Stalking reality TV episode 2

Welcome to my second reality TV stalking. Brothers Shannon and Simon's apartment this time. For those of you who don't know the contestants start with a fixed budget and vouchers from certain suppliers/sponsors. Each week they compete to complete the best room, winning more money to help with following rooms. No wins and the budget gets tight by the end of the build. What starts as high end may rapidly drop to low. See more over on The Block. In the meantime the real estate listing is here while it lasts.

Stalking reality TV episode 1

How do you describe one of Australia's most popular reality TV shows? I cheated and consulted Wikipedia.

The Block is an Australian reality television series broadcast on the Nine Network. The series follows four or, more recently, five couples as they compete against each other to renovate houses and sell them at auction for the highest price.

Except this time it's an old office block they gut and convert into 5 apartments. I've been stalking and the latest Block renos are listed ready for auction. Welcome to Dee and Darren's apartment. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking an Australian icon

You may be impressed by the contemporary extension and renovation of this 1908 brick house by SJB. I'm impressed by the renovation of that great Australian icon, the outdoor toilet, the relic of a time before sewerage, the dunny. So many have been demolished or left to decay as inadequate and forgotten "tool sheds". I think this one is the first 5 star dunny I have seen. I'm stalking Aussie icons in Balmain, Sydney. Link here while it lasts.

The Brooklyn Home Company

Real estate developers, architecture and interior design consultants...The Brooklyn Home Company pretty much does it all. They know what will sell, and what will capture your attention and your heart. And these spaces from several of their development projects would have me signing on the dotted line.

Stalking leftovers

It's about time! I've been stalking but not sharing and it has to end. As you know I am fussy, particular, choosy, picky and hard to please. Not quite right, bad photos, more photos please, house is amazing furniture is deplorable, can't quite put my finger on it listings but all with something that has me nodding "yes". It's a bumper offering this week. We have the usual terrace houses, some retro gems that need saving, my first fish tank stalking and Jamie Durie's house. Some have even sold I've been holding onto to them so long! Click on the images to head to the listings. All via realestate.com.au.
