Sophie: It is but because we’re renting we can’t do any structural changes.
Libby: What was your favourite room to renovate so far?Sophie: I think
my favourite room….it’s a toss up….my favourite is probably the kitchen and the backyard.
Miss Jordan: We look forward to seeing those ones!Brodey: What were you feeling when Dale asked you if you were a zombie?
Sophie: Umm was I asleep? I think I was pretty tired. I actually didn’t remember it until I saw it on tv lastnight. I elbowed him last night when I saw it on telly and said “I didn’t know you were doing that with thediary cam!”
Olivia Y: Is Keith really as bad as he looks?Sophie: Keith really wants the houses to be the best that they can be so they are structurally safe. We werelucky that Keith was very nice to us because we did what he said. He realised we were first time renovatorsand would listen to him. Some of the other couples wanted to do things their way and he got a big angry. But
he’s really a nice guy.
Hayden: What was the scariest thing on The Block?Sophie: Beside the rollercoaster? Umm, it was scary getting the judges scores. I nearly brok
e Dale’s hand
squeezing it so hard. Every reveal was scary!Lilli: Which challenge did you like doing the most?Sophie: I really liked the upholstery challenge. But I really enjoyed the table making challenge that comes up.There is also a challenge like the inter-school sports. We have one of those -
house sports. It’s really fun.
Trent: What got you into the style of vintage?Sophie: Dale and I really like recycling and not necessarily buying new stuff if there is old stuff you can keep.We like to preserve things. Also, other couples go and buy new things and they always look the same. Wewanted ours to stand out. We like to use antiques. And we like using things for new purposes
like the bedhead and the light made out of jars.Ethan: Who do you reckon will be the hardest to beat?Sophie: Brad and Lara have a big house which is hard to beat. The brothers have been a bit sneaky with their
lounge and kitchen, that’s a bit different to ours. I think Brad and Lara have a house that is really neutral and
simple that might appeal to people. Hopefully people get our
“creative weirdness” and they’ll like it.
Ethan: What challenge was hardest?
Sophie: The mirror one was really hard; we didn’t know what to do and we were just trying to make it well.
That one was probably the hardest. Actually there is one coming up
it’s a builder app.
Miss Jordan: Did you know what the others were doing each week or did people keep it secret?Sophie: We were very open and told everyone what we were doing. We were in Brad and Lara
’s house all the
time looking at styling things.Brandon: How much money do you think your house will go for?
