The Block 2016 Series Name Possibilities?

Yesterday was my first visit to The Block 2016. Trust me, this will be the greatest Block EVER. The building is absolutely massive. As for Heritage plans they will just restore the building and remain to the exact same colour. But there was 1 thing that was not made clear. The series name? In this post we will discuss possible theories for series names.

The Block Soap Factory

As you may know, when this building was built, its purpose was a soap and candle factory. It distributed iconic products like 'Solvol' and many other products.

The producers may choose to stick to its original 1920's purpose. This would be the most plausible name.

The Block Port Melbourne 

This time, The Block has ditched South Yarra and Prahran for there series. This was awaited by many as everyone was interested to see a building that had a different purpose renovated. Right now they are in Port Melbourne. These apartments will sell for a high price tag. The residential development happening around it will consist of 300 units. They all sold within 2 days for $330,00-$750,00. That could be what all the contestants were wanting to hear as it could mean there is lots of interest in Port Melbourne.

The Block Heritage Listed

Before the producers bought this building it was owned by property magnate, Harry Stamoulis. He bought the building of $25million. When he bought it, it wasn't Heritage. As it became Heritage, it soon began to lose its value and then was sold for $5mil to The Block producers. It still is heritage listed. This year the only thing that will be done to the building is restoration and repainting the building. It will be painted the same colour as before and I'm guessing that they will remove the timber that boards up the windows.


Which do you think it could be?

Highest Scoring Block Couples Of All Time!

Each week on The Block the teams fight it out to impress the judges, in hope of winning the weekly $10k prize to put towards their ever-decreasing budgets. But until now, we have had no idea who the highest scoring Block couple of all time is. Unsurprisingly, two teams from the current season made an appearance in the countdown as well as some from many seasons ago. Read on to see who took the top prize.

5- Caro and Kingi from The Blocktagon 2015 Caro and Kingi sure were the fan-favourites of The Blocktagon as they impressed the judges with Kingi's top-notch rendering skills which they featured throughout their Scandustrial (scandi industrial) South Yarra apartment. The Townsville-twosome came third at auction and walked away with a whopping $405k. Their apartment was purchased by a well-known QLD hospital charity and was part of a lotto giveaway. It was then sold again after that for $1.722mil.


4- Karlie and Will from The Block 2016
Karlie and Will came last in the very first cha…

Living and Dining Reveals!

Hey Blocksters, back by our follower's request is our weekly Room reveal review. I'll try my best not to be 'Negative Nellie', but there are no guarantees. This week was by far the most dramatic and emotionally straining so far for the contestants, with the second walk-off this season. Thankfully all 5 couples delivered finished Living and Dining rooms, including Hans and Courtney who had the largest space in Block history.  Let's have a look at the rooms delivered.

Kerrie and Spence
The obvious hero of the room is the stunning coffered ceiling. Not only is it very detailed, but it makes the room feel more mature and comfortable. This was mainly due to the amazing furniture choices and layout choices that they made. The combination of the leather and the soft grey fabric works well as well. The bookshelf against the entrance wall is also a success, styling book-shelves is by no means easy but Kerrie's styling is superb (#shelfie)! The emerald velvet dining chai…
