You already know a contestant should be at their lowest ebb when foremen Keith and Dan cease shelling out criticism and as an alternative begin wining and eating them.

Though Keith has spent weeks pushing Harry to breaking level with accusations of dishonest and last-minute hurdles (like that notorious entrance door restoration), the constructing supervisor is all of a sudden taking a softer strategy.

Keith and Dan take Harry out for lunch.

After weeks of making an attempt to interrupt him, Keith and Dan take Harry out for lunch.


First, he frolicked at Home 1 making an attempt to help the daddy and daughter duo discover a value efficient and easy answer to their newest constructing woes.

Then later, he and Dan took a flattened Harry out for lunch to bolster his confidence with tales of final 12 months’s underdogs’ Tess and Luke.

Over crimson wine, steak and chips, the foremen reminded Harry that Tess and Luke, had additionally discovered themselves wired and cashless however caught at it till they finally gained The Block.

“They each made me really feel particular,” stated Harry after being shouted the lunch by his constructing website foes.

Harry and Tash have been devastated by their backyard week loss and have been now feeling decidedly overwhelmed by the duty that lay forward.

Dan and Daniel consider skylight placement.

If there’s one factor foreman Dan can’t stand, it’s skylights being wasted.


All 5 groups have been given $35,000 to finish their storage and upstairs studio.

That may sound simple, in any case, how a lot work is concerned in a storage, proper? However, after 10 weeks on The Block, these are the most important areas that the groups have needed to end. And, in fact, some groups are going all out to verify their storage is greater than only a area to park the motor.

Sarah and George have been designing their upstairs condo so it could possibly be used as a separate dwelling for an aged father or mother, lodger or au pair and so are furnishing it with a kitchenette, lavatory and laundry.

These kinds of added extras usually are not an choice for Harry and Tash who’re within the crimson having overspent on their lavish (final place) entrance backyard by a whopping $15,000.

That left them with simply $20,000 to finish their storage and studio flat. So, Harry and Tash have been aiming merely to get their rooms completed with a minimal variety of tradespeople to help. No imply feat contemplating neither of them have any constructing {qualifications} themselves.

It was a very totally different story on the different finish of The Block, the place carpenter Jimmy and spouse Tash have been flush with money after yet another victory for his or her Palm Springs-inspired entrance yard (aka: a desolate design embellished with bricks, rocks and cactuses).

And the Queensland couple imagine they’ve one other successful concept up their sleeve this week with plans to create an workplace and a house fitness center inside their two-storey storage and studio area.

To get their lofty plans throughout the road the pair determined to lastly pull their Hello-Pages lever (not that they wanted any cash saving measures with their kitty of $62,500). Now they’ve 4 free plasterers on website to assist them get their partitions executed whereas they concentrate on titivating the constructing.

Jasmin discovers the deal she thought she had is not a deal.

Jasmin is out of money however that’s OK as a result of Tam goes to provide her a bunch of unused vouchers. Or is she?


This week everyone seems to be following Harry’s lead and going overboard with the skylights.

However Daniel and Jade’s abundance of skylights proved to be a stumbling block for his or her amended plans.

The couple made the choice to flip their studio floorplan on the suggestion of All Stars Andy and Deb to make higher use of the area and the one window (that’s not within the ceiling) within the room.

Nevertheless, once they made that call, they didn’t take note of the skylights that had already been put in. They’ve now found that the brand new place of their lavatory wall would minimize straight by way of the center of one of many overhead lights. The couple determined, to foreman Dan’s horror, to persevere with their revised floorplan by merely plastering over stated skylight.

“There’s $2500 value of skylight that they’re simply going to cowl up as a result of they didn’t go searching them once they modified the floorplan,” stated Dan, scratching his head to bolster his bewilderment on the cash down the drain.

Dan then acquired his ruler out to attempt to present Daniel some options to his skylight cover-up.

“He was speaking about this angle and that angle and I didn’t know whether or not I used to be Arthur or Martha,” a confused Daniel stated, nonetheless fixated on sticking to his plaster plan. It wasn’t till the Velux skylights installer drew Daniel a sketch of Dan’s plan that the sunshine bulb went off that it could work.

Tam denies she made an off camera deal with Jasmin to give her her left over shopping vouchers.

Tam’s response to the suggestion she agreed handy Jasmin a bunch of free purchasing vouchers.


Probably the most artistic pure lighting plans nonetheless have been made by curve-loving Luke and Jasmin, who determined to put in a collection of spherical home windows of their ceiling fairly than the same old rectangular ones.

They’d earlier used a single round skylight of their ensuite, which all three judges adored, but it surely stays to be seen whether or not they’ll be as enamoured by a ceiling that appears just like the aspect of the QEII ocean liner.

“It’s going to look superior or we’re going to appear like a block of cheese,” admitted Jasmin of their porthole proposal.

Regardless of having a depleted price range, the couple additionally deliberate to persevere with their bold design for his or her storage and studio.

That’s as a result of Jasmin believed her prolonged and detailed to-do record would assist them navigate the challenges forward.

“I like an inventory,” stated Jasmin as if she was anticipating this might come as an awesome shock to anybody who had watched her in motion on The Block. She then proceeded to learn aloud each single merchandise on that record to show simply how thorough (aka controlling) she actually was.

Remarkably, Jasmin didn’t appear to be too involved about how she’d handle to tick off that epic to-do record with so few funds left within the financial institution.

Why? As a result of she had one thing that cash-strapped Harry and Tash didn’t have at their disposal — a bestie with a tonne of cash. Or so, she thought.

Jasmin believed Tam, her closest mate on the present, but additionally her chief rival, would give her a few of her “Block bucks” (primarily vouchers to spend at sponsor’s shops) as a result of she had no want to make use of them.

She had clearly forgotten that Jimmy and Tam are of “the win at any value” faculty of game-playing.

In spite of everything, they’ve already twice stolen victory from Jasmin and Luke through the use of their bonus gnome level. So, it got here as a shock to no-one (besides Jasmin) that Jimmy wasn’t having a bar of serving to his mates out of their monetary black gap.

He insisted that Jasmin wouldn’t get a single sponsored cent until she was ready to commerce one thing in return.

For sure, Jasmin was lower than impressed with that association as she was adamant Tam had promised to reward her the Block Bucks when the cameras weren’t rolling.

However the one factor rolling that we noticed have been Tam’s eyes on the suggestion she would have ever promised such a deal.
