Hi, U may contact Benny from Lien Lien interior at 9621 1167. Can't really advise on the price as I took a package. His style is a contractor no frills dun expect 3d arty drawing design.

But he is an experienced chap with condo, landed projects background. Small touches eg My air con trunking was suggested to be hidden with plastering to achieve the clean look, design elements proposed etc

Din felt the need for 3d drawing as hdb setup r more or less the same and quite a no brainer. Beside, most drawing are overhyped initially. Not exactly a visual person too as I prefer the actual end product finishing.

Just exact your demands/budget limitation and discuss with him. Overall, he is more than competent to deliver without the bells and whistles of "branded ID" firms.

Nice reno :yamseng: Able to enquiry how much are you quoted for the Glass Panel for the Staircase? I was quoted 5k+ :jawdrop:

So many works up in just a day! What can I say? Extremely thankful for the smooth and fast progress. My contractor's background dealing with hi end projects especially condo and landed property really shines through in his work and our creation.

Even neighbours staying few units below had been popping by to check out the works,lol. Probably the din from the big amount of manpower provided created some attention. Even barriers which are usually wrought iron or aluminium grilles,steel has been put in place with glass as proposed by my contractor. Most ppl who seen my unit says it has a landed property kinda of feel. Tat is a compliment, I hope. Still stay true to our hdb heartland hearts though :)

Our house colours actually revolve around our dogs. White and brown. So how did the sombre grey came about? On Nov 10, brown mindy passed away. An adopted stray, she was with us for 5 years. No other owner could have a better dog. She was selfless, loving and positive. She taught us all about life, love and its meaning. Her passing on turned our world into a shade of grey. Westie went into depression for many weeks. We actually had a room reserved specially for both Mindy and her buddy, Westie. My greatest regret was tat Mindy won't b around to laze in the balcony. However, her spirit and love exist in our hearts and we will b bringing her remains with us to the new home.

Westie and Mindy in happier times

Hi Happy Ang,

We plan to shift in late march. Although technically can be earlier looking at the progress, we r not in a rush. Previously, we stayed at 2nd level. So when the time comes for us to find a new house, a high floor was one of our criteria. The view was definitely a bonus. Ya, im sure most ppl worked their assess off in SG except for rich men's kids. I don't belong in that latter category but tats not gonna stop us from enjoying life to the fullest anyway. Cheers!

Hi retchlow,

Ya, agreed fully with u. Dogs r man's best friend. To most ppl, a dog is just a dog. But to a dog, u r everything.

Of cos, different ppl revel in different pleasures; pursue material tings eg watces, cars or like many kids. i think thats perfectly fine whichever rock their boats.

Haha, I think I belong to the category whereby the dogs' love make my life complete too!

lovely dogs you have there. sometimes i feel our lives are more complete because of them & a house is not a home without dogs :)

Agree!!! My dog is my fur kid they are part of the family. Sadly, I have seen alot irresponsible pet owners who abandon their pets when they move to new house. I wonder how could they have the heart ... They have feelings too

:good: well said. I think only pet owners will understand the very special relationship between the pet and its owner. Mindy was sick for 2 days, couldn't eat n drink, vomited and fainting spells before passing on. It was heart wrenching witnessing all these but we have no regrets having her as part of our family. If there is, it was only wishing that we could have met and adopt her much earlier on.

Hi Yun69,

For all the glass work, it was included in the package from my contractor, Benny 9621 1167. You might like to call him to find out more. As for Mindy, I think shes definitely better cos shes in eternal paradise now, haha.
