i may not be the best but i always look out for small details.

so contractor cannot bluff me :)

in any case, u not afraid the pans collect dust?

We cook every day, other pots and pans that are not used very often are kept in the cabinet.

We thought about it as well.

you have cement floors too! did you leave it raw or did you apply a layer of sealant?

noticed your kitchen is tiled..did you tile it or it was left untouched during reno?

i like your subway tiles..was hoping to do that as well but was told it would be costly and time consuming to lay the tiles one by one..

Hi Lilithfiend, I applied copon polyurethane on the floor as I wanted a transparent and matte sealant.

But it seems to be peeling out like wax right now, so I may have to reapply another layer when I'm free.

Kitchen was newly tiled as we needed a heavy duty flooring.

Subway tiles and hexagonal mosiac tiles were both very costly, but we loved it too much to not do them.

Just visited your blog, did you apply 108 on your flooring?

Cos, there's also 107, which I'm considering right now, penetrating sealant.

hi, nice concept!

I'm interested to see how your bicycle is stored. Can you share where you bought the device and the price? And can show a better pic?

Thanks!!

It's Minoura 2 bike tower, I bought it 3 years back, should be $120-150 from local bike store.

No drilling required, spring-loaded tower, floor to ceiling.

Do take note of maximum ceiling height limit before purchase.

Good luck!

Here's the breakdown of the fans.

v56vk_new.jpg

KDK v56vk S$190 / R$470 includes U-hook

v60wk_new.jpg

KDK v60wk S$230 / R$560 includes U-hook

Dealer name: YES Electrical Supply, 5 mins drive from checkpoint

Address: 22, Jln Serampang, Taman Pelangi, 80050 Johor Bahru, Johor.

Phone: 07- 3339900

Have to call to check availability and reserve stock.

Fan box is relatively big, remove box before packing in car to save space.

Payment by cash only, Ringgit or SGD.

Self-installation summary:

Tools: 1x powerful hammer drill for ceiling u-hook, 1x test-pen, 3x wire connector, 1x philips screwdriver

Time: 1/2-1 hr per fan incudes drilling

Difficulty: medium, requires knowledge of drilling, connecting electrical wires, and not colour blind to differentiate wires.

Note: To prevent fan from wobbling, ensure that surrounding area meets the minimum required distance.

Extra Note: read installation manual thoroughly before installation
