My Extreme Makeover Mansionette

196 posts in this topic

:paint: Hello to all the T-blogger here

I just got my keys for my Mansionette @ the north side area.

My reno had actually started a few days ago, but just the hacking of cabinets only, nothing much. I will not post the current hse pic as the plc is really in super bad condition, just worry some of u might vomit after viewing...Hahaha I will try to post the progress of the reno soon after the tiles and everything is hack and clear.

Meanwhile i will just post my floorplan for u all to view...

I believe tat some of the Mansionette owner here will have the same layout as me... Hehe Hopefully everyone can bear with me to see the same old thing.

Mine in Kovan area. My ground floor study room has been hacked and converted into a dinning room and the kitchen door has also been relocated by the [previous owner. Well save some money and leave it alone and make the best of the existing layout.

Mine met a ID today and was quoted 70K for what we had planned :o

Went through the list with them and see how's the final amount.

Cheers

Same here. We gonna hack off the study rm at 1st flr to have a longer & open concept kitchen cum dining. And it will also brighten up the area by doing tat.

R u going to overhaul the whole hse? For me, I will. As the condition is real bad. And i also went to a few ID and they quoted me close to $90K :( which is too expensive.

Anyway, hope ur ID will revise the quote and offer u a beta amt. ;)

Hi Charemme,

It's 20yrs old flat. We r the third owner.

Ya...The previous owner really superb! The first time we visit the hse, it is already full of junk tat u just can't imagine.

The reason we bout it becoz although the hse is full of junk, we can feel breeze coming into the hse and is not stuffy at all. And it a unblock unit facing a forest with nice greenery.

Ya. U r rite. The hse is glad to found a new owner, and next door owner will be glad to hv a clean neighbour too. I hv walked pass the whole flr units, the unit tat we bout is the worse of the worse.

Waao......it's really so bad?....but anyway, the advantage is that you are free to do a major transformation without hesitation, unlike mine whereby condition is still good and it's a waste to make-over!

I am very sure that you are all ready for the major make-over....keep posting...

Cheers~!
