  1. Thanks for the compliments. Wanted to send u the ID details, but you can't receive PM though unfortunately. Its Dorothy, In Lookz home. HP: 94507007.
  2. Hello, what does the weekly house cleaning include? I need helper to wash the toilets and clean kitchen only.
  3. Washer pedestal was scrapped. Its not rigid enough during spin cycle it will walk. Ive upgraded the broom closet by adding left over piece of acrylic behind it to prevent items brooms dirtying my wall when slid out. It works great. These 2 pics were just taken. One of the most useful stuff.
  4. 2 years after... complete the last piece which is my daughters room. This is my largest DIY...Took too long time to complete. Like 4 months haha... Built her a double deck play house bed. It actually isnt complete(roof is missing shingles). I think I'll leave it as is. As the upper deck is the bed and could be stuffy. View from outside Front view. Under the stairs, with USB hub too.. Other views
  5. You can try to use third party buyers with US postal addresses. Like Vpost and ezbuy. Kraus sink depending on type can get from Singapore amazon prime now. I just bought one. Free shipping too.
  6. I like ur dining area. Very elegant. how much did the Reno cost you?
  7. I have the same problem as well, although ur fly count is 10 times more than mine . Mines a Hitachi mini French door fridge. Its a sealing issue. Don't just let the door close by itself, apply a bit of pressure more to seal it. That helps in my case.
  8. Yeah, I had exactly similar tile concept for my bathroom using the 2 tiles that you have pictured. Couldn't find the lower tile locally and it costs too much from amazon. So only framed with the upper tile that u pictured. Not as nice. If I've only known about this store earlier.
  9. nice, always a fan of farmhouse kitchen. Are u going to carpentry up the hood? the stove backsplash: to really make it look nice, you need to "frame" it. You managed to find the framing tiles?
  10. Not ugly but maybe too common. Yes I agree an open shelf would look better. But you need to have same size/color plates, bowls and glasses (theme) to "automatically decorate" it. I didn't do a dish rack as I don't think the front swivel mechanism of the frosted panel can survive past 5 years if you use it daily. That will be the most abused panel of all the cabinetry in the kitchen.
  11. $45 for the crate and barrel... Can just DIY go chop some branches or something FOC if not get caught.
  12. If you like to cook, you will appreciate it being big. Mine have to hang on wall
  13. Laminate maybe? I suppose you were refering to the areas above the bottles. There have lights coming off from inside it so it's likely carpentry work finish with laminate. formica has marble looking ones.
  14. Depending on where the heater(storage or gas) is located. You may waste a bit of water that is seating in the pipes while waiting for the heated water to arrive. Mine is located at the service yard so it's quite a distance, I just use the initial running cold water to wash the toilet bowl and walls. Was an instant heater user for over 30 years. Once I switched to storage, It's no going back for me.
  15. It's not for display. It's for drying. Once dry they go into cabinets. My kitchen is only as big as a Mini Cooper and have no space to dry my cookware after washing. I used to hang my woks and ladles on the clothes rail to dry. Must have been an amusing site for my neighbors. I have 3 bins which are covered ( I think I posted them earlier in my Amazon loot) . 1 is in the living room , 1 in the bathroom and 1 in the kitchen. If you were refering to the HDB supplied trash bin, it's outside the house in new hdbs. Dust is a real concern though. I'm going minimize it with a roller blind or curtains Hah. Kinda unorthodox. Don't like glass Windows.
  16. Amazon. Kinda difficult to find in Sg if u only just want to get a piece. The local distributors ignoring me.
  17. From Amazon. Triton products. I got the plastic version as I use it for mainly to dry wet kitchenware.
  18. On the other side of the service yard. Mounted up a pegboard wall so I can hang cookware after wash. why a pegboard wall and not a cabinet? It's unused wall space that has too little depth for a cabinet due to the clothesline.
  19. Any sheet metal fabricator can do it if u pass them drawings. Its not cheap since it is one off. the 2mm thick sheet metal enclosure itself inclusive of white powder coating and flush mount screw inserts costs $190. plus some hardware (slider rails, hinges, feet) maybe another $30 bucks. So total about $220.
  20. With that, I completed the right side (cleaning equipment side) of the service yard. The earlier washer pedestal was removed as it weren't stable enough and I also wanted to use the area on top of the washer for ironing. Here's a peek. Very basic. I will likely be adding another custom enclosure on the right( hole where the pink scoot is) for storing cleaning rags and chemicals. Left side is the pantry which I'm working on now. It will be pegboard and some Ikea hack kallax and butcher block countertop(if cheap)
  21. Broom storage completed. Though with s slight screw up. Overlooked the protruding Ikea algot rail so can't fully push in the enclosure against the wall. It was initially designed to be flush with the algot shelve and hang on the algot bracket. Anyways... This still works. There is still space for 2 more broomsticks but the joomoo holder can only take 3 rods. So I'll be shopping around for a 5 rod version. 1 thing I did not anticipate. That is the wall may get dirty over time as the bristles do rub against the wall when slid out.
  22. The aircon/fan remotes have holders. The holders are drilled on the wall since I don't think I ever need to move it. Then just slot the remote into the holder. if your remote does not have a holder. Find something that the remote can slide in snugly and 3M command picture tape the holder to the wall. Just need to make sure that the position is still within the sensing range(line of sight in my case). Velcro is an easy alternative though less lasting. They peel off and fur-ball up with use.
