(crossposted) I'm thinking of buying an old 3I resale where the HIP was completed last year but dunno how to combine the bathrooms. Haven't hired contractor since haven't offered. The layout is pretty idiotic where the big pipe is between the wc and the shower (in pink). There is less than one foot btw the end of the pipe and the wall so I don't think I can cut an opening to combine the two. Think It's like that cos top flr. 1. Has anyone found a workaround? I considered moving bathroom wall out to create a connecting space but given location of window this means bathroom will be weird shaped / protrude into kitchen 2. HIP completed last year. Is it true that bathroom tiles cannot be hacked 3 years after HIP? Or is that only for BTO? Any info appreciated! I tried looking online but can't find one with this problem. Don't dare to make offer until I find out... Btw I'm perfectly fine with hving one big bathroom cos staying alone Thx!
Buying a resale 3i hdb flat and looking for proven solution on the net. As you all may already know, 3i hdb flat comes with two separate cubicles, 1 wc, 1 bathroom. which is only 1.68m in length, with the bathroom slightly wider than the wc cubicle by 1.5m Vs 1m. Most likely, I will be renting out the common room of the 3i flat. What i'm thinking is to seal up the bathroom door, and hack the wall connecting to the masterbedroom. Means now, the "attached" bathroom is only for bathing and a sink. Next,is to install a shower in the wc cubicle, which i know is pretty cramp. So that tenant(s) can use the 'common' toilet for their showering. My biggest concern is this. This maybe a show stopper for me to rent out, as tenants may feel the wc cubicle is now for 'wc' AND showering. Since HDB does not allow a second wc to be installed in the 'attached' bathroom, guess i have to make do with sharing the 'throne' with tenants. Does anyone has a better solution for this 3i bathroom? Or what's your take on this 3i wc/toilet issue?
