  2. Picture of the door is below. Take note this is the main door, but I'm selling the bedroom door. Design is the same though.
  3. Have a spare unused HDB bedroom solid timber door for sale. Comes with lockset (which costs about $80 outside). Self-collect at Treelodge @ Punggol please. Dimensions of door is approx 91cm x 210cm, think it's the standard for new HDB flats. Letting go at $180, contact me at 8112 7014 to deal fast, thanks!
  4. Just an update of this super budget renovation. 1. Installed a wrought iron main gate for $280 from Homely @ Geylang. 2. Decided to stick with current windows. 3. Might be difficult to do laminated flooring for kitchen due to washing machine. Still thinking through the options - homogeneous, laminated or cement screed? 4. Contractor has said it's possible to create multiple outlet points, small problem. Also decided to get a wall-mounted kitchen sink so as not to have to build a sink support! 5. Sticking to current config of a simple long table as kitchen. 6. Painting will be done last for the house, so haven't really ventured into it yet.
  5. Enbloc is not announced yet, but I guess maybe by 10 years cos it's already 40+ years old? It's not really in good condition now, so need to renovate to rent out.
  6. Thanks, your reply is very much appreciated! Actually the reason for this super tight budget is because the flat is really old and we don't know how long more before it will go enbloc, so we really don't wanna spend too much to spruce it up for tenants. But the condition is so nasty now that we can't even get people to rent haha. Think I'll remove the main gate first and see how it looks!
  7. I'm renovating a relative's very run-down 40-yr old HDB flat to liveable condition. As such, I'm trying to stretch my dollar as much as possible for the following items and will appreciate any feedback from fellow shoestring renovators. 1. Main gate replacement: The cheapest I've found so far is $280 (Wellmax)/$300 (CNS Metal), inclusive installation (their $188/$158 prices on the Straits Times ads are for supply only, not install). Although forum reviews have been poor, I'm not really concerned as this flat may not even see beyond the next 5 years. Are there any cheaper alternatives to these wrought iron gates? At these prices, I'm tempted to just remove the gates and do with just a front door. 2. Replacement of window to sliding window: What's the cheapest psf for sliding windows seen? Unipac does it for about $13 psf, any cheaper? 3. Laminated flooring: Got a few quotations between $2.30 to $2.80 psf. Will this be the cheapest way to redo the flooring or is there any cheaper option? I guess cement screeding for the whole house will cost only about $600-800 but given that this is a 50sqm flat, spending just over 1k on nicer-looking flooring seems more plausible. 4. As this is a very old flat, there only seems to be 1 water outlet point so currently there's only 1 90cm metal sink, no porcelain sinks for brushing teeth etc. Is it possible to create another one? What's the rough cost? Also, the sink looks really tired, what's the cheapest supply and install for a metal sink available? 5. Kitchen. The present kitchen is just a long table with an induction cooker. Not really inclined to change anything. I did see a $995 kitchen from IKEA, anyone used that before and found it decent? My current kitchen area is about 7.6ft long. What's the cheapest per foot run for a kitchen that you've seen? 6. Painting. Likely to DIY to save costs, what's the cheapest paint available? Really don't need quality, super budget is the key! Thanks in advance for reading this. Might seem funny for those of you who strive to get the nicest or most-value-for-money renovation done, when this thread is purely about the cheapest available option.
  8. Had something similar happen to me. TV and some appliances were stolen. Not once but twice. The circumstances of the case led me to conclude it simply had to be someone working within the week. Most likely the electrician and his workers. The items totalled more than 1k in monetary value but I'm currently still withholding the final 5% payment, which doesn't come up that figure either. What else can I do? The police are taking terribly long to investigate this case. Look, I know burglary is a relatively small offence compared to the rapes/murders/slashings but the way investigations are proceeding, the culprit might have sold the items, take a nice beach holiday and still have enough time to study for his O Levels. Weirdest thing is, the exact same thing happened to my neighbour! Electrical workers doing some stuff, they left the house; when they returned, TV + others were gone. Both of us surmised that it could not have been anything other than an inside job. Items were stolen the VERY DAY they were shifted into the house, meaning only the workers would have seen these items. Would you randomly break into a flat on the VERY DAY that valuables were shifted in so you can catch the owners offguard? Go figure... And yeah, I know it's my fault for not locking all the stuff up, but there was very limited space to work with and my lease had expired so I had no other choice.
  9. Self-employed, so very leh cheh to submit the docs! =(
  10. Nobody seems to be replying to all these, but in any case, I think you can try googling for Faith Coat or something.
  11. Hi insane, we have the exact same layout! Blk 306A Stack 39? My HLE not approved yet though, so still waiting for that before I can get my keys. Plus we haven't ROM yet, so may have to delay slightly longer after that as well...
  12. Can I have the contact no for this? Thanks!
  13. Can I confirm that Poh Chin has closed down? Tried to Google for his number and called the handphone plus office numbers, all not in service. Any other places that do a good job for this at a reasonable price? Collecting my BTO flat keys soon, but as always, the HDB given wall tiles are soooo ugly!
  14. Seems a tad exp to me. Not just a few items, but just about everything seems to be at least 10-20% more exp than the quotes I've seen from other contractors. Very simple example, 5rm flat painting I've seen about $1000, but yours is $1350. Wrought iron gate about $400, yours $500. Lights installation $8 per point, yours is $10.
