Trixie and Johnno are a modest, down to earth, hardworking couple with an open affection and love for each other. Their team motto is “if you work hard and be kind amazing things will happen”. Their three children, Eamon (12), Ella (10) and Kelly (8), are their motivation for entering The Block. The oldest of the Sky High competitors have plenty of experience with renovating on a budget, having gutted and rebuilt a couple of homes and spruced up another. They recently sold their latest house to put all their money into therapy for their youngest son Kelly who was diagnosed as autistic as a toddler. “We’ve battled hard to make ends meet. The Block is an opportunity of a lifetime to make a real difference in our children’s lives. It’s made for us,” Trixie said. They describe their style as eclectic and artistic. They like to mix the vintage with the new and hippy retro with modern. They promise no conservative or boring designs on The Block.
