  1. Leaving a quick note here to say that we've spoken to HFH's Nicholas, who offered suggestions about materials and practical advice and design considerations about aspects of our reno. Easy to talk to guy. He just honestly tells it as it is, not pushy at all. Thanks, Nina.
  2. Hi FatRabbit, "met" you for the first time from your reply on my thread. I am so sorry to hear about your bad experience! It's the kind of horror story no one wants in their reno journey. I hope you've managed to pick up the pieces and start enjoying life your new flat. If you could PM me who this contractor is, I would appreciate it. Thank you!
  3. Hi, could you please PM me a quote for new 4-rm BTO: - hack svc yard wall, - hack 2 partition walls of 1 bedroom (it's the hollow drywall type not the cement type of wall) - tiling whole house in wood tiles random staggered (kitchen, svc yard, living/dining, 3 bedrooms but NO toilets) thank you!
  4. Thanks for the input FatRabbit! We were thinking that we should go find a door craftsman ourselves, but was willing to hear the contractor (who specialise in wetworks and carpentry like kitchen and other built-ins) out. The thing is, we are not sure if custom door-making falls under general carpentry (which the contract does) or a specialised skill. But then again, maybe we should go ahead and find the doormakers (is this what they are called?) ourselves to get a rough idea of costs and timeframe. If anyone got a recommendation for this (for french doors, etc) we would love to hear it. Thank you!
  5. Hi all! This question is two-part, directed to those engaging in contractor only for their reno but all are welcome to chime in. The proposed works to be done on our BTO is quite straighforward hacking of walls, tiling, electrical and plumbing (no feature wall or built-in cabinetry) so we are looking for a contractor rather than an ID. However we are planning to have custom made doors installed (timber bi-fold french doors and dutch doors). The contractor guy we spoke to implied that he can figure out how to create any kind of doors but we are a bit unsure about this and would like to seek the opinions of this forum's more experienced people. For those of you who have had your reno done with contractors only and have glass/timber doors done, do you have them (the main contract) do the doors for you or do you liaise separately with another company specifically for the doors? Second part our question is... does anyone have any door people to recommend? Thank you so much for your input and please pardon this double newbie question. I am both reno newbie and forum newbie
  6. Hi there, could you please share with me his contact. Thank you so much!
