Unbelievable my renovation topic for our first flat is still here, although the pics are all now broken links.
Now after 11 years, unexpectedly we decided to buy a second property that have a bigger layout than our current 5 room hdb.
In 2010 just 2 of us : complete 5 room home renovation project without an ID , as I go through the post , it was a journey with a lot of efforts . I have to manage the time , make decision and pass instructions for all types of question . The end result is not perfect but worth the savings.
in 2021 for 4 of us now : Going to start a renovation project for a x2 bigger place and a 460 sq ft open roof terrace.
It is exciting to think of the bigger space that we get to spend , and a bigger renovation cost to rebuild cause it is going to be a full renovation.
so many new gadgets now in the world : smart switch, cassette air con, smart wardrobe even . . wow not to mention all types of kitchen island ( dry kitchen and wet kitchen ) , electric laundry hanger ? , zig tack windows ?
So I am torn in between of whether to go via ID or contractor. I have ideas for the open roof , but by myself I dun think I know how to go about.
Are contractors maybe more functional nowadays compare to 11 years ago? Do contractor know how to construct a loft by self-taught ?
