Hello all, after stalking this forum for a good six months. it's finally my turn to share how I am turning my inspiration to fruition. First up, floor plan. This is a 33 yo, 76 sqm flat located behind River Valley road. OTP the same day I saw it, because it checked all my requirements (corner, second highest). It was also the only unit that my dad had the least complaints about. (He's in the construction line, so he has a keen eye on quality and workmanship, but he didn't want to be the "project director" of my place, lest we have a dramatic fallout...lol) There was another interested party, so I quickly passed the cheque to the agent. *fastest fingers!* I purchased this under the SSC scheme, and had only considered units in Queenstown and Bukit Merah. Having lived in Queenstown for the past 2 decades, I can't see myself moving to other towns. My new place is only a 5 min bus-ride from my parents' place, it's also part of my regular running route. And a 3 bus stop ride to Orchard (or 15 min walk, I tried) As you can see from the floor plan, this is the older generation of HDB where there is only 1 bath and 1 toilet. It's a tight space, which means quite a bit of limitation. I decided to combine both bath and toilet, since I'd be staying alone most of the time. The opening to the WC from the kitchen remains, while another opening is created from my bedroom directly to the bathroom. The bathroom door at the kitchen would be sealed up. The good thing about old units is that it's fully livable (no household shelter, no aircon ledge, and of cos, no extra bathroom). But it helped that this unit went through MUP in the late 90s and the space adding item (utility room) was added. So that's the one place I'm not touching. This will also be my laundry/ storage area. In terms of inspiration, I'm looking at clean lines, scandi-industrial mix. Functionality is important too, so I'm not doing fancy features like craft bricks, cove lights or false ceilings (The flat has extremely low ceiling).
