  1. I hope this information will be useful to all homeowners who wish to save cost on home renovation works. Just as any other couples, we approached a few interior designers to build our dream home. To be frank, we were quite disappointed with their proposed ideas and design. Im proud to say we were the designers for our own home but of course with the help and advice from our contractor. Since we had to keep within our budget (arrival of our baby around the same time), we decided to do the renovation with a contractor after hearing from friends that it is possible to have a wow home makeover and save significant savings too. Information on renovation ideas are also readily available online. We were very much involved during the whole process. We invested our time on phone calls and checks to ensure evrything goes as plan such as the correct colours, design and layout as discussed with our contractors. Here are some of our house's photos in progress and the outcome. Im unable to upload all the completed photos due to size. All the best in planning your dream home!

  4. Hi all, I bought a 5-room resale flat at Sembawang. I want to share my experience on house renovation and I hope my sharing helpful for you. Few months before my renovation, I went to a few ID but most of the time they either respond slowly or very hard push. The quotation could be varied from one to another. When the time I feel quite lost, I am glad that I happen to know this reliable and responsible contractor from a hardware shop. To my surprise, the quotation is reasonable but most importantly is the great workmanship. My husband and I decided to engage this contractor because of his :- 1) Prompt reply and responsible. I remember the first time I texted him he replied me very fast. 2) Friendly attitude. At first, I told him that I have another carpentry contractor and he is willing to coordinate with him. I feel secured and comfortable to talk to him. At the end, we found is easier to let him do everything since the price he quote for carpentry work is similar to the contractor that I plan to engaged before. 3) Reasonable price
  5. Hi Everyone, I bought a 4-Room Resale flat near Serangoon Nex. The entire renovation journey has been very tiring as there are a lot of planning to be done, running around like a mad dog looking for ideas, stuffs to buy , etc. In addition, I am quite of a perfectionist which most IDs and Contractors will probably run away upon hearing my requests and complaints. =P Hence, that is the reason why I will like to recommend my contractor as not only had he been very patient but the chemistry to work together is there. To top it off, they provide quality workmanship and very good quotes. (I ran around and did some comparisons with other ID Firms which I decided to end up with a contractor instead.) Details as follows: Contractor In-Charge of My Project: Nicholas Company: HFH Design & Build (There are already alot of good review about this renovation company if you search around.) Lighting: If you want to look for unique lighting and designer fans, you can probably pay a visit down to L-Win Gallery located at Balestier. The boss name is Richard and he will provide you some good ideas on how to brighten up your house. As you can see from the pictures below, my LED light comes with 3 different kinds of shade which can be changed via flicking of normal switch. His shop has some good pieces and range to choose from. Details as follows: Picture of my flat after renovation. Hope you all like my post~!
  6. My house was done by a direct contractor.i was so lucky,found him at the void deck below my new flat in Tampines. His prices are very affordable and provide all services that i required him to do without additional charges.He is actually a contractor doing reno works for ID companies thats why his price is so good.He even got me 3D rendering works at direct prices too. I'm recommending him becos its hard to find trustworthy contractors/ID's nowadays.Most of my friends got their own contractors too but all with ****ty experience. u can try to whatsapp him at 87811662.
  7. I know that the HDB guidelines state that you can only extend the bathroom by 600mm or 0.6msq, and only used as dry area. Later on, I saw a couple of floor plans that actually extended the boundary of the bathroom more than 600mm out. One person actually commented that "the HDB guideline technically means: 600mm is the distance of your wash basin's pipehole to the original bathroom boundary". Meaning to say, as long as the piping of the wash basin is within 600mm distance of the original bathroom boundary, you can build the new walls however big as you want. Can anybody confirm this? Attaching my floor plan for reference

  11. Hi All My reno journey started about 3 months back when i sold my BTO and found a resale unit .. Life wasnt that simple as I had approx 5 weeks in between to shift The unit i bought was Cheap but badly maintained. I had a ridiculously low budget I was doing this reno solo as my hubby was out of town I researched countless IDs and contractors who told me that it was Impossible to do whatever i wanted ( Hacking , Tiling , Complete Kitchen and Bathroom reno , False Ceiling , Built in Carpentry , Replacement of Room Doors , Window and Grille replacements , Electrical and Plumbing works ) within 5 weeks. The shortest time line i had was 7 weeks and the bill was $48000 ( which was the average amongst most contractors) On a very late night in late August i happen to read to reno forum and got a contact of Mr Seah. I tried my luck and he said he wanted to see my lowest quote and he will try my best to help me. We met at about 9pm at the unit as i was delayed after work . He saw my lowest quote and through to his word offered me a much lower price. We signed the deal immediately as i had no time to waste if i need to move in by the 1st week of October. Needless to say i was a little worried and sceptical coz of the deal i got -- i was afraid i would be short changed or the quality would not be up to my expectation but Mr Seah never failed me. i went to several of his units just to be more reassured. Plus the fact that he owned his own carpentry factory was a plus point as he could offer direct carpentry prices. Right from choosing the tiles , to laminate colors and fabrics we worked together day and ( mostly nights due to my work schedule). He put in a 100% percent and hand to push me when i was too tired to make selections. He even gave me advise whenever i made wrong selections. After exactly 5 weeks and 2 days he handed over the house to me and i have no complains to date ( There is a reason i waited a lil longer to put up this post just in case his workmanship needed touch ups - but it is all good ) Renovating a home is definitely not an easy feat but if it definitely helpful to share if we have come across good contacts A little goes a long way **Pictures to be updated soon**
  12. Hi, I found some of the interesting materials when I was doing my research. Cork flooring is one of them. This material is made of CORK, and it is in a plank like vinyl flooring. But Vinyl flooring is made of PVC which is not so environmentally friendly. You guys can have a look. It seems like a pretty cool alternative flooring material for us. It has green and sustainable certification and it is low in formaldehyde. ou gu
  13. Hi, I come across this ID, anyone engaged the service? Any feedback? Thanks.
  14. Hi all, I am new to this forums but has been browsing here since i was looking for a ID/Contractor to renovate my resale flat. We all understand the agony of finding a good responsive & responsible renovation contractor. I just want to share some of my experience renovating my kitchen which includes hacking + re-tiling works from this ID. To be frank, we are all afraid of cutting chopped due to us doing very little reno as compared to others doing their whole flat so we thought the cost might be slightly more pricey. Then we came upon this ID we saw on this forums posted with their promo package, we decided to give them a call. We talked and set an appointment the next day to share our ideas/concepts of our home. Like most of the people would say, most of the ID is only keen on making more money but instead he would actually explained specifically some of the more complicated design of how it will be constructed that might be costly. He would then suggest alternatively another similar concept but at a cheaper budget. We thought, “That was great!” We told them that we don’t really need any fancy design and proposed if they could come out with one based on our needs and budget. At the same time, we also choose our laminate and material in their office (which happen to be nearby our place also). With many variety to choose from, he will also offer different suggestion of which material will benefit and which is more of within our budget range. As much as we are concerned, it was really a pleasant meeting with him as he accommodate us without trying to upsell anything. However, end of the day, in fact we still thinks quotation is the last key factor if it is a scam or not. After a few days, to our surprised, it was actually within our budget and during our second meetup, he would explained in details of how each is being charged accordingly. We decided to go with them and proceed with the renovation work. Overall, he also provided us with a free rubbish chute which we are alarmingly surprised. We thanks him so much for the work done in this 2 weeks to help coordinate and keep the works on schedule. I will let the rest of the pic talks. BEFORE WORK IN PROGRESS AFTER FREE RUBBISH CHUTE FROM THE ID

  18. Our resale 4 room flat renovation was recently completed and I must say we are really satisfied with the results. Through out the whole renovation process, our contractor was responsive and helpful. We have also met up multiple times to discuss on the renovation work and not even once he tried to hurry us or sounded impatient. The damage was close to 40K , however it is worth it and his prices are negotiable. Those Interested can PM me for his number and as for the communication part, I don't think it will be a problem as he is bilingual. Below are the after and before pictures.
  19. Post being removed for like the 3rd time Why renotalk why? can anyone let me know?????? @ChrisTanNK you have the same issue? i really wonder why i wanna help to bring in more business to a good contractor but the post keep get removed! Back to the topic, both @ChrisTanNK & I had the same contractor as i gotten the number from a friend that request for the contact from him. My parent's flat was renovated by this uncle called "chew". He is a down to earth & honest uncle such as that when i play joke on him, he get really nervous instead... uncle chew tag team with his daughter & actually gave honest opinion about some of my "hilarious" ideas. they are not those direct person that immediate oppose to your idea but they actually give u an other alternative way instead. they give me a "worryfree" renovation period & my parents is very pleased with him too! They will write their quote in details where we dont have worry if there is any hidden charge. They also provide us 3D drawings & different range of materials to choose. below will be some pics of my hse reno & some of other ppl's hse renovation which they send me. nowadays ID price are extraordinary high where i would really suggest to go for this contractor instead. in terms of PRICE, QUALITY & CHARACTERISTIC, i believe my contractor will win for sure:D:D:D:D
  20. Hi everyone, best to read up about renovation scams here in Singapore. Hopefully they can provide us with information on how to better protect ourselves against such scams: https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/courts-crime/man-admits-to-role-in-renovation-scam https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/courts-crime/dad-of-seven-pleads-guilty-to-taking-part-in-wifes-16million-renovation-scam https://www.tnp.sg/news/singapore/father-7-pleads-guilty-652k-cheating-case Has anybody here been scammed before?
  21. Have just finished my home reno works recently, mine is a 5room resale. However before tht I have been spending about 3 months looking for ID with lowest quote and all. I happened to came across this ID Belle during a event at gain city. So we had a small discussion and she asked for my number to follow up with me. Infact I have forgotten to reply her for about a week as I was really busy with work. But she was really patience, a few ID that I have met didn't even bother to follow up with me. When I tell her about my requirements, she was v honest, she told me what is necessary to do and what is not. Honestly her quote wasn't the lowest one but during the discussion I felt that she was able to understand what I want, and it allows me to have a better understanding on which area to spent on. And for the v least she is v responsive. I was really comfortable with her and decided to go with her as my ID after doing some research on interior times. Everything went well during the reno, there are some Minor issues but Belle is v efficient with handling and getting back to me with either a solution or alternative, I really appreciate the hard work she have put in. Overall I'm glad that to have her as my ID, as there is no renovation night mare for me hahah.

  23. The search for a home for my fiancé (S) and I began around 10 months ago. Knowing that we would be planning to get married sometime in 2017 and that we would want to move into our home right after our wedding, we wanted to get an early start on the house-hunt. Fast forward to July 2017, and as of two days ago, we are now officially (both on paper and in practice too – we just received our keys!) home-owners of an HDB executive maisonette in the west side of Singapore (: We’ll be doing some pretty extensive renovations (pretty much a complete makeover) – hacking, shifting layouts of the existing rooms, flooring, electrical works, a whole great deal of carpentry etc. The original floorplan: The 2 biggest changes to the layout will be: 1) Kitchen: As an avid baker, I know I'll be spending a great deal of my time here. So one of the prerequisites in our house hunt was to find a place that could accommodate a big kitchen. Thank God that HDB has approved our proposal to knock down the existing wall between the study and kitchen, so that we can convert the entire area into 1 giant kitchen (: 2) MBR: One of the first things we noticed when viewing the flat was that the existing corridor space outside Bedroom 2 is pretty much a dead space. So we decided to wall in the entire area, "reclaim" the dead space for a walk-in wardrobe, build a door from WC2 to Bedroom 2 and use that as our MBR instead. One more layout change is to make WC3 into a slightly more squarish layout, as this would improve the layout for the kitchen, and what will become the "corridor" to the yard area doesn't have to be quite so wide anyway. This is still pending HDB's approval though, but we're keeping our hopes up and praying hard!
  24. Hi All, I was thinking of doing overlay of Vinyl Tiles on my existing on Terrazo flooring for my 3 NG resale flat. However, as the existing skirting is the curved kind (common for Terrazo flooring), it is necessary to hack off the existing skirting right . Was quoted $700 just to hack off the skirting for living room and 2 bed rooms. Need advise to know if the charges are reasonable. Also, I also prefer if its possible to overlay without any hacking. Appreciate all good advise. Thanks all !
