Shannon Vos, the larrikin tradie turned interior design consultant who won The Block Glasshouse in 2014 with his brother Simon, has upsized in the Sutherland Shire with wife Lisa.

With two young boys, Dusty Mac and Raffa, they needed more space than their two-bedroom Cronulla townhouse-style apartment.

They’ve recently bought at Port Hacking where they spent $1,285,000 on a mid-’80s four- bedroom home.

“We wanted a home that will evolve with the kids’ needs as they grow from toddlers into teenagers and this house fits the bill perfectly. Pool, backyard, huge driveway, plenty of space, battle-axe block and a great neighbourhood,” Vos, who runs interior design practice Vos Creative, said.

“We have plans to renovate the whole home, but we don’t need to change anything or ever extend.”

They are hoping to turn the renovation into an online series with realestate.com.au, with no doubt a few mentions for Beaumont Tiles, Carpet Court and Wideline Windows and Doors for whom he is an ambassador.

“We’re excited and totally blessed to be able to be in the housing market for starters and to be able to raise our two boys in such a beautiful area,” he said.

The Block Prahran apartment renovated by the Coffs Harbour-raised brothers sold under the hammer for $1.9 million, some $335,000 over reserve, plus they also pocketed the $100,000 prizemoney.

Shannon, who had popped the question to Lisa just before filming for the Nine show, wanted to win the hit renovation show to buy a “love nest” by the beach with Lisa.

It cost $750,000 in 2015 for the two-level apartment.

The keen surfer has recently been working on a Torquay home project for a client.
