i am not sure cos i signed with him then he prepare the 3D. but i understand normally he will only provide 3D after signing cos he needs a bit of time to prepare as he's not a 100% designer.

for me, after he recce my place and emailed me the quote a few days later...i saw and quite ok with the quote..den met him again & signed quote liao...he den prepared a simple black & white 3D drawing let me see.

i'm more concerned with the feel of the contractor; whether can communicate easily and of cos, if the price is reasonable.

Hello! It's been a long time since I showed up here. Lots of things have happened in between the time Edmund quoted me and now... We are currently having a tenant in my house, so we couldn't proceed with reno works as planned, but we will be looking to start in August 2010. Have emailed Edmund to ask him to be our contractor! Hope he will be able to take on my job... I'm even willing to start late August to accommodate him...Yippeee....

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

date posted:2010-05-09

author name: samgalz

welcome too then. I would have finished my reno then so edmund will be one less project on hand so maybe can put urs in liao. hope he agrees to you!

Meanwhile my 3Ds are in my T-blog. so all can that for the time being.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

date posted:2010-05-10

author name: yuene

Haha! I already told him I'm fine with starting in late-August, and now arranging to meet up with him to discuss the final contract and sign... Only thing is that my dream concrete screed flooring cannot be done, because he was very upfront and said that the person who used to do for him is no longer working for him... so if I wanted the concrete screed he wouldn't be able to go ahead... I'd rather forgo the floor than forgo the contractor, so I'm replacing with laminates and going for the Scandinavian look instead...

Nice 3Ds btw!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

author name: Jupiter Home

Welcome yuene, the last time we chatted was like last Jul wor

time flies...

Wah you going for the scandinavian look, interesting!

So when is your next meeting with edmund?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

author name: yuene

Jupiter: YA! Time flies so fast. Glad that you still remember me... Actually he's supposed to be here at my place now, to final discussion and to sign the contract... but I think he's late, probably stuck in traffic somewhere.

author name: froggy

Hi Samgalz

Trying to understand how it works. Have you signed with Edmund or haven't you? Do you mean he will give you 3D even before you sign? Does this normally come after several meetings?

What's the procedure like? Eg: you meet several ID/contractors and get quote and layout plan. This may take several meetings to fine-tune the layout, still with most of the IDs right?

At some stage, you throw out some of the proposals but still not firm up with a single ID. Do you kind of indicate to them that they are one of the shortlisted ones? Then what happens - just wait for the owner to call to call and say deal is on?

How far does an ID/contractor go, as far as design and material selection etc, before the owner signs.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

date posted:2010-04-29

author name: samgalz

ok, sorry if i got u confused. I have selected DX but have not signed up as edmund wanted to do site measurement and give me a more precise quote before signing up.

for me, i get several to quote then started shorlisted based on price/chemistry when we meet or when we spoke on the phone. We sort of decided quite early that we prefer Edmund and we did indicate to him that we will award the job to him. but we will only sign after quote is finalised to both parties' satisfaction. as for 3D, what i understand is that edmund normally only draw after u confirmed. I think since i had confirmed it's him unofficially so he did say he will do skeleton 3D (dunno what's that, my interpretation is initial 3D) so it will be more effective in our final discussion before official signing.

hope this explains.

hey ya, I agree. To minimise additional cost, you have to list out all the detail work done so you will know who provide hidden cost or not...Same like me, I was d one requested "extras"...heeya....

hi all,

am interested in getting dx interior to do up my place. any idea if his quotation has hidden costs or additional costs that will be added along the way? thanks in advance
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
date posted:2010-04-17
author name: alamak

there will always be additional cost along the way for all reno. better to ask edmund to do a site visit and he will let you know upfront as soon as he knows it. along the reno process, there might also be some additional works that might be required, Edmund will also let you know 1st.

one way to minimize additional cost is to have your reno works list be as detail as possible before you sign with anyone. then less chance for additions unless it's requested by yourself or things that were discovered along the way.

for my case, most of the additional costs were requested by myself.

author name: Pat@CV

agreed. take for instance, when edmund was doing my balcony windows, his contractor told him there will be additional cost for using green glass instead of clear glass, he quickly sms-ed me and ask me if i want to proceed or if i want to go to other window contractor of my own choice for better pricing. of cos i told him to proceed since the additional cost is less than $200 plus his good integrity.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
date posted:2010-04-18
author name: samgalz

yeah, agree...so far though i have not signed up with Edmund but during this process, Edmund insist to hv all cost clear before signing as contra to other contractors or ID who keep asking to sign before site measurement. so in this part i'm very sure of his integrity. Also he always am open to us taking out certain items if we feel tat we can get better pricing outside. In fact he ENCOURAGE.

I notice edmund DID NOT FOLLOW UP at all contrary to other ids who keep calling me to sign with them, with each call offering a better discount.
But whenever I call edmund he do pick up my call.

Hi Pat,

I don't think Edmund will reject you becos of your budget.

I think its more on timing bah.

Last December, recommended a friend with a budget of 60k to do up her apartment but kana rejected by Edmund wor!

Reason given was that he already promised quite a number of home owners to complete their reno by CNY, he's too busy to commit projects.

For this, I really salute him for his professional approach.

so far so good, have actually added in some additional items, so budget slightly increased but i feel it was reasonable.

confirmed his quote on 27 feb and to think i went to his shop & discuss the quote in detail and the whole session lasted abt 2hrs! haha... edmund was realli very patient and gives gd explanation on y shld get certain material finishing and y shld not.

so far he's proactive in the schedule planning, window contractors had come to take measurements and tml (6 Feb) im meeting him & his carpentry contractor to take actual measurement of my kitchen cabinet location.

rectification so far ok. now left painting touch up (quite alot) and carpentry rectification.

Hi alamak,
Thanks for sharing.
Nice to hear that rectification is going on smoothly.
Believe Edmund must be nice person to talk to & can cham siong type.
But but how about his workers?
Will they show you that type of pull long face kind of attitude?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

date posted:2010-02-05
author name: alamak

his sub con and workers are mostly quite ok, no problems. But 1st painter and door painter not that good. But Edmund sent another painter to touch up and he was much better. The door painter was from the door company and he was quite bad. Edmund made him go to my place and pin point to him the things that need to be touch up.

So far the process is quite smooth with a few hiccups which is expected for any reno. Edmund has been there when needed and things that needs to be done or redone, he will do it. I am quite satisfied with him.

Today just moved in. Will give a moire detailed review when I am more free.

thanks for sharing.
Now I'm having my quote revised for the 3rd time, find that edmund is very patience & easily contactable.
Again because I've yet to confirm with him, that's why he's quite easy to contact.
How about you, is he still remain contactable after you confirm with him?
Heard of some id once you confirm their attitude change.

Yup! You won't believe this, but I've actually been planning my reno for , what? coming 1.5 years liao? Kancheong right? Cuz when we bought our home we just moved in with minimal reno (just the toilets and repainting, and some electrical wiring), because the previous owner reno-ed 5-6 years before that and everything was in 'liveable' condition. But now 3 years later things slowly falling apart...one of my doorknobs fell off recently, so we now secure that room door with a jumper cable! SIAN. Also, the layout of the kitchen is not very ideal.

I think secretly my hb also sian of hearing me complain already, until he also agree to bring forward the renovation...

Hey hey! Another person with a long way to wait before the start of renovations! Good luck with yours...

Spent abt 3hours just discussing wor...Since he's a contractor...hmm..we've got to propose to him our ideas etc & he'll guide us along, giving advices etc..quite and experience & nice chap who potrays a highly responsible attribute..well, dats how my 1st impression on him was lar...hopefully, it'll be like dat all d way till d end...if I ever signed up wif him...

Neway, he has suggested to view the unit 1st for the measurements etc for a clearer pic of the unit before he can further study on my proposed layout so as to allow him to quote accordingly. I think this should be the correct way lor...rather than just quoting directly from the floorplan... Will be arranging for a site view soon...gotta make sure the current owner of the unit is avail. & hopefully he doesn't mind...gonna look for my agent liao to arrange this....Will keep you guys posted of any updates...Wish me luck..praying hard can really..really get a good quote from Dx soon!!

Hi risis,

Wow! I spent few hours reading all 13 pages of your exciting reno experience.
A very cheerful & colourful house with a lot of daring use of colours.
With so many colours to take care, I think mistake sure happen.

Just to check with you, if your contractor,edmund, make any mistake, will he try to argue his way through or force you to accept ?

Hihi yuene, Hopefully Edmund can give you a good quote, so we can at his 3ds.I can say he's a fussy contractor, never compromise on quality.
His aftersales service is fantastic. When one of my cabinet door got "bubble", immediately he got it change without giving any excuses & that is after handover

& payments already fully paid.

Hey Jupiter,

Edmund got back to me yesterday with the quote, so far not bad... got the essential works and managed to stay within the budget. But I'm still saving money for the reno, so I'm not sure if I should ask him to come take measurements now, or closer to the date (like in December)...

Hi, bumped into this thread while making my rounds here in RT...I'm currently looking around in search of a reliable ID/Contractor for my new home. Well, I would say I'm pretty early in my search coz if I got it right, reno would only be able to start either end Nov or early Dec. Have been to 3 well-known ID firms so far and would say its quite an experience. Learnt quite alot from the discussions & ultimately, the husband & I sumhow are able to visualise the intended renoworks that we are into; concepts, colors, space layout etc. However, have yet to receive the quotes from the abv.3 firm. Only 1 managed to do a real rough estimation based on the discussion we had from the floorplan & well, sadly, I think it will exceed our budget rather significantly.


Moving on, I would say its rather an interesting task to scout around for IDs/Contractors asking for quotes to compare etc. But sumtimes, I feel, the more ideas proposed, the more confused & lost we became..Jialat like dat!! Neway, to cut story short, after I chance upon this thread on Dx Interior, I have this sudden urge to consider it as on of my possible choice...Jupiter & Risis, I think u guys did a great job on 'advertising' Dx Interior in this thread. Not the kind of 'adverstising' I mean. Its basically the ability to convince newbie like me that 'it is ok, hassle-free, reliable & most importantly a commited firm who will see thru ur reno, ensuring everything is smooth & on d right track. Thanks once again yeah! <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="wink.gif" border="0" alt="wink.gif" />


I will be emailing Dx Interior soon...for a quotation or maybe a discussion to have a clearer view of everything. Meanwhile, I shall be keeping my fingers crossed that whichever firm or whoever is being choosen will 'place their heart & soul' thruout the reno process of our sanctuary & hopefully will be able to fit into our budget.. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/unsure.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="unsure.gif" border="0" alt="unsure.gif" />


Wish me luck peeps. I need loads of that!!...I am open to questions/suggestions also. So anything good/bad feel free to share ok.


Thank you very much

Hihi all,

Just contacted Edmund for a quote for my reno, now waiting for the amount to come in... Hopefully it's not too expensive... So far seems like a nice guy, how was everyone's experience with him?

mmm.... time is bad, even contractor have to provide 3ds.

Nice 3ds

hehe..no la..is his passion... most contractors would at most sketch the carpentary. A friend of mine is also doing her renovation, but with another contractor. That contractor did not even sketch anything and proceeded to do already, making my friend really frustrated as they dont know what to expect.

Edmund, on the other hand, spend wks with me just to get the design right...

mmm.... maybe I should rephrase my statement.

time is bad, contractor that can provide 3ds is giving id a run for their $$

Your friend's contractor either is really CMI, or maybe he wanna surprise your friend, make the reno more xciting.
