Hello everyone! We are starting this t blog 1.5 months into our reno to chronicle the ups and downs of our reno journey and to share our experience after gaining so much from renotalk. Let me begin with a brief introduction to what has happened in the past few months. We collected our keys at the beginning of july and quickly went through a few rounds of meeting IDers and looking through quotations and finally we confirmed our contractor as we felt comfortable with him and liked the projects he has done. Works commenced on 26th September and is still on going now. So let me share our floor plan! which is not too exciting as its a very standard 4 room bto hee.
Being a silent reader (on and off) since 2011, when we first applied for our BTO, I guess it's time for me to make some worthy (I hope) contributions to this community! Having heard of how difficult it was for couples to apply for a BTO flat, we are indeed thankful to be able to secure a mid-level unit on our first try, given that our queue number has exceeded the total no. of units! Well, maybe I should thank those people who applied, but given up their chance. Fast forward to 4 years later in 2015, we finally collected the keys to our first nest in Jan' 2015. We didn't carry out rituals like rolling pineapple, sprinkling of salt in 4 corners or screaming "Huat ah, Huat ah" etc.. Instead, we were snapping away! Having seen my sister's BTO flat, I wasn't expecting much, but it came as a pleasant surprise that it's slightly bigger than what I expected! Hehe! Starting off with a mandatory picture, the Floor plan! In my opinion, it's a rather standard one in these days BTO. Upon entering, this is the view that greeted us.. Living Room. It's pretty Long-ish & square-rish. Up next is the Corridor, leading up to the bedrooms & bomb shelter (double up as storeroom). Okay, that's another standard thing. Realized that I do not have any pictures of the rooms. Actually all of these pictures are taken by the husband, and he said something like, there isn't a need to take as all the rooms looks the same! Hahah! We forgotten about the kitchen too! But I managed to find a saved pic of the kitchen in my gallery. I think it was my neighbour's, which I chanced upon in my project's facebook group. So, the credit of this picture is to him/ her! Being someone who enjoys cooking & baking, this kitchen came as a big disappointment! It's so tiny!! I think this would be a nightmare to people coming from my mums generation, their kitchen is easily 3x of this size? After looking around, we proceed to spend the next hour or so checking defects, but we were quite tired out by the bending up and down in such a warm weather.. All we wanted was a chilling can of drink! So we decided to call it a day, we shall come back another day to continue with the defect checking! Hiak Hiak Hiak!
Dear all, I am looking to renovate my 4 room bto, and went to approach My Design Pte Ltd.. We discussed for about 2 hours the concept and things we were looking in our home and he quoted us about $33k plus a $1500 design drawing fee which could be offset if we signed the contract. I haven't been able to find any threads or reviews on them. Does anyone know anything or have any reviews on them?? Btw, we paid the $1.5k for the design plans already!
Hi all, been a silent reader for the past 1 year and ve really learnt a lot from the RT members here in T-Blog, those precious experiences, ideas and tips which help us a lot through our reno journey. Its really wonderful to see how a place to turn from nothing to a home after concept, reno process, furnitures and decor. Hence we decided to start our T-Blog (we got our keys on 1st Oct) and as usual 1st thing - our foor plan http://renotalk.com/forum/uploads/gallery_48023_3_57614.jpg
