  1. Hi, If you have the intention to rent out the whole unit and want to avoid the hassle of going back to open the door each time a potential tenant wants to view the place, you may either allocate a viewing time slot for viewing. Usually we will allocate 1 weekday evening and 1 weekend for viewings, 1 hr each will be enough. By renting out the place on your own you save on agent service fees but you have to do your own marketing, answer phone/email enquiries, conduct viewings, and prepare your own paperwork. Alternatively you may want to engage the service of a real estate professional to manage all these enquiries and viewings for you. An agent will be able to minimize hassle for you by taking care of marketing, enquiries, qualifying of tenants, paperwork etc. By engaging the services of an agent he/she will be able to help you manage all lease related matters during the lease term. If its a vacant unit you may just leave the keys with the agent, but just make sure you go through the inventory list with him first. If you require more advise, feel free to contact me. Shalom & regards, [remove property agent contact]
  2. Yeah, I've been very busy supervising the last leg of the renovation works and moving in. Well, most of the works are done except for the wallpaper (just arrived in SIngapore today) and also the kitchen hob backsplash. As we need to wait for the glass to be up before installing the hood, I have not been able to test the unit. Will only be able to do so after Saturday. I got it for 900 at Aik Leong which is located at Alexandra Village (one of the whole row of electrical shops). I did find a cheaper quote by Everjoint (888) but since I was getting the RInnai hob from AIk Leong, might as well order everything from them. No need for me to travel all the way to Everjoint just to place order. You can look for Mrs Koh from Aik Leong if you are interested.
  3. wah...i ordered the Simmons Escapade with memory foam pillowtop..... am i gonna have sleepless nights? My wife always complain that the aircon temperature is too cold. perhaps this will be just right for her.
  4. More progress pictures... MBR Bathroom Kitchen Cabinets Mum's Wardrobe Its all starting to take shape. I hope everything will be completed in time for handover on the 25/26th May. Seems like we still have a lot to do....
  5. Progress Pictures! Kronotex laminates for bedrooms Glassworks Bedroom doors (unfinished)
  6. i dont have cabinet base, no fridge base, no washing machine base.
  7. Well, yesterday the carpenters uploaded all the cabinet carcasses to the flat. Today they started to install. There are some dimensions for the cabinets that are not right, and have to be remade. When I visited the flat after work, the guys are still working. First time I see any of the sub-cons work past 6pm! WOW! I was quite delighted to see the kitchen tall units carcass up, and my mum's room's and also the MBR WIW. BUT I soon realised that the MBR WIW dimensions are wrong, so quickly notified the carpenters and ID. They will be rectified. Also for my mum's room wardrobe, due to the stoopid slanted wall (see my floor plan), they realised that the door nearest to the wall cannot be fully opened to allow the drawer to extend fully. So that has to be shifted a little. No bigggie I think. My wife and I felt sympathetic for the carpenters as they spent the whole day installing the carcasses and almost 2 third of their work has gone to waste. Some of the blocks have to be re-done so I hope that we will still be on schedule. ANd I must emphasis again. HDB architects, engineers, builders ALL COCK! the wall that is next to my mum's wardrobe, is not only horizontally slanted, but vertically AS WELL! No matter how well the carpenters' workmanship is, I tell you, there will be a visible difference of the pelmut's width from top to bottom. It will be farking ugly! Pictures tomorrow!
  8. megaman and philips both have dimmable CFLs. cost about 35 each bulb. but there are no downlight holders that can be fixed with those bulbs leh
  9. got mine at aik leong. good price. look for mrs koh.
  10. no i dont have the address. its along the row of shops next to Heng Tyres
  11. LG/Samsung should be going for around 90/pfr. So for 40 ft you should only be paying 3600. It might be more expensive if you have an integrated sink. If you can afford it, go for caesarstone or silstone. beautiful material. 100% non-porous so easy to maintain. can last you for a lifetime.
  12. i saw a replica at Genova shop along Bendemeer Road. ONLY 168. Dunno still there or not though. Was quite interested to get it but dunno where it can fit into my flat. Go check it out!
  13. Thanks for sharing the info. I do not that due to building structural movements there will be cracks in the future. That cannot be prevented. Will just have to patch them up when the time comes. As for paint, we chose ICI cos Nippon's color palette is quite limited, and also according to Steven, Nippon paint is mixed on the spot at the shops upon order and may not have the same consistency as ICI which is mixed at the factory. Imagine you need to get some paint to touch up the walls and they turn out to be different?
  14. I was at my fren's housewarming the other day, they have a ceiling box light in the study, and also a row of fluorescent hidden under the top hung cabinets, which are above the desktop, to me enough for work. However if you mean just using cove light on the ceiling, the i think its not enough. You will still need table lamps for task lighting. Personally I like my working areas like kitchen, study to be bright and other areas to be more mood.
