  2. Blog Entry Date: 9th May 2017 Tuesday An Introduction. First of all, thank you very much for taking the time to check out my humble little blog, and i'd like to take this opportunity to share my renovation journey with you. I hope the information I put here may be useful to anyone (especially fellow 2 roomers) who is also starting on their renovation soon! As of the time of writing, I have not yet gotten my keys and according to HDB it'll be around Q3 2017. As time goes by, I will post whenever possible right from Concept 3D Design to ID selection up to Completion of Renovation. Hopefully, everything goes smoothly. This is also my first time writing a blog so please be gentle with me! Please note: I've also made a backup of this blog on Wordpress incase this post is taken down by Renotalk for any reason in the future. Other than a few slight formatting changes, the contents will be identical. (This is also a preferred link if you prefer reading the blog from beginning to end with no interruptions.) The Website is: https://hdb2roomrenovation.wordpress.com/ -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= How to Use this Blog: I HIGHLY RECOMMEND to use the Table of Contents to navigate because it shows the correct sequence of events, without needing to go thru pages of comments to look for each Blog Entry. It is also easier for folks who want to instantly jump to which section they are more interested in. Whenever you need to jump back to the Table of Contents, simply click on this link: Click Here to go back to Page 1 - Table of Contents to instantly jump back to Page 1 of this Blog. This link will be available at the Top and Bottom of every Blog Entry that I add. Additional Addendum: I have now added direct links to the next blog entry at the end of every post. They look like this: (Click Here for the Next Blog Entry:) Found it abit silly and unfair to request for readers to always go back to Table of Contents just to go to the next entry. So sorry for the inconvenience, this blog should hopefully be less confusing and flow more smoothly. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Table of Contents: 01) HDB Floorplan and My 3D Design made with Planner 5D 02) The Search for an Interior Designer for my Project begins... 03) Tile Selection at Soon Bee Huat 04) Selection of Laminates 05) An RC Event I attended which showed for the first time how my apartment would look like! 06) My First Obstacle...one of my ID left without informing me!

  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~!

  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. Hi there ! As the title says I don't normally recommend services publicly, but I feel this firm I've dealt with could save some homes as it did mine My fiance found this guy (an interior designer) from his extended group of friends while out at the pubs one night (Not a great start to the story hah !), anyway we moved into our new condo about 5 months later. Did our rounds and got quotations from afew firms, thought we'd give our new "friend" a try as well. He gave us probably one of the best quotations out of those we'd already gotten. A main selling point for us was that this was a long-standing family business and it's being run by a son/dad combo, we're adamant that family businesses do very good work or else they wouldn't be around for that long. Other factors that led to our decision was his wide portfolio of projects, modern outlook and clean workmanship. We got to work, and although our friend wasn't free to meet for the most part, the employee he hooked us up with was extremely insightful and cautioned us on certain decisions, even showed us some of the current trendy layouts. We ended up realising our vision didn't feel as modern as the current trend so we took most from his portfolios haha. So all was well and his workmanship was excellent, the part that really threw me into recommending his services was that he took it upon himself and his firm's contractors to fix some minor existing problems in the condominium and when we asked him how much these fixes costed, he didn't change his quote and merely laughed it off saying "That's what full package means ! Don't worry about it". The least I could do to repay this good service is to share it with the community, to be fair he did say "if you have any friends who need, must say me okay ?". Would be very glad to share his contact and save some other people's homes too haha !

  12. As a noob when it comes to renovating, I had restless nights since the day I got quotations from various IDs ( some quotation are quite confusing tho ) But that's when I started to learn and slowly becoming a so called "expert" in it. Comparing and finalising from few quotations I had in hand was really difficult and mind-taxing. That is when I met up with my designer from Ben Design Firm. The meet-ups was always comfortable and relaxing. Not only, did my ID patiently listen to my Husband and mine ideas and requests. he also slowly guided us throughout our discussions. He also proposed good and constructive ideas to meet our requests. Aside he is responsive to calls and most of our discussion was over the phone, so things were settled quickly. He always does his best and do not over commit and give empty promises. Though, it is the initial stage of the whole renovation, I am very impressed with his professionalism and responsibility. In addition,. he is also very knowledgeableand often advise us the pros and cons during discussion. Just did my handover last week and my whole renovation process with him will be an enjoyable and hassle free one. So far, I am very satisfied, I would definitely recommend Ben Design Firm to others. I am proud to announce my new home. Cheers to all. If u require my ID contact , you may drop me your email or contact number.

  14. Hello everyone! My wife and I are avid readers of renotalk and have been reading all the amazing home transformations, taking pointers from all the experienced gurus here. Now that our renovation journey is about to come to an end, we thought we would like to give back as well by sharing how the whole process went by. A short introduction, we were house scouting back in 2014, and completed all the paperwork in mid 2015. After our ROM (HDB's requirement), we embarked on our renovation journey in September 2015 and completed everything just before Christmas last year. It has been a roller coaster of a journey, and we have learnt so much from everyone in renotalk, contractors and IDs. I'm sure it has been, or will be for all of you too. So, without further ado, our floor plan. We knew we wanted to get a resale 5 room flat, so we spent quite some time deciding on what floor plan we would like to have, and after extensive reading, we decided on a maisonette because we like to host guests and everyone could hang out downstairs while we could keep our privacy upstairs. We also browsed through many pages on renotalk with 'interesting' floor plans, good and not so ideal floor plans for designing, and figured this was probably one of the better layouts available for EMs. Basically we liked big spaces and wanted to fully maximise the space usage available. We kind of decided on how we wanted our house to look like even before purchasing the place. Haha. So we chanced upon this house after 3 - 4 months of home viewings, non-stop propertyguru surfing and bought the place! Some before photos: Actually the place is pretty much move in condition, just need to do some minor renovation in the toilets and refurbishment works for the cabinets and it would be very good already. But then you see all those pretty pictures and renovation plans from hipvan and other tblog chats, wa.. we decided to do a complete overhaul. Heh. So, next was ID hunting!
  15. 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

  17. 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**
  18. Hi Everyone, Would like to share my terrible renovation experience with you to avoid such unpleasant experience that i had, and also to seek for your advice on what action I can take against my immoral and unprofessional contractors. 2016 Sep, I found an interior design company “Singapore Carpentry Spaces Pte Ltd” to do my shop renovation. From a few prior renovation discussion with the ID, I had a good impression on him. So I decided to award my project (shop renovation in a shop mall) to his company. The ID was sincere and told me that his company doesn’t have any electrician. Thus he could recommend his partner, SOH CHOON SENG (CS ELECTRICAL AND PLUMBING SERVICES), without any price mark-up for electrical work. I finally agreed to use SOH CHOON SENG‘s service and this has resulted in the nightmare thereafter. I don’t know SOH CHOON SENG and I want to keep one single of contact to make my job easy. So I told the ID from the beginning that I will communicate to him only for all renovation work related. He agreed for a good will, he would help liaise with his partner SOH CHOON SENG. Initially I planned to buy lights from China and shipped here to save cost. My ID suggested to help me buy from Johor as he knew a few shops there and the price is as low as half to one third of Singapore’s price. I thought it was a good idea and agreed. Until a few days before the lights installed, I was informed that SOH CHOON SENG bought the lights from some local factory at a lower cost. I asked for the price. It was not given to me until the final invoice. Attached has the invoice for lights. The spot lights are charged S$28 and S$38 separately. I also attached the photo of spot lights used. If the lights was good and worthy for the prices, that would be fine. In the first two weeks, three spot lights are spoiled. When I asked for warranty, he agreed to come back to change if they are spoiled. (see our conversation attached). However after he had replaced 10 spoiled lights within one month, he stop responding to me for spoiled lights any more. In the last 5 months, totally 30+ such spot lights are spoiled.. This really pissed me off. This was not the only thing. When he was doing the renovation, he found one of the electrical requirement was not fulfilled as specified in my contract with landlord. I told the mall management and my contractor it should be fixed by mall management. However I overhead the conversation between SOH CHOON SENG and his best friend and the LEW of my side, Ng Yue ham, at the shopping mall escalator. I happened standing behind them. SOH CHOO SENG saw me and keep silent. Ng Yue ham didn’t know me and kept talking. Ng Yue ham gave him idea of forcing me to fix the issue because both parties(mall managements’ LEW and they) will get paid. I was angry and told my ID what I heard. SOH CHOON SENG explained that Ng Yue ham was 胡说八道. And asked me don’t take it serious. To avoid further delay to my delayed renovation(this could be another topic of SOH CHOON SENG and my ID), I agreed to help mall management fix it at my own cost if the cost is 1k around. The fix involves the shopping mall’s LEW to shutting down the building electricity and update the drawing diagram. Building's LEW initially quoted me 2k plus, which I declined and refused to do. My smart LEW Ng Yue ham spoke to his counterpart and ask them to split the cost into two receipt and charge me separately so it would look cheaper. However the admin of mall management’s LEW company called me and told me about it. She explained that such method is not allowed and illegal. It once again updated me my impression on them! There is a lot to say about the immoral and unprofessional things that they have done. The project is really poor quality and pissed me off. I also felt that their price is super expensive considering its quality. However I didn’t sign service agreement with him. What shall i do to make him pay back for the terrible things done to me? Thanks for your advice in advance.
  19. We know the trend now is for consumers to buy directly from Suppliers. Especially those from Johor. Reason? Cost saving of course! Homeowners are smart nowadays. They research and shop online for the cheapest and best deals. So Renotalk has since expanded into Johor and get suppliers and interior designers or contractors listed here https://www.renotalk.com/johor Got any good ones to suggest? let us know or you can send this link to your friends to register: https://www.renotalk.com/business/register
  20. Hello RenoTalkers! Hope you're all having a good day For those of you who have renovated your house (either recently or in the past), what are some traumatic events you experienced during the renovation process? Was it an ID from ****? Terrible contractor? Do share your thoughts with us!
  21. Hi there! I have just kick started my 2-months long renovation but am already bogged down by two troubles 1) Unsatisfactory quality of work provided by window installation contractor The window contractor provided sub-par service e.g cement was unevenly applied such that some stretches are more hollow. This is not a joking situation as my flat is a corner-unit, hence should the windor falls due to poor installation, it could easily kill passerbys or break cars. On the first complain, the contractor has agreed to re-do the cementing. In their own defence, the contractors claimed that the unsatisfactory work was due to the fact that the employees are not well-trained in handling high-rise hdb flats; more trained in handling landed houses. Also, the dust filter that should be securely stuck to the bottom-edge of the window easily peel-ed off!! What can I do if the re-cementing is still unsatisfactory? 2) Incessant complaining from neighbour staying directly below our unit Since the start of our renovation, this neighbour has been making persistent complains about our noisy renovation. However, our contractors have completed the major hackings within the assigned dates. On everyday basis, renovation begins after 9am and ends before 6pm. Apart from complains on noise, she has also accused us of ruining her ceiling. Prior to kicking start our renovation, we had requested to enter their house and took photos of their ceilings. Photos were provided as evidence that her current state of ceiling were the same prior to our renovation. She has since insisted for us to pay for her maintenance else she would sue us.
