No more leakage. No more flooding. Totally dry

Aschick,

My apologies. In case your question goes unanswered due to my long response, I am reposting it:

Dear Icon Interior, in an unrelated issue, is it your practice and credible to start carpentry works before satisfactory acceptance of 3D design by your client?

Hi all...

I am currently looking out for a flat for my family of 4 (coming 5!)...

Would like to check if it's possible to have a complete makeover of an EM within 60K?

Expected works including hacking away of (really) old flooring & kitchen, and just doing bare minimum of relaying whole flooring + kitchen + 3 toilets + (maybe) built-in wardrobe for Master.

:)

Unlikely. 5 years ago I did it for just over 40k and did not do the flooring (except for kitchen and bathrooms). I repolished the marble and relacquered the parquet. I also redid the staircase and windows. If it is the first owner you are buying from (I suspect it is, since the extensive makeover) then you must allocate money to redo the 20-year old electrical wiring for safety's sake. We need much more powerpoints now than 20 years ago and extension plugs and cords are just a fire waiting to happen.

Has anyone changed the direction of their staircase? We have just bought an EM but the start of the staircase faces the kitchen door and cuts the space between the living room and the dining room. The demarcation is good but we were thinking maybe can shift the lower half of the staircase against the wall - which is similar to other EM layouts i've seen. This will then open up the space of the house. Currently the space under the stairs is very wasted!

hi all

i m new EM owner. have been following the forum for a looonnng time. finally getting my keys next week. would like to check with EM owners who have done total overhaul for their house, how much was ur reno? the 1st quote i jus received fr a contractor is $123k. almost fainted! !!! is this normal? i am really tearing down the whole house, even realigning stairs.

can anyone who has done a total overhaul for their reno share their quotation with me? quite desperate cos once i get keys next week i hve to start reno immediately....only hve 6 weeks to complete reno so that i cn move out of my current location.

thx in adv

Can't comment much cos didn't see you quote but if it is ID and u r using all top grade material then it is about there. For your info, the stair is a killer.

I have seen many doing major over hual from 50k to 80k.

Hello! Can i check if you managed to realign the stairs? Did you need to go get some engineer/architect and submit proposal to HDB for approval? Or can just hack. How much was the cost?

Hi, currently a proud owner of an EM. Did a lot of research and almost got about 15 quotes for reno.

Almost all the reno cost btw 80-100k as EM is like renovating two houses.

Eventually chose 281 design which i felt quite reasonable compared to the others.

No awaiting to see the job completed without any problems.
