  1. Hi namja, can you PM me the contact of the contractor as below pls? suppose you have stayed in your house for a while now alr...how is the workmanship..any issue so far? the contractors have a company based here?


    Hi Namja,

    Carpenters usually quote by PFR (per foot run). Several factors contribute to the PFR pricing:

    - height

    - whether you have sliding doors

    - doors with glass

    - etc.

    For HDB , the full height is usually about 2.6meters. Therefore the cost for a full height wardrobe that spans 6 feet width would be calculated as such:

    6 x $300 pfr (not psf as mentioned by benetay) = $1,800

    The market rate really differs between IDs (Interior Designers) to sub-contractors (eg. carpentry workshops). ID firms generally perform a higher mark-up as they engage sub-contractors to construct the wood-work items.

    I went direct to a carpentry workshop to get mine done previously and I believe I enjoyed cost savings of at least 20-30%.

    Hope this helps.
