U mean reciept for payment rcd? He does for my first payment subsequently too busy to issue.

Yup a receipt. Just suddenly thought of it. Looks like receipts/invoices is an exception rather than norm for Alan. Haha.

One thing about Mr Alan is he is a super easy going person. I made my first payment only after hacking and wet works were complete. Haha.

The downside is he is so busy that there's quite a bit of rectification works. Time delay.

He trusts his clients. Which is a good thing.. But give and take I guess. So long as both contractor and client know the limits, I think it's fine...

Carpentry next week!

Yup his English is good. He's definitely a busy contractor. I'll share my experience after the renovation is completed.

Overall, things has been okay. Very glad that the design so far is coming up nicely and not too far off from what i imagined to be. Maybe a little too many line patterns. Haha. The progress was a bit slow for my liking. There were also a few rectifications that has been done / waiting to be done.

My contractor has been very obliging in some of my requests, and he has been very accomodating. But sometimes the subcons do things that are beyond belief. For instance they decided to run my water pipe and gas pipe separately (different piping directions) when both are next to each other, even though my contractor has clearly marked the required pipping places. Secondly, for their convenience, the floor laminate guys decided to bring down my main door, and my door was covered up by just the gate and styrofoam sheets. There was also another interesting episode when I think the windows subcon suggested to take down my old windows one day before the new ones get installed. I overheard my contractor giving him/her a earful for such a ludicrous suggestion.

Overall, it's been a mixed bag. My contractor has been very understanding and flexible. But a lot time has been spent on rectifications. The army mantra of do-it-once-do-it-good didn't seem to be applied.

Carpentry, doors, grills and cleaning to go. It should be ready in 1.5 weeks time, hopefully! Already late. :(

Yup that's the dining area. I marked out the place for them to mount the lights. But it's a bit too bright. They are Philips 20W E27 tornadoes. Going to try use 11W instead.
