Our 1st Place

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, I finally gathered enough courage to start my own T-Blog after reading so many inspiring ones quietly. Just went for our 1st appointment not too long along, and barring any additional delay than the extension that we are probably give to the current owners, we should be getting our keys in the beginning of May.

Hopefully, we can share our experiences long the way as i go along with my renovation and get pointers from all the experienced peeps here.

Got a few quotes from a few IDs already and all i can say is,"Kill Me!!"

Anyway, heres the Floor plan of our new place;

Thanks for all the encouragement.

Today i went to the International furniture Fair at the expo hoping to get some ideas on what kind of furnishings i might wanna get. I was told that some of these guys sell their furniture cheap coz they do not want to bring it back with them when the fair is over. There are some very nice looking ones.

Well, i did not have to the courage to ask them if they are selling. Maybe i should ask my friend who got his furniture from there last year to go with me.

Anyway, i am back to square one. Gonna have to scout around for furnitures at stores in singapore.

Well, the place is 26yrs old this year. Current owners kept it spick and span but most of the things in the house are ORIGINAL and ORIGINAL CONDITION. In eg, the wiring, floorings, plumbings, pimpled walled and cornices. So it looks like a major overhaul.

LOL... my budget was lower... but think based on the amt of restoration works i need to do... it's at least $60K... still trying to keep it at $60K and lower... sigh...

btw, you have your preferred floor layout yet?

just want to find out, how you intend to use the study/utility/storeroom at the 1st level...
