It's generating strong public interest and support for the four competing teams.
This weekend the homes are being opened up for public viewing on Saturday and Sunday from 10am till 2pm, giving fans the chance to see the renovations up close.
KidsCan Charitable Trust has been chosen as the official charity partner for the open home weekend and will benefit from gold coin donation entry.
Its In Our Own Backyard programme involves more than 4600 donors who support Kiwi kids who are living in poverty and are in need of food, shoes, raincoats or basic healthcare and hygiene items.
"Many families sponsor a child in developing countries which is awesome, but sometimes I think we forget about the kids just over the fence," one KidsCan supporter says.
KidsCan will be at The Block NZ Open Homes this weekend, as the official charity partner.
Entry is free but the charity will be collecting donations and raising awareness and support for its programme.
A big crowd is expected but as some roads will be closed from 7am-4pm both days visitors are urged to take the free buses, walk or cycle. Lake Rd remains open with a "stop go" system and Auckland Transport has a cycle valet system on site where people can leave their bikes.
The Block NZ open homes, corner of Eversleigh and Lake roads, Belmont. Free 813 buses from Takapuna and Devonport will run every 15 minutes. Visit TV3.co.nz/theblock for more information on the open homes.
