Hi guys!! I've been stalking renotalk for over 4 years omg! Decided to start a t-blog to share my experiences so far My husband and I balloted for our Punggolian home like 4 years ago! And we've finally gotten our key collection date! We'll be collecting our keys on 15th June after a freaking long wait! Am glad to see some fellow Punggolians threads here too! Hello future neighbours! *waves* Actually last week, I wrote a post on my blog about things to prepare when searching for an Interior Designer! Basically the main gist was, we learnt the hard way about going in blind. It is best to have kinda of an idea of what you want. And after a couple of meetings, we finally decided on what we wanted. Woohoo! This is our floorplan! #nadskaihome is a 4 room Premium BTO. Unfortunately for us, our kitchen is tiny! Even if we decide to hack that tiny little wall there, it isn't going to help much! Honestly, when we compare our floorplan to others, I find that we have very little unusable space. Oh well, we'll just have to make the best of what we have! For some reason, our project is extremely green! It's like our contractor Sun Huan is OBSESSED with green. The outside is green. The lifts are green. There are many ugly mosaics in the house. many ugly green bits to be covered. Will be taking pics when we collect our keys and will share pics of the royal greenness. More updates coming soon!
Hi everyone out there! Just wondering if anyone is willing to share their experience if they had renovated their house based on the 'Scandustrial' (Scandinavian/Industrial) theme. Also if you had used an ID, how did it go in that aspect as well? Hopefully everyone gets to exchange tips on where to get all those beautiful lights and furniture according to these themes as well! Cheers P/s I hope someone got the pun hehe.
The Search [https://jumbobnb.wordpress.com/2015/01/20/jumbo-bnb-2/] Welcome to our Blog which records our journey which started from the search of a HDB Resale Unit to finally the purchase and renovation of our Jumbo BnB! Our initial 3 main search criterias were: 1. LOCATION – Close proximity to MRT as we do not own a car and are too lazy to walk long distance. We are willing to pay a premium for location as we see it as savings from not buying/maintaining a car. 2. HIGH FLOOR – Great view, more windy, less insects, less noise from playground and void deck activities. If you get the top floor, you have the added advantage of not having to deal with waste pipes! In all honesty, for greater privacy, 5th floor is the lowest recommended before pedestrians can peer into your house from the ground level. Another consideration is that low floor units are too close to the base rubbish bin in the chute thus every time you open the chute, it is like you are under a chemical attack. 3. Non-Corridor Unit - For greater privacy. Our other concern is that we might get evicted by our neighbours as we are noisy… ok very noisy, not us actually but our Home Theater System and propensity to watch action movies… Using the above 3 search criteria, we spent 3 months scouring the TPY & Bishan areas. The prime candidate was the Blk 79 A-E series near TPY MRT. However the COV and valuations were crazily high. But we must admit the view from those above 30th floor was crazily good! To cut a long story short, we settled for a 5-room unit near Braddell MRT. It only fulfills one of the above 3 criterias (i.e. location); it is a low floor and corridor unit. However it has one unique feature – it is made up of 2 adjoining 3-room units (total 6 rooms if you count the 2 added utility rooms) – which makes it very exciting to do up! =) Being travel bugs, we love hostels and this unit offers us the chance to do up our house like a hostel… hahhaha it wld be like living eternally in a travel hostel. We made an offer to a very nice lady and her mum on the 2nd day and ta da – the Reno Journey begins! PS You cant actually rent your HDB out as a BnB as it is against the regulations and you might lose your unit. Read http://news.asiaone.com/news/singapore/two-lose-hdb-flats-renting-them-tourists
