Alamak... previous posts gone!

To recap:

Quotation I got from one ID for EA Premium Flat $14,477 + GST.

  • Had received comments that kitchen cabinets are rather costly @ about $110 pfr. ID remarked that it is of good quality (thicker material) but then again, is that an important factor?
  • What is the difference between a solid plywood postform and polyester solid surface for kitchen top?
  • Study table (10 ft) inclusive of one row drawer is $1,210.
  • Ceiling works are almost 10% and it is only on selective areas. For example, L Box @ Dining & Dining and False ceiling for Foyer, Hallway, MBR, Study and Living.

The quote still lacks of some items, but at least we can rest assured it will not tear a bigger hole in our pockets!

Still waiting for other quotations for comparison. I must say it is quite daunting at times to receive quotations that are way over your budget. It's like, err, that's not what we're prepared to pay... surely there's plenty of room for improvement.

The thing is, I feel we started off with the hunt rather aggressively, specifically informing them of what needs to be done and of course the amount we're so willing to pay. But the quotes almost always seem to shock us. Now, we just tell them the same thing but with a tighter budget to work on. Not sure how effective this is, but at least IDs are more than willing to offer alternative solutions.

Hmm, I wonder how much it is to overlay the entire master toilet. What can be done to hide the hideous pipings? Err, the bigger pipes situated on top can be concealed with an L box I guess, but what about the smaller pipes that leads to the shower mixer? Hmm...
