Today went down to meet ID and tiler to discuss on some dimension. Keep hearing ID and tiler discuss how to do to have 漂亮收口 for the tiling work. Will share more photos on those 收口..

Kitchen tiles are up. Those small plastic piece are to leave small and uniform gaps between tiles.

I asked tiler, how come the opening of the rubbish chute so small nia?

His reply, to ensure a flat surface and uniform gap. He will enlarge the opening when tiles are dry.

Tiler is very detail in his work. :thumbs up:

Asked him how come the three tiles (right side of the photo) are shorter than the rest?

His reply, to leave space for wall to be erect.

By putting the wires between hollow blocks is to strengthen the wall.

Shelving at common toilet, using marble effect tiles. :thumbs up:

This hole at common toilet is for the storage heater. The angle is to increase the walking space.

After 19 days of renovation...

photo48_zps5ef5a766.jpg

Master toilet. Can u notice the difference in the black tiles (third tiles from the top)? The tiles are cut slightly shorter to achieve a 漂亮收口. Tiler is very detail on those 收口. :good:

photo50_zpse02477ec.jpg

ID specially request tiler to shift the shelve in by 10mm to look nicer. Tiler will need to cut a small piece of tile to patch up the small gap.

photo47_zpsb9489132.jpg

Living hall tiles (marble effect) are up. :sport-smiley-004:

photo51_zpsc2685222.jpg

There will be a step separate living and kitchen. Why the tiles do half way? It is the gap for the sliding door to flush with kitchen wall. Sorry if I sound confuse to u. Will post more clearer photo when the tile is complete. :yamseng:

HappyAng, your renovation is progress well. your living hall and kitchen flooring flushed? or is there a step?

There will be a drop (about one tile thickness) between living hall and kitchen.

Looks like your renovation is moving fast too! :thumbs up: Moving in before CNY?

Amazed by your contractor's/your attention to details! I should learn from you and pay attention to these things too :P

Our renovation is schedule to complete end Mar or early Apr. All cement screed to complete by 08/02/13 and leave it to dry fully during the CNY period. I am very particular on the 收口.. Glad that my ID is also very detail in my renovation work. :good: Tilers are also very skilful, I will also buy drinks for them on every visit..

Woah nice ! HappyAng, are you boxing up the pipings in toilets? Seeing your progress makes me even more excited on my upcoming project

Yes, will boxed up the pipings in all three toilets. Enjoy your renovation journey. I am camping at your T-blog for more photo. :yamseng:

After 20 days of renovation...

photo58_zps2d173edd.jpg

Floor tiles for level one toilet.

Since it is small area, we do a step with small gradient at the shower area. Water can easily flow to the floor trap. Decide to use stainless steel floor trap, since there isn't extra charge and easy to open. :good:

photo53_zps2b47e7a5.jpg

The plastic piece is embedded into the cement to prevent the edge from easy chip off.

photo55_zps8d696793.jpg

Hollow block wall and cabinet base are up.

Notice the base is slightly shorter than the hollow block wall? Again, ID request tiler to do so, say the finishing is nicer this way. :sport-smiley-004:

photo54_zpsefe9fe8f.jpg

Notice that the tiler is very detail with his work. Even the hole for the water to drain, internal wall (such a small area) also cover with tiles. :bow:

photo59_zps60fc57e8.jpg

The tiler also do a cover (both side are tiles, at the left side of the photo) for the drain hole. :jawdrop: Really appreciate his hard work. :good:
