SIMON and Shannon Vos are the team to beat on The Block Glasshouse.

The Coffs Harbour-raised brothers won Sunday night's first room reveal with their yellow-accented guest bedroom.

The 27-year-old plumber and 34-year-old painter are off to a roaring start, earning three scores of nine out of a possible 10 from judges Shaynna Blaze, Neale Whitaker and Darren Palmer.

Blaze was particularly impressed with the free-standing wall, which doubled as a bed head and a walk-through wardrobe on the other side.

"I'm stoked," Simon told APN.

"We thought the first week was one of the most important to win. You can keep gauge of how you're going and what the judges are looking for. We didn't know what everyone else's styles were going to be like, or even how our style would turn out. It's a big moment that we wanted."

It has been a drama-filled first week on the show for the brothers, who both crashed the Suzuki car they were given to use for transport during renovations.

Shannon backed into a pole and then on the morning of reveal day Simon got a shock when he was woken from a power nap in the parked car to find someone had run into him in a shopping centre car park.

"We were freaking out," Simon said.

"I thought 'Oh no we're going to have to pay for it' but I think they enjoyed the drama."

The brothers aren't expecting to win Monday night's jury vote, a new feature this season where the five teams judge each others' rooms for an additional cash prize.

"There will definitely be strategy played," Simon said.

"The guys who win the room and $10,000, you don't want to give them another $5000 and we saw that coming. But you never know people might play fair; they might be honest."

The Block Glasshouse airs Monday night at 7.30pm on Channel 9/WIN/NBN.
