    Shannon Vos (an old block contestant) reviewed all the kitchens and said the judges were too harsh on Kim and Chris and I agree.

    I really want to see new judges next year and have a real estate agent on the panel too. There's a show on Foxtel called I own Australia's best home and the judges on that always have vetting opinions on each house, as it should be, you can't have 3 judges that agree on most things, liven it up by having the judges debate more and say have a room where 1 judge gives a rubbish score and the others score it highly. I'm finding the judging so tedious now.

    They also get criticised for doing things that have already been done before in the block - but that's what happens when you have the same sponsors and suppliers. I mean the whole 'scandi' (I HATE that word) look has been around for far too long too, but so what if it sells! Isn't the point to make the most money at the end!?

    That sucks! Our builder also used a few questionable trades for our house too - it's really disappointing when you don't get what you paid for. We outsourced out kitchen and bathrooms for our build and I'm so glad we did now, as they turned out to be quality (other than the tiler in our bathroom has laid out subway tiles around out bath all wonky.

    It's hard when you're looking at a plan to know what you're really getting. My only real annoyance is not enough bench/prep space. We do have ample storage and like 10 power points lol...

    Default The Block 2016 - Woo Hoo!

    Did you see how cool the candle was that the girls used in their kitchen ? ( I liked that the best but the bench top should have been bigger like the black kitchen was ) I called the candle company today to order some and they said they have been inundated with orders! The companies only a few months old and they sound like really nice people so the promotion on the Block obviously works!

    The show terraces this Sunday, there will be a challenge week where they do the final apartment downstairs, then Auction day should be the Sunday after so 6 November - unless the challenge goes 2 weeks then it will be the week after.
