  1. Hi everyone! My wife and I would like to shout out a big THANK YOU here to Dave bro and his team for the superb renovation done at our 20 year old 3+1 bedroom condo unit! Like I mentioned earlier, he was the only ID out of the many we met who had showed full confidence in performing the complete overhaul and renovation of the unit and I must say he really pulled it off pretty smoothly without any major hiccups . The whole renovation was completed well within schedule, and on top of that the workmanship is of superb quality (when comparing our reno works with other friends who have recently done reno as well). Another thing I must mention is that he will always consider all our requests and give us sound advice on any renovation enquiry. And even after the renovation works are done, he will still listen to our requests and arrange to have them settled without any hesitation. My wife and I are not the fussy type of people but I think quality and workmanship of the plumbing, tiling, carpentry, etc are all top notch! We thoroughly enjoyed our renovation journey with Dave, and even though i spammed him almost everyday asking questions , he never failed to reply every single one of them lol. Really blessed to have him as our ID and friend (he is actually very nice and entertaining to talk to!) and I will definitely recommend him to all our friends and family!

  7. Hi everyone! Have learnt alot from this forum and decided I should share my renovation project too so that people can learn something out of this t-blog post! Many thanks to all the forumners here who have posted and shared their experiences and knowledge! Anyway my wife and I recently acquired a 20 old condo unit at Hillview Heights. It is a top floor corner unit and pretty spacious (i think its somewhere around 125-130 sqm from the floor plan below). The location is actually pretty good because the new hillview station is just beside the condo and diagonal from us is the shopping centre HillV2. Oh and there will be a community centre right across the road from the condo too!! http://renotalk.com/forum/uploads/tn_gallery_72160_953_43032.gif Okay back to the renovation talk. The unit hasnt been well maintained and the conditions and furnishings are all seriously worn and unusable, so no choice we have to do a complete overhaul of the whole house. Yes, everything has to be hacked away!! Therefore wifey and I felt that we really need a very experienced "old bird" to be able to handle this Project-Complete-Overhaul and so the hunt for the IDs began. Since October we have been seeing many IDs and I meant many! Although we already have the keys to the unit, but wifey and i both have our own rooms in both my parents' and inlaws' so there really isnt any rush to complete the renovation. Moreover we prefer to walk the slow-and-swee-swee route rather than rush-and-poor-job-done path. The list below are just some of the companies we have met with: - Liv** ***thesis - Rh*** **terior - Trin*** ID** - Tre**diz - A***ier ***cept - 3* ****vation - De***** Int***** - T** ***erior *ab - P**je** G*** - T** ***erior **ace - In*** **sign - Id*** **use - S** **eati** Like most new homeowners we learnt alot from the IDs when they explained all the works, materials and design and we were really grateful to them. Some IDs we were very impressed with and unfortunately there are some that we are totally put off by. We had an intial budget of around 60k but after all the assessments done by the IDs onsite as well as the from the heap of quotations received, we realise that will not be possible since the whole house really need to hack down and re-do. So after some careful planning and calculation, we raised our budget to somewhere around 90K (not counting furnitures/appliances etc...) #gonnabesobrokein2016 After almost 3 months of meet ups and discussions with so many varieties of IDs, we have decided to engage In*** **sign because the boss himself will be the handling our reno project and wifey and i think he has the most experience of the lot. Not only that, he also rendered 3D drawings for the whole unit to show us without paying a single cent of deposit. That really put the icing on the cake and wifey and I decided to sign with them. Stay tuned for more updates and feel free to comment on anything!
  8. Happy new year everyone~! Seems like there isnt much reviews on Intradesign for the whole of 2015?? Anyway my wife and I have just signed with Intradesign because we felt that Dave is probably the most capable person to handle our complete-overhaul-reno-project (19 year old condo unit ) as compared to the many many other IDs (really many lol..) that we have met for the past couple of months. Price wise seems like it is on the high side, but not significantly higher than the many quotations that we have received from other IDs. We are placing our faith in Dave and fingers crossed that our foresight is correct heh.. We will continue to update our progress here so that fellow keen new homeowners can get some heads up!
