  5. Wow like this the storeroom is big like a maid's room But still prefer the current open space Can put sofa and cabinet plus a standing fan Relax area
  6. So you suggest restoring back to the original layout? Actually was deciding whether want to remove the storeroom if found such a layout Since it was removed actually no need to think already For the storage space, thought of it 1. The sideboard in the living room in front of the master bedroom 2. The empty space looking from the kitchen entrance diagonally oppspite 3. Inside the kitchen cabinets 4. Will have a cupboard at the original storeroom area
  7. Hi, bought a 5rm resale hdb this year This is the original floor plan But when I bought it, the store room was already removed Started sourcing for IDs and contractors and met up with almost 10 of them While comparing the quotes and thinking whether can they can "click" with me and understand my ideas I am also looking for those reliable companies that won't run away with my money since there are few cases this year After almost 2 months before got the key, finally decided on this guy, Benjamin from D*****4****E He is not those whom you signed the contract with, that will go strictly with it I have made a lot of changes and he's very understanding and since things which are not yet done, he allowed to make changes I told him I wanted an area for guests without disturbing my family and he proposed a few ideas Since my kitchen is quite big, so he suggested these After thinking over the pros and cons, finally decided on the last one Stay tuned for the reno progress...
  8. Have you bought this model? Or any one does? Is this using battery ignition and able to use City Gas?

  13. Hi, found a resale flat. The access balcony was bought and the gate and main door is shifted to the new position (yellow). Can half of the length of the wall (red crosses) be hacked and the whole balcony be levelled with the kitchen? Site survey shows there are overhead beams as shown in grey (Showing only the areas of interests) Standing in front of the wall with the red crosses Thanks.
  14. How is the leveling of balcony floor to living room/dining areas progress? Approved?
  15. In a dilemma here. Unit A is available and I have paid the initial sum ($1~$1k). I have 21 days to consider. I understand that the sum I paid cannot be refunded once the seller accepted it but I still can back out. The floor is the highest with 3 more bedrooms upstairs. Basically the stairs end outside unit B, so there won't be anyone coming down. Ok, let me compile all the points that I disliked about unit A against B. 1. Main door, living room and the room upstairs can be seen from the corridor. 2. Unit B family will walk past unit A. 3. Unit A living room will get the East morning sun, while unit B living room is the NS facing. 4. Area (maybe and the staircase) infront of unit B "belongs" to unit B. Are these points enough for would be buyer to totally give up unit A? The good points about unit A and B are (to me) top floor, corner and normally, the 1st floor room is just after the main door, but this is a rare layout where the room is at the furthest end diagonally from the main door. I find it a pity to let go since it's really hard to find a corner, top floor EM with such layout. But if I get it, I will have a 2nd class feeling to unit B since that unit is a corner corner unit whereas my living room and the room above the living room can be seen from the corridor. And also I don't like knowing I am paying a price that is 3 or 4 times higher than what unit B paid for if they are the 1st owner. Really is in a dilemma here. What do you all think?
