A Sandringham resident says he's been woken up every morning for more than a month by hammering noises coming from the site of the latest season of The Block.
Another concerned neighbour says she's worried about parking space on her street being taken up by crew trucks.
This follows more than 100 complaints that were made to Auckland Council during filming of the TV3 show's last season in Pt Chevalier.
Filming on the latest season of The Block: Villa Wars - set to debut on TV3 later this month - is well under way on its tiny Sandringham site.
The show sees four teams of two renovating homes, with the winner taking home $100,000 plus profits from a live auction held at the end of the season.
Resident Matt Turner, who lives across the road and works from home, told the Herald loud hammering began every morning at eight, waking him from his morning sleep-in.
"That's the joy of not having a nine to five - unless The Block moves in next door ... the first month it was really bad," he said.
"The last couple of weeks it hasn't been quite so bad, because they're not doing the roof anymore. When they were banging their hammers on the roof every morning ... ew."
Another resident, Sally Koh, said she was worried when her children came to visit there might be nowhere for them to park.
"That might be a bit inconvenient," Koh said.
Last year, the third season of The Block attracted a record 111 complaints to the Auckland Council throughout the four-month shoot.
Of those, 64 concerned resource consent breaches and action was taken in five instances.
Auckland council manager Stefan Naude said one complaint had been received so far related to this season's Block site, which was dismissed.
"The complaint was about the use of a berm. This complaint was found to be unsubstantiated because permission had been given for the use of the berm for construction purposes"
Turner said he and his neighbours were not the type to complain and "could live" with the disruptions.
"They actually picked a pretty good spot I reckon, simply because as I said, my neighbours and I are easy going. They got lucky."
Another resident, Kristelle Thomsen, who is at home most days with her newborn baby, said she had no complaints and the team seemed organised.
"Even with the baby it's absolutely fine. If anything I've got my eye on (the homes) - I want one. I bet they'll be flasher than my house."
The Block NZ: Villa Wars premieres on Tuesday, September 29, with episodes airing every Tuesday and Wednesday.
