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?

Guide To Visiting the Oslo!

The Block 2019 is well underway at the Oslo Hotel is by far the largest project ever attempted by The Block, as a result, more facilities than ever have been needed to ensure construction can run as required. There’s a lot to see when you visit, so we’ve compiled a list of must-visit places to go when you visit The Block 2019!
Oslo Front Facade

The main facade of the Oslo is in the process of being fully transformed, covered in scaffolding and Block logos. Located on Grey Street, the majority of the construction action is all up the front. If you're after a coffee fix, McCafe even have a little coffee van parked out the front. Soon, the scaffolding that covers the front facade will be gone and it'll be the perfect spot to admire 5 stunning FINISHED terrace homes!
Oslo Garage Facade

Located only 100m from Grey Street, Dalgety Lane is the entrance to the Block studio garages. Not only can you follow the progress of the studio’s, you get an amazing view of the entire new of the exten…

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…
