Furkid & Baby Kayden & Us Small Cosy Place Again!

Recommended Posts

hi ya, am back after such a long time...like all old birdies not around liao ah?

not much changes, just that one of my furkid baby gal passed on due to old age(i missed her so much!!)

i also had a baby (a toddler now), how time flies!!

am moving for the 3rd time, purely wanted to upgrade as my baby will need more area to run around later and well, before the flat prices soar further

hmmm nothing much to do now, waiting to complete current sale and purchase of flat.

got 2 months extension from buyer, and just managed to get a resale flat today...in original condition, thats my intention as we wanted to have major renovation

IDs wise, hahahhah maybe ROY TAN again

but that will depend on his quote liao!!

well just to get down the dates:

26/06/11 deposit paid

09/07/11 exercise OTP

23/07/11 Fengshui Audit

29/08/11 1st Appointment

21/10/11 2nd Appointment & Key collection

23/10/11 Open Door Ceremony @ 2.30pm

01/11/11 Hacking start @ 3.15pm

Kitchen

DSC00338.jpg

Common Toilet

DSC00339.jpg

not able to take picture of MBR as the owner was showering lolz...

also gotton my quote from 2 person:

1) Contractor (sister good fren)

overall the quote was good and it was really a "friendship" price

but is a contractor, so dun expect "fanciful" design, you have to tell him wat you want

but me and hubby not much design sense, worried tat we turn our house upside down lolzzz

2) Roy Tan from IR Design (former Inzen)

as roy did up my previous flat and overall we were quite satisfied with him

Pros: good working attitude, good sense of design, chin chye, direct and most can click with him

Cons: he is very busy as he is like 1 man show. so waiting for his reply is like....zzzzz but i kiasu, getting my flat in oct and i already gotton him to quote

we decided on ROY again as my hub prefer him althought his quote is slightly higher than the contractor...

"yi fen qian yi fen huo" lo ;)

in my case, i cant afford to wait till getting keys then quote as i need to move out of current flat by early dec 10 (getting flat in mid oct) so the reno timeline is quite tight

btw just to share, you can purchase floor plan online, take few days only

with that you roughly know wat you want and can start to get IDs to quote

cos i was kuku last time, get my floor plan only during 2nd appt thus wasted lots of time

will post up the quote later :yamseng:

back for some updates:

sad to say that due to some communications breakdown / tight timeline / budget constaint, we decided not to engage Roy for the reno as he is not able to accomodate some of our requests.

we have gotton a good friend for the job instead - Dave Wee from D5 Studio (we did engaged him for our first home but workmanship so so hahahah so second flat was done by Roy)

Hubby have known him for 20 over years, didnt want to engage him in the first place as i was septical about the workmanship since we are gonna to stay long in this house and i am a pretty "meow" mama...but frankly, it was like 8 years back when he did our first house, so i think people's attitude and skills do change, ought to give him a chance. to my surprise, he made us feel comfy with the ideas, response time, attitude (MOST IMPT) & quote as some people cant be much bothered since we only have a budget of $40k for reno (maybe they dun earn much, thats why not very keen on my project)

we just call him on 1 sat and told him tat we are visiting him on sun for discussion and he managed to show us a simple floor plan drawing even with the lighting points done up! next week he will be giving us our 3Ds

our quote is a "friendship" price, including:

all hacking

all tiling

all windows

1 x TV console

2 x wardrobes

shoe cabinet OR bay window settee with storage

kitchen cabinet

all doors

all electrical rewiring

plastering / painting / washing bla bla

tiles selection on tuesday (25 oct 2011)

Living

we are going for "matte" floor tiles as i realised not easy to maintain a glossy ones as i have a toddler running and dropping food around the house ahahahha

gout wise, we also not going for traditional white, it would be cement based kind of gout

most commonly seen are glossy ones, wonder who would have same taste like us? kekekek

Kitchen

white glossy wall tiles with little shimmer floor tiles

Common Toilet

actually i do not like white wall tiles for toilet but it make the area look brighter

i still prefer a darker one, shall i change??

Welcome to renoblog! I only use Matt tiles for whole house n I am loving it! No sticky feet anymore! Previous Reno was glossy n I felt sticky all the time :o

FYI, my living n bedroom r all cement lookalike tiles...We do have something in common!

As for dark bathroom, it's really dark so u have to consider the pros n cons as u have young kid. My twin boys r already 13yrs old n they love orh orh everything with warm light though...
