Hi all! I have been a silent reader for the longest time and have gathered many ideas from the various T-blogs for my renovation. We have received the keys to our place in October and hope to share our humble renovation journey with all of you. Like the title suggests, the theme for our place slants towards minimal scandi. We wanted a cosy place to call our own and felt that the scandinavian theme best resonates with us. First up! Our floor plan...
Hi guys, Decided to start a tblog! My hubby and I are awaiting to collect our keys (5 room BTO) in April 2014, and currently have gone out and about looking for suitable furniture, appliances, home fittings etc. We've confirmed our ID and paid the deposit... looking forward to seeing the 3D drawings materialise bit by bit in the next week. A bit of a background:- Hubby and I started looking out for a suitable ID in Nov 2013... and we took about 5 months (and many meetings with different IDs) before we had a clear idea of what we want and who we feel comfortable engaging to work on our house. We understand that perhaps hiring a contractor and doing things the 'ala-carte' way for our house may be more cost-efficient... but since this is our first home and we had no clue as to what we wanted, we were happy to splurge a little more to have someone (the ID) do more thinking and planning for us. Hope the ID we chose will be able to fulfil what we envision... anyway, we will be sure to give the praises and reference should the firm deserve it, but will also not hesitate to name and shame if the end result is not what we want. Of course, hopefully all goes well *crosses fingers* It's still early days.... At the end of the day, we chose this ID because we felt comfortable with his pricing and also because the communication has been pretty open with this ID - doesn't seem like he has anything to hide. One more personal preference was that this ID we engaged is the managing director of the firm, who can exercise a lot more influence and decision should anything comes up out of the ordinary. We both felt that's pretty important... rather than choosing someone who always tells us 'sorry but i need to check with my boss etc' Perhaps i will dedicate another post next to talk about the whole process of ID-hunting... heh. So far, hubby and I have bought:- - aircon (Mitsubishi Starmex Inverter sys 4) - storage bedframe (Englander) - mattress (King-sized Simmons) More furniture and furnishings to come soon... but i suppose these will take place when we finally collect our keys next month. That's all for now! till the next update... Cheers, Mrs Lee
