  1. eLo all bro and sis... after camping in renotalk for so long. v fortunately I am able to start my reno journey and share w u guys. I will keep it short and simple... picture speak a 1000 words below is the floor plan... regards laks
  2. I have been a follower of this wonderful forum for a long time, a quick check on my profile shows that I am a member since 2004! That was when I am renovating the current place that I am staying. Time flies and it has been 10 years, and it’s time for a mid-life upgrade. There are several challenges, thus I named the blog “Hopefully” as I am not sure if I will succeed. I will be hiring a contractor, thus I will be the “designer”. Challenges: Budget. After long discussion with CFO, the budget was set at $20k. With an upgrade to a system 4 air-con a cardinal requirement, effective balance is only 16k. Coordination. As we will be staying in for the renovation, extra effort will be required for the coordination to minimize disruption and stress to the residents (wife, 3 schooling kids, helper) Theme. After browsing through the tons of information in the t-blogs, I must say that I like the “Scandinavian” look. The challenge for me is how I can achieve this without making major changes to existing infra and within budget.Scope of Work L-Box & Plastering for 3 bedrooms Vanishing of Parquet for 3 Bedrooms Glass Partition to create new study room Laminate floor for Study Sliding door for Balcony Lay wood decking for Balcony (6m x 1.5m) Brick tile for TV wall Shoe Cabinet Cabinet for Master Toilet New System 4 Aircon Retrofit Oven and additional Kitchen Cabinets New WardrobeThe following is my floor plan just to get the ball rolling. It’s a 5A unit @ 136sqm. I had made some changes to the layout during the last reno by hacking away half the store room to create a new entrance to the kitchen.
  3. Finally! After few months of viewing, researching, negotiating and WAITING, we did our 1st appointment on Friday (24/10). We prefer 4-rooms than 3-rooms, but we have limited budget. And we think it's taking too long for us to wait for the BTO. So, we can only buy resale and not those nearer to MRT station. Luckily, the current market is so-called "Buyer Market" and there is no COV needed. It's a 30+ year old HDB. Located at highest floor and next to corner unit. We love it from the 1st sight. LOL. Now, it's time for me to do more homeworks on how should I reno my future home with limited budget. After gathering some information and ideas from 2 of my friends that are currently staying in the same size and layout 4S, we decided to do it as per below. Living Room The current floor is so old school. We know we can save a few K if we keep it, but we just can't take it. So the floor has to go and change it to homogenous tile.Shoe cabinet + storage behind the main door. The store room is already hacked (we are not intended to keep it anyway), so we will need more storage to keep those bulky stuffHacking the kitchen entrance and push it in (around 3 ft). Will be installing a 4-pcs temper glass sliding door. The living room will be seems bigger and that area for will be our new dining area. No false ceiling will be done as we are trying to save the money for more storage.Master Bedroom Flooring will be overlaid to save cost.Built-in wardrobe (around 6 ft)Bedroom 2 Flooring will be overlaidHacking the wall between the room and bathroom to make an entrance. I will have another master bedroom. LOLBedroom 3 Flooring will be overlaidNothing much will be done as this will be my study room/entertainment roomMaster Toilet​ Wall and floor tiles will be removed and replace with new tilesL-shape shower screen will be installedMain Toilet Wall and floor tiles will be removed and replace with new tilesKitchen Wall and floor tiles will be removed and replace with new tilesThe cabinet will be installed for both sides of the kitchen. Both friends are recommending to make more storage and we foresee we will have a lot of stuff too. The only concern that we have now is, not sure the kitchen will look cramp with both sides of full height cabinet installed.Gas pipe will be installed as it's currently using the gas tank. Don't want to waste the place to keep the gas tank.Wiring All wiring will need to replacePlumbing Same as wiring, all plumbing have to be replaced
