyone else.” – 50:20 – Michael Wynne
