They had been so forward of the sport that whereas everybody – significantly the twins – scrambled to get their portray completed, Mitch and Mark had been sunning themselves on the seaside.
In equity, Mitch and Mark had confronted their fair proportion of challenges getting their toilet accomplished. Foreman Keith shut their total web site down when he found stay wires stretched throughout the bottom outdoors.
And that was simply the beginning of their issues. Later, when their builder Jason returned with the final of their whopping 3m tall tiles at the back of his van, having pushed it away to chop off web site to get round guidelines banning the usage of energy instruments at night time on The Block, he clipped the kerb with the wheel of his van and smashed the tile within the course of.

Whereas it regarded like Kirsty must go and choose new tiles, costing them money and time, the sponsor got here to the rescue with a substitute batch.
In the meantime it was one draining saga after one other over on the twins’ main bedroom.
Switching up their ground plan to make use of the slab meant for his or her two-car storage as a bed room and ensuite had but once more created unexpected bills.
Having been waylaid by their concreting dramas, the twins had been racing towards the clock to get their room prepped for waterproofing. It meant having to get jobs that might usually take three days to finish, accomplished in only one.
After a fast go to to the dual’s chaotic web site, Ronnie surmised that, in the event that they obtained their indoor/out of doors toilet completed it might be the one to beat.
And due to the cubby home problem, Ronnie and Georgia have that game-changer gnome.
