Welcome to Renotalk!

Actually, with floor tiles like those and that quirky arched doorway leading to the kitchen (so classic seventies!) you've already got the perfect retro home. It looks a whole lot like my parents' flat, which was indeed built (and last renovated) in the seventies! :D

All you need is a new coat of paint, new wiring and plumbing throughout, better fittings in the toilets and new kitchen cabinetry, and matching re-upholstered vintage furniture and you'll be finished in no time at all. It'll look great! :good:

15th Nov 2011 : Day 1

Hacking of cabinets and stove/sink supports.

Decide to pop by about 130pm to see the process which started in the late morning.

Worker went for lunch so I waited at neighbour's house.... the indian worker only return at 330pm!?!?!?

Glad to see the floor was laid with protection material, hall cabinets are already hacked off and the worker is starting on the kitchen cabinets.

1hr after I left, I received a call from the reno uncle, telling me the kitchen wall tiles are hollow.

Seem like they crack/fall off when the worker is hacking off the supports..:jawdrop:

No choice.. I ask them remove... now headache.. should i live with an tile-less wall or re-tile up half height.

Not doing any carpentry in kitchen as I intend to get the base cabinets from Ikea.

Guess better make a trip down tmr to take a look first and decide.

Forgot to take pics when i was there :bangwall:

I like the way you narrate, actually it took me 3 times before i noticed that your MahTong is not Mahjong but Toilet Bowl.

If you are on a budget. Can consider those that comes with a set. Attached a package for your reference.

Anyway i went down but didnt buy from them because I didnt get a good experience during my trip down.

System 3: can consider the Midea brand, but remember to buy the extended warranty from gaincity in case the brand is not lasting compared to the japanese brand.

I think it is about 2.3k compared to 3k for the Mitsubishi Electric one.

Hope it helps. And looking forward to your reno updates.

LOL.. i will i will...
