  2. Hi all, I was fond of looking for interior designs and renovation then came across in this website. Started reading some renovation recommendations and I just want to also share my renovation experience with this ID and they have their own contractor as well. I just want to help those who are looking for ID / contractors to transform their house into a home. My friend recommended them and scheduled for an appointment to discuss our reno. They were very open to our suggestions of what kind of design concept we want and they were also great at suggesting alternative concept to make the designs improve more but with a cheaper budget. They were very good at explaining the details and how they update the schedule of the reno. They were very accommodating and all the small issues were settled. Overall, my house turned to be a relaxing and cozy home! Below are the photos of my house. I’m happy to share their contact with you.

  6. Let care more to our love one at home. Let's get ourselves and our parent equipped with these smart devices at home. Most of us move out of our parent's place when we settle down and form our own families. Our aging parents become more vulnerable to serious injuries from falls or any form of accident at home. These accidental occur at home and have serious consequences. Forgetting to off the gas and resulting in fire, tripping and falling at home is a leading cause of hip fractures, forearm fractures and traumatic brain injuries among seniors. Promoting independent living for seniors and preventing accidents become an important aspect of graceful aging. In the era of Internet of Things (IoT), there is a wide array of non-intrusive smart devices to help alleviate physical and emotional pain from unnecessary accidents, providing ease of mind for children, without invading the privacy of the elderly. Here's some of the recommended devices: Smoke Detector https://h4sh.automate.asia/products/fibaro-smoke-sensor Flood Sensor https://h4sh.automate.asia/products/fibaro-flood-sensor Toilet Sensor https://h4sh.automate.asia/products/toilet-sensor Adaptive Bed Senor https://h4sh.automate.asia/products/adaptive-bed-sensor-with-bluetooth-transmitter Chair Sensor https://h4sh.automate.asia/products/chair-sensor Motion Sensor https://h4sh.automate.asia/products/fibaro-motion-sensor Do contact us for a free and no-obligation smart home consultation.

  9. At Explore living we're always up to the task of pushing the limits in design. Here's a job of ours that we hope you'll like! A classy but yet elegant modern design that was done on an apartment renovation. We've incorporated indirect lighting as a great way of lighting up space without directly beaming onto adjacent surfaces. Cabinet installation with custom-made decorative panels and built-in lighting will surely wow your guests! A master bedroom with hanging side table lamps easily controlled by bedside switches. The padded wall has also been carefully designed and installed into place. We've incorporated built-in storage for a wall mounted cabinet but we've also slotted a custom-made marble compartment for the purpose of displaying items or even using it as a built-in table like in the picture. Underglow lighting helps bring out the amount floorspace to help liven up the room atmosphere. A beautiful miniature fountain that makes the balcony a lot different than others. We've decked out this tiny space to fit both built-in storage and a queen size bed. Maximizing space is not a problem if you don't have much!

  10. has anyone heard of takeONE loans centre in bukit batok? i was referred by my ID as i am looking for a renovation loan. met up with a guy from the takeONE and the interest rate is very attractive at 2.553% p.a. for 5 years for a $40K loan. couples who took renovation loan from banks are aware that the maximum loan we can get is only $30K or 6x of your salary whichever is lower right? so i am very puzzled why he is able to loan me $40K at such attractive interest. their fees & charges(processing, disbursement, late payment, early repayment, cancellation fees are all similar to the banks. he is not willing to reveal more unless i signed with him. anyone has any idea if it is safe to take renovation loan from them? or will it be safer to take from the banks? my spouse is still studying and will be back in a few months' time. by the time he is back he still needs to find a job. that is why we are exploring other options other than the banks as my salary alone will not be able to get hold of the $30K loan.

  12. Hi, we'd recently gotten our keys to 5room resale flat. Didn't want to do any renovation until a year later to save up on reno budget. However, the kitchen cabinets was quite in a bad shape as the flat was left empty for more than 4 months. So was thinking of engaging contractors for the reno works. Type of work required - hacking of whole house - tiling - plumbing - rewiring - carpentry at kitchen
  13. Hi everyone, in need of advice! I'm currently renovating my 30 year old resale flat and have a problem with the skirting done by my contractor. Before the renovation started, I went with his suggestion to have a tile skirting to match my floor (I wanted to go without skirting or have a white skirting but he said better to use the tiles). Now that the skirting is up, I'm unhappy with the outcome - the skirting looks thick, some parts look thicker than the rest and the finishes on top of the skirting are uneven/wavy. When I raised these concerns to my contractor, he said this is the tiler's technique (i.e. the skirting finishes with a slope upwards) and nothing more can be done as our walls are not straight. He said we can hack and redo with a flat finishing but it will be sharp at the edges (??) and he cannot promise it will look better. Basically, NOTHING CAN BE DONE. Can I seek forumners views: Is what my contractor said true - that nothing can be done? Is this kind of workmanship acceptable? See photos attached. Is it possible to hack away my skirting without damaging the floor tiles? At this point, is it possible to hack away and do without skirting OR replace with a skirting board? Thanks all in advance!
  14. Hi Everyone! Any reliable contractor to recommend? I already have my own concept of what i want for my renovation. just need a contractor to get them in place. if possible like to know more about your renovation quotation as well looking forward to your recommendations!!
  15. My wife and I were referred to DC Carpentry by my sister who engaged the renovation film for renovation work. Eventually, we met up with Peter Chan, the manager/designer on 23 Sep 2014 to discuss about the renovation quotation. Our initial impression of Peter Chan was quite pleasant as he managed to guide us through the renovation discussion. We thought we have found the right person to engage for our renovation. However, this was exactly the opposite. About one week after our first discussion (1 Oct 2014), we approached Peter Chan via whatsapp to check if our quotation was ready. He did not reply, neither did he call us back. When my wife tried to call him, he answered the call in a positive tone at the beginning. But once he realized we were asking him for the quotation, he immediately told my wife he was very busy and then hung up the call before we could speak further. After which, we received a whatsapp message from him, asking us not to call him. From then on, there was no more messages from him, even until now. My sister who engaged him for renovation work a month ago, did tried to speak to him several times regarding our quotation follow up. But again, no follow up from Peter Chan, not even a courtesy call or message. It seems like he has no intention to liaise with us at all. Probably he has been very busy but I feel that he could have let us know, or sent someone else to follow up with us if he was really that busy. But instead, he chose to ignore us. There was not even a single message from him at all. Anyway I do not feel that he is really that busy because I saw him sharing some random news feed on the DC Carpentry FB wall that has nothing much to do with his renovation work. I tried to post on the DC Carpentry FB wall more than a week ago, asking them about my quotation follow up, hoping that they will reply. Again, no reply from him of anyone else. Instead, my post was removed by them. When I attempted to post the same enquiry on their wall the 2nd time, my post was removed again and this time, I was BLOCKED from posting on their FB wall. I realized only positive comments are found on their FB wall. The negative ones were removed. And I am not the only one experiencing this issue, which I found it really dishonest and deceiving. Anyway, I am posting this just to share my negative experience with people who might be thinking of engaging DC Carpentry for renovation work. Thankfully that I did not engage them. You might wish to think twice before engaging a renovation film because if the pre-sales service is bad, your renovation could end up as bad.

  20. After hearing so many horror stories i did some home work. then i realise that there is a case trust accrediation for renovation companies. there are only 21 companies on that list!! anyone tried companies from that list and still have bad exp?
  21. I always have a princess dream, so even though I only have a low budget of 23k, I decided to make most out of it. Before Renovation:
  22. hi i have seen afew of my friends home and my own home. on mistakes that renovators have made. really piss people off. i m listing it down on things i encounter and my friends exp. do share you exp also. too many fake ID posers and fake contractor out there with zero exp and knowledge . Really damage the reputation of the contractors or interior designer image. and still dare to call them self professional. LIST of mistakes 1. water basin right below the live power point ( really no brain. so the house gona trip everyday or my friend is gona die one day) 2. drawer edge friction on the gas rubber tube (this is really trying to kill me. really wish my ID have a brain) hope there is a safety course that all designer need to go for. like DO NOT put sharp EDGES NEAR GAS RUBBER TUBE. 3.false ceiling install but forgot to get the wiring done . heard from friend 4. 3D drawing wait for 3 weeks still not done. home renovation almost complete. still not done. tons of excuses 5. any how charge . existing also charge. didn't provide anyhow put something there to charge. example cove light didn't do charge but $900 for it. even charge $150 for each internet point. i even had to point out hdb already provided it. no reason to charge me since you didn't even do it . 6. keep asking me to proceed with loan drag everything when close to date of renovation. know that is in the rush to move in. any how pattern all come out. expecting that i got no choice liao. even threaten me at last me if i don't follow his way my house moving will be delay. he can do what he prefer or like. super irresponsible. i had to change a designer. can't believe how many homeowner he have cheated. who would want their neck be choke by ID while doing renovation. 7.Keep planning will have and should have and didn't bother about what the home owner wants. heard from one of my neighbours. keep saying do study room here do this here. do here there.. homeowner didn't even request for study room. 8. some renovators have very bad mouth. my friend refer me to use your service. you keep saying bad things about my friend to me. really bro? very disappointed with my current house. sad... to my friend that recommend me this .. really curse you bro. in the end i found out he refer just to earn money.
  23. Hi all! i am new in the forum, but have been following for a few months now. Just recently signed up just to share my humble experience in my reno journey. My 4rm BTO flat have been completed. I was lucky to have chanced upon this ID through our friend's recommendation. We fall in love with their proposal concept for our home and they understood clearly on the things we required like being space-savy with the looks of alittle zen/ scandi themed. They are actually a small start up company with her and her few partners with years of experience in this field. They are very knowledgeable on the renovation details and are able to point out concerns before construction and to advise better alternatives for us to choose from. It has been 3 months since the renovation is completed. My ID is still very helpful whenever there are any minor issues. Just sharing this experience as it has been a positive experience with her. Do let me know if anyone here is interested! She is also providing free consultation and advises even if you are not engaging them.
  24. After a wait of several months, I’m finally going to exercise the OTP of my 2-storey inter-terrace this month. I have a small budget of $400-500k. If situation permits, I’m planning to add 1-1.5 storey to maximise the buildup area. URA masterplan indicates max 3 storey for landed housing. Condition of the FH inter-terrace is good (built around 1990s) and seller is staying in it. Land area : 1619 sq ft (150.4 sq m) / Current Build up : approx 2000-2100sq ft I have tried asking my seller’s property agent to obtain a copy of the floor/structural plan for my reference, to confirm the actual build up area but he kept telling me that the seller doesn’t have it and his most recent reply is that “please talk to your architect or builder. They know the process of getting the floor plan. We closed a few cases in Dec...” As such, I will be buying the property with no clue of actual build up area and structural details. With an indicative budget of say $400-500k, is it possible to do a reconstruction to add the 1.5 storey? An architect has roughly quoted $600k+ for the job excluding carpentry. Please kindly advise..... (1) Reconstruction Budget of $400-500k to add another 1000-2000 sq ft. Is it achievable? (2) If not, the next alternative is A&A to expand/extend the bedrooms and redo the kitchen area and car porch thereby adding 500-1000 sq ft, what will the indicative cost be?
  25. I have bought a tap from Hoe Kee at IMM on 8 May for my new house. And it was installed by my contractor after that. On 20 May i found the copper pipe was broken and my whole house was flooded. I went to the store, the staff try to blame the contractor at first. Then they agree to change the pipe only. What kind of service is that? Not even replace the tap. They said they Cannot resell. What the **** is that. They want to refurbish and sell. And they did not even apologize for flooding my house. They just said that was none od their business. Attached are the photos.
