Hard to Beat

I’m a fan of the Block NZ and am particularly enjoying the stylish interiors we have seen so far this year. Creative power couple Alex and Corban are definitely the ones to beat; they have bucket loads of style, a master plan for the house, and are winning challenges left, right and centre which equals more money in the bank for their build.

Their ability to create something incredibly stylish, that looks like it has walked off the pages of a home decor magazine, means I wasn’t overly surprised to learn that this isn’t their first building project. And when you see what they created out of some run-down shipping containers you’d be hard pressed to think that they haven’t got their names on the winners cheque already. Corban (who has an engineering background) designed the house with his surfing buddy (an architecture graduate).

Here it is folks, Alex and Corban’s first foray into home building, pretty ah-MAZING right?! And eco-friendly to boot.
