Blog Entry Date: 9th May 2017 Tuesday An Introduction. First of all, thank you very much for taking the time to check out my humble little blog, and i'd like to take this opportunity to share my renovation journey with you. I hope the information I put here may be useful to anyone (especially fellow 2 roomers) who is also starting on their renovation soon! As of the time of writing, I have not yet gotten my keys and according to HDB it'll be around Q3 2017. As time goes by, I will post whenever possible right from Concept 3D Design to ID selection up to Completion of Renovation. Hopefully, everything goes smoothly. This is also my first time writing a blog so please be gentle with me! Please note: I've also made a backup of this blog on Wordpress incase this post is taken down by Renotalk for any reason in the future. Other than a few slight formatting changes, the contents will be identical. (This is also a preferred link if you prefer reading the blog from beginning to end with no interruptions.) The Website is: https://hdb2roomrenovation.wordpress.com/ -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= How to Use this Blog: I HIGHLY RECOMMEND to use the Table of Contents to navigate because it shows the correct sequence of events, without needing to go thru pages of comments to look for each Blog Entry. It is also easier for folks who want to instantly jump to which section they are more interested in. Whenever you need to jump back to the Table of Contents, simply click on this link: Click Here to go back to Page 1 - Table of Contents to instantly jump back to Page 1 of this Blog. This link will be available at the Top and Bottom of every Blog Entry that I add. Additional Addendum: I have now added direct links to the next blog entry at the end of every post. They look like this: (Click Here for the Next Blog Entry:) Found it abit silly and unfair to request for readers to always go back to Table of Contents just to go to the next entry. So sorry for the inconvenience, this blog should hopefully be less confusing and flow more smoothly. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Table of Contents: 01) HDB Floorplan and My 3D Design made with Planner 5D 02) The Search for an Interior Designer for my Project begins... 03) Tile Selection at Soon Bee Huat 04) Selection of Laminates 05) An RC Event I attended which showed for the first time how my apartment would look like! 06) My First Obstacle...one of my ID left without informing me!

I had sign up with A&D for my 5rm resale flat renovation and my ID is Elijah Yeo Renovation completed for almost 1 month and I'm very satisfied with the work done, some minor rectification that need to be done are done. Elijah was punctual for all our meetings. He kept his promises and knowing that we had to get the renovation done quickly, he went all out to help us achieve this. We were away for a week and he made sure that work was done properly while we were away. He's very easy to work with and helpful - he volunteered to wait for the delivery of our equipment eventhough it's not his job. When we texted him at 10 plus at night on a weekend, he even called us back to give us feedback. Afterall, the job was done so smoothly and without any fuss.
