Welcome to Camalot - Here you will see all of Scott's Handy work, oh and Frankie too!
For the first time in the history of The Block host Scott Cam is set to take on renovating what is being dubbed as, Camalot, Scott's residence, he is sharing the role with his trusty mate, Frankie his beloved Kelpie.
With not only years of building experience but also years of Block experience we can't help but feel excited for what Scott will create.
Scott Spoke with Insider Style and The Block Shop to give us the lowdown.
"You’re right. I say ‘the biggest and best Block ever’ most years because we base that on square meterage and size. But this year is, without a doubt, the biggest show anyone has done anywhere in the world." "Its huge! We had intersections and carparks and we had a shop selling coffee. And the village square was out the front of my place.”
Camalot, as it will be know throughout the season, is "Scott's place" he renovates alongside the couples, not to be apart of the competition but rather to add another element of something "new" to Australia's most popular renovating show, which has had an amazing 17 seasons on Australian Television.
One thing we know for sure is someone has to be helping Scott Cam style Camalot, and we know who.... but we can't tell you.... yet!

Meet Frankie, the star of The Block 2022
When Scotty Cam arrived at The Block this year, he wasn't alone. Scotty bought with him his pride and joy, Frankie. "This was a perfect opportunity to introduce Frankie'. She's a ripper, she's very pretty and a beautiful dog."
Frankie the day she was adopted from the RSPCA and now the working dog and family pet is a reality star on The Block 2022 Treechange.
The Cam Family rescued Frankie from the RSPCA and is a working dog on their cattle property. She's the third kelpie he's rescued from the same shelter.
Scotty has her well trained and she has no stage fright being in front of the camera. "She is a clever girl and we've trained her to switch between being a family pet, as well as a working farm dog, and now a reality television star.
Frankie can do everything from playing dead to manoeuvring ride-on mowers but want to know Scotty's favourite trick? "When I turn around, she jumps on my back, right up onto my shoulders."
Want to know more about Frankie? Well she has her own Instagram account! You can follow her here.
For the first time in Block history, our very own Scotty Cam is on the tools and it's time to reveal his handy work on his very own tree change.
With not only years of building experience but also years of Block experience, it's the moment we've all been waiting for...Scott Cam's first room reveal!
While he may have got a head start on our couples, it's safe to say Scott Cam (and Frankie) have wowed the judges with their first room reveal at Camalot.
Let's take a closer look at Scotty's handy work!
Scotty's Master Ensuite oozes a luxury country vibe. This bathroom has the perfect mix of deep blue baltic tones on the walls paired with the gorgeous star patterned stone tiles. A snug fireplace with statement original artwork, Cornelius by Anna Blatman holding pride of place above. This bathroom is Aussie through and through, with the most perfect toilet roll holder we have ever seen, the Aussie Coat of Arms.
The details in this house we could look at all day and find new treasure, even the toilet brush has style!
Check out all of the products used in Scott's Master Ensuite here.
Kitchenette & Study
Paying homage to both the country and the historical features of the home, Scotty and his team have set up a cosy yet practical room to enable the team to work on site and keep the cuppas freely flowing until the main kitchen is ready.
From the warm tones of the original floor boards, the wall panelling reflecting the house's era and the blue colour palette in the Cloud Sofa and in the freedom kitchenette, this room is a real haven for work and relaxation.
Finished off with a spectacular artwork by talented Melbourne artist, Victoria Hutchins and the gorgeous Sweet Sheep by Tia Alysse. And is that Slim Aaron's print we spy above the fireplace? Scotty has great taste!
Take a look at all of the products used in Scotty's Kitchenette and study here.
The Harpoon Blue walls paired with the original timber floorboards create the perfect place for Scotty to rest his head each night and hang his hat after a gruelling day on the set of The Block. With the open fireplace crackling away, he can lay back and admire his Michael Wolfe original artwork and turn on his Framing to a T - TV Mirror without a concern for those contestants painting through the night. If only Shayna was judging the Kinsman walk in robe as there is storage for days! Adam Cullen's famous "Growler" Print has pride of place in the walk in robe and reminds Scotty of his best mate, Frankie the Kelpie. Scotty will always have his suit pressed and will be looking sharp with the V-Zug Refresh Butler - Logies anyone?
Take a look at all of the products featured in Scott's Master Bedroom and Walk in robe here.
Verandah & Hallway Entrance
Take a look at the beautiful verandah and entrance Scotty and his team have created as a part of the first stage of his tree-change renovation. The verandah features natural timber furniture by Black Mango and the hallway is dressed with stunning original artworks by renowned Victorian Artist, Michael Wolfe, set the tone for this beautiful country home.

This bathroom will stay warm and toasty on those cold country nights with a rustic open fireplace. Scotty is proving to be quite the fine art collector with a gorgeous Angela Hawkey original artwork above the fireplace and an Australian Native Banksia original painting by Adele Naidoo.

Details, details, details, we cannot get enough of Scott's Place!
The Block Shop gives you access to all of the products in Scott's Bathroom right here!
From the original artwork of neighbouring Hanging Rock to horizontal-set panelling and a soft colour palette that reflects the heritage past of his home, Scotty’s guest bedroom ticked all the boxes of a traditional country home, but with contemporary touches.
The working fireplace – a signature of his rooms so far – and a classic chaise longue are offset by Robert Gordon sconces, a cheeky garden gnome ornament and a custom “Tools Down!” embroidery to create a room that would be at home anywhere in the area, but can only belong to Scotty Cam!
The Marie Claire Mirror a perfect vintage touch
The Robert Gordon sconce creates a statement above the bed.
Is that an Anna Blatman original we spy above the fireplace?
Jessie Rigby really knows how to create a piece of art with a stunning colour palette.

Guest Bedroom and Ensuite
When it comes to Scotty’s room, once again he’s gone all out for a heritage feel but with the best modern comforts.
The plan was to present two bathrooms and a bedroom for our resident Block Boss, but after loaning his tiling team to Omar and Oz when their tiler came down with Covid, he only managed one of each – but what rooms they were!
Feature items include Kabinett Hotel Transfer Print and Scooter Print, Rhino Rug Candy Heart rug and Robert Gordon Rose Quartz Dish Sconce lights all combining for a bedroom/ensuite that adds to his build again.
Scott Cam and his team are producing a truely beautiful country home, check it out here.
Pretty in Pink, Scott's room is full of The Block Shop goodness shop the room here.
One of my favourite parts to this ensuite is the layout and thought that's gone into it, (oh and the rug , of course!) that sensor light near the toilet is a stroke of genius Scotty!

Tim and Tyler's Challenge House
Tonight saw the couples complete this week's challenge at Tim and Tyler's House.
Recently the contestants got a special letter delivered to their self-made letterboxes.It was hand-written, and asked the teams to help renovate a house for two best mates in need Tim and Tyler.
The boys have special needs and require 24-hour care and Tim's mother Kay a fellow Macedon Ranges local, asked their neighbours for help.
In the letter, Kay explained she purchased a three-bedroom home in Gisborne where Tim and Tyler now live. She wanted the boys to be able to maintain their happy household for many years to come, but needed help in doing so.
After receiving Kay's letter, Rachel was brought to tears and the rest of the Block heads jumped on board and were more than happy to help.
Shelley Craft pictured with Kay and Tyler's mother Sandy, also pictured Tyler and Tim at their home before the renovation with Shelley.
Tom said "It's the most important challenge, and I think it'll be the most rewarding challenge we'll do on The Block."
The teams met Scott Cam and Shelley Craft at the boys home as well as Kay and Tyler's mother Sandy.
Scott told the teams they have nine days to complete Tim and Tyler's House Renovation Challenge and will be working in two teams.
Team one consisted of Rachel and Ryan, Tom and Sarah-Jane and Duncan and Dan.
Team two was made up of Dylan and Jenny, Sharon and Ankur and Omar and Oz.
Team One renovated the kitchen, the living and lounge area and Tim's room, while team two were allocated dining room, the patio and Tyler's room.
Darren Palmer was the judge for this challenge, he Scott and Shelley joked that the real winners here were "Team 3" which was local business', volunteers from the community and The Block Sponsors for making this all possible.
Team One's finished lounge room complete with new carpet, Grafico mural and sensory options for Tim and Tyler.
Team one also took care of Tim's Room with help from Grafico walls to create a blue room inspred by his love of water.
Tyler's Room renovated by Team Two, again with Grafico wall mural incorporating his favourite things Essendon Football Club and cars, huge thanks to the club for this signed jersey.
Team Two took care of the Patio with great sposor of The Block Stratco, but they didn't stop there.
When Omar and Oz and the rest of team two heard about the boys love of basketball and golf they rallied together to complete the back yard also alongside the help of many volunteers and local Macedon ranges businesses.
Tim and Tyler's backyard is now complete with it's own Vegepod.
Team One ended up taking the win based on guest judge, the one and only Darren Palmer's decision. But we think it's safe to say this challenge it did not matter about the money. Scott Cam said it was "an absolute privilege to make thing's more comfy" for Tim and Tyler.
Team Two rallied to get an extra $20,000 for Tim and Tyler's families to get further and much needed renovations on the bathroom. Rachel said some people have "alot of rain in their lives, and need a little sunshine"
And that is what it's all about, the power of television, incredible support from sponsors and a whole lot of heart.
If you would like to show the amazing sponsors who supported this project hop online and shop the products in these rooms.
Enjoy your new digs Tim and Tyler.
Living and Dining
As Scotty revealed his Living and Dining Room he said to the contestants, "Welcome to the best house on The Block" let us show you inside.
From the huge open fireplace – complete with fittings for cooking! – in a brick feature wall to the ten-seater custom dining table from Christian Cole facing a timber dresser, Scott Cam’s Living Dining area was filled with luxe comforts to redefine country chic.
With exposed timber beams above and herringbone brick pavers below, the room is home to custom artworks, two lounges with paired occasional chairs, coffee tables, porta-timber wall accents and ceiling to floor sheers, everything Scott needs to bring the heart of his home to life!
"Scott Cam's house feels like a home", Tom and Sarah-Jane said.
Scott's house was styled to perfection, featuring beautiful artisans and small business's such as Mimo Pots. And lets just take a minute for the 'Soft Clay' Lounge' by Globewest, that colour is so beautiful we want to add to cart immediately!
With lots of op-shop finds and beautiful artwork Scott's room has a homely country feel and we LOVE it! Artwork featured is 'Songlines' by Simone Thomson and 'Gumnut stripes and the tall vase' by Alicia Cornwell.

Working From Home and Shed Space
Scott Cam has shown us a master class in beautiful building work and creative styling, but wait until you see what the team have done in this space!
Whether you are working from home or kicking back to relax, Scotty has created the ultimate office and media room at his Block home, ‘Camelot’. Featuring a huge Grandview projector screen and a Winning Appliances projector in front of a Koala sofa bed, entertainment buffs will be in media room heaven. Or for those wanting to work from home Scotty has decked out the home office with a repurposed vintage dining table-desk paired with a Black Mango Rattan chair.
The real show stopper in this space is the Southern Cross Skylight's in the shed, we all know Scott is about as proud as they come to be Australian, but for those that don't know he also has the southern cross tattooed on his shoulder.
Scott has a love for Australian memorabilia, so what better way to encompass that into his home!
Scott's house has highlighted so much innovation within the building industry this year with triple glazed windows, Southern Cross Skylights, a 3D building in the making and even more to come in the next week! These skylights are thanks to Velux who spent the best part of the week installing this custom design for Scott Cam.
This space has so many options, for those wanting to work from home Scotty has decked out the home office with a repurposed vintage dining table-desk paired with a Black Mango Rattan chair.
The real show stopper in this space is the Southern Cross Skylight's in the shed, we all know Scott is about as proud as they come to be Australian, we can see a few bush bash parties taking place in here!

Pool Cabana, Landscape and Exterior
From the driveway fountain, past the magnificent tiled pool with built-in spa to the 3D printed poolside cabana and more, Scotty’s grand landscaping was always going to be a show stopper.
Making best use of the established trees, landscaper Dave Franklin built a large front lawn (perfect for croquet, the contestants discovered!) serviced by a Husqvarna automated mower, is overlooked by a wrap-around verandah featuring rattan tables and chairs, with an adjacent full outdoor kitchen and pizza oven.
And then there’s the cabana!
Built by a computer operated “printer” filled with concrete extruded in a precise pattern to build up interior and exterior walls, then with Aluplast windows and doors (complete with Viridian triple-glazed glass) added, it’s an architectural masterpiece.
Inside past the thousands of hand-laid finger tiles in the shower area and Kinsman kitchenette (complete with beer tap) it’s a short walk to the lounge dining area featuring original works from local artists - a garden retreat fit for the King Of The Block.
For those that have been with us for the season, you will know I am next level obsessed with Scott's House, so prepare yourself for a good sticky beak, get yourself comfy, because choosing my favourite photo's from David Cook Photography is like choosing a favourite child!!
The Block Shop's very own SUPER-woman! One of the hardest workers you will ever meet and another mammoth effort this year from all of the cast and crew, time to hang up the workboots and roll out the Glamswags for some much needed rest, they are like sleeping on a cloud Sarah tells us!

Scott's house is an entertainers delight, with enough seated spaces to keep everybody comfy! We love that he has laid these bricks in a herringbone pattern to match the inside of his house. And let's take a minute for the pizza oven!!
This pool cabana is kind of a big deal, a 3D printed building with beautiful curves, its a VERY big yes from us!
I'm getting 70's pool party vibes with these Trend Outdoor Sofa's by TH Brown looking like a little ray of sunshine out the front!

Scott and Frankie's Dream Team, Spence, Sarah, Scott Cam, Duncan and Frankie and Scott and Shelley of course! Thank you for creating the country homestead dreams are made of!
Back at the beginning of The Block Treechange, Scott Cam created a kitchenette and living room, well now that he's completed the full house that kitchenette got removed and made into another bedroom, making Camalot a Five Bedroom house!

Scott Cam has had one question pop up all throughout the 2022 Block Season, who owns Camalot?
In a Block first Scott Cam and a team of trades built alongside the contestants this year at The Block Treechange. "Camalot" as it affectionately became known, was a great space for all of the teams to come together. "With the contestants so far apart we had to have a way to bring everyoe together for filming" Scott told Insider Style.
Scott spoke with co-host and friend Shelley Craft to announce, he doesn't own Camalot.
