So Far So Good At Foliage [4-Room]

Recommended Posts

Hi There,

I happened to found your thread while searching for barn door hardware. Are you able to help me check with Mr K where did he get the barn door track??

Like you, I am intending to change to a sliding barn door. wonder if I should get from taobao or I could just get it in Singapore, but the search is getting me no where!

Can you please help me to check? Appreciate it!!

by the way, I also bought the rain shower & that light for my house...kekeke

I think this configuration suits my home too...I've never thought about this...only knew about either a system 4 or one system 1 and one system 3... may I know how much was your package with coolforce?

Hi I'm looking at a similar configuration as well. Can I also please find out what was your package with coolforce? Thanks much!

Hi readers,

Sorry for the lack of updates due to welcoming small little one just after the reno. In fact we have yet to do some minor finishing touches for our new home and our little one is on the way and there are certain reno works which we could not do. Here are somethings which we quietly did.

This shall also end my of my tblog to record down the journey of my renovation. Thank you readers for staying by my tblog on the updates.

Recapping my Living Room

10354173_10153345197914546_4720245518699

We went to Mr K's carpenter and added a aluminium frame cover for our tv console as our little one will be out and would not want her to be meddling with the things inside the tv console. (advise to do a covered tv console right from the start) :good:

We mounted our TV to clear space on the surface of the TV console. Gotten a metal pipe to hide all the unglam wires and wirings. :D

Not sure if this have been shared, our messy Common bathroom. Mirror are from ikea which were good to place some of our toiletries.

Nothing much was done for our bathrooms as we thought that since HDB have provided with a useable bathroom thus we could retain its original state only changing the rain shower head, adding the rain shower head, adding the pendant lights and changing the bathroom door to a barn door.

However after using for a period of time we realised we should have changed the floor tile and probably could make the wall tiles nicer other than that the bathroom looks pretty plain.

Our Messy MBR Bathroom with Ikea mirror to place our toiletries too.

Finally Master Bedroom. We did the bay window and tv cabinet at the corner. We might be mounting the 32inch tv at the later stage when after our newborn arrive.

We also had the 2 bedside table.

1901506_10153345348049546_10940653126453

As you can also see, our blocks are closely build to one another so we had a blackout solar film in our MBR. Do look for Joey 91088003 and quote Sharon from Fernvale to get solar film price. :D

1011279_10153345348024546_12035342679491

What is left is the aircon ledge window which we have yet to install the blinder and only merely using an ugly towel to cover it up as we cant drill holes into the MBR at the moment. We bought a ikea roller blind which can nicely cover the aircon ledge window.

10458487_10153345347894546_7004592481066

As you can see, due to fengshui reasons, the ceiling fan is not located in the centre of the room or centre of the bed, it is purposely flushed to the side of the room.

Last but not least ..... The WIW (walk in waredrobe)

10383991_10153345382429546_7714530337445

As you can see our walk in waredrobe is located right in front of the MBR toilet which we make used of the study room space to have our mini walk in waredrobe.

Sorry but i just realised i had missed out the study room which is located beside the nursery.

Here is the entrance of the study room, the entrance is pretty small as the corner on the right have been used for our WIW

10502044_10153345349584546_9973058230605

However when we walk in, we still have a small cosy study corner which is sufficient for a super single bed in the future if we would like to convert to another bedroom. While the WIW we could split half of the WIW to open on this side for waredrobe in this room.

Hi all,

Sincerely sorry for the much late reply, i believe most have started or almost completing with the renovation works but will still answer the questions nevertheless.

Hi, saw your antique rain shower head from taobao and love it!!! But my dad bought a tap from china before n after installing, water came out yellowish cos metal started rusting! So bit worried. You've been using the shower for some time now? How is it?

Hi Gako, mine did not come out yellowish, my rain shower tap is actually copper bronze material. I have been using it for almost 10 months since we moved in and its still good so far. :good:

Hi I'm looking at a similar configuration as well. Can I also please find out what was your package with coolforce? Thanks much!

Hi Bibliokitty, mine was a special package with coolforce as my configuration would require 2 compressor which usually others would only require a system 4. As my hb was greedy and ambitious thus he wanted to have a much cooler room for a 4-room. Our BTU was much higher as well, for our exact configuration could look for Cynthia at coolforce and mentioned Sharon and Alan, she would know and could advise you on the configuration. We paid about 5.5k +/- for the package. :D

Hi There,

I happened to found your thread while searching for barn door hardware. Are you able to help me check with Mr K where did he get the barn door track??

Like you, I am intending to change to a sliding barn door. wonder if I should get from taobao or I could just get it in Singapore, but the search is getting me no where!

Can you please help me to check? Appreciate it!!

by the way, I also bought the rain shower & that light for my house...kekeke

Hi chewthegum,

The barn door and barn door upper track was done by Mr K sub contractor who is doing carpentry for him. If you would like to know exactly which barn door track, you could ask Mr K carpenter's Ah Zhuan to do it for you. Its very difficult to get it from taobao as you might not be sure it could fit the barn door well. Best to get the carpenter to do the barn door with the track for you. :D

Hi,

May I know what is the name of the colour of your flooring? Is it herf from evorich?

Thank you!

Hi lovinhearts,

Sorry for the late reply. The herf is from evorich which i think i remember it was durban oak. I did mentioned in my previous post before. :D

Hi Sharon,

Great house you got there.

We are having almost the same floor plan, except for the kitchen entrance. We were advised against having 2 A/c multiplied units in your apt. Do you still have your trunking and water pipes plans for the A/c lying around so that I can referenced it?

Cheers..

Hi ihheng,

Sorry for the late reply again. Thanks for dropping by my tblog. Sorry to mentioned but i do not have the aircon trunking and water pipes plan for a/c as it was agreed on with the aircon installers upon our first meetup and installation. Basically we routed from outside the aircon ledge up to near ceiling and into our MBR and passes by on top of our MBR's bathroom and along the corridor and finally ends in the living room. Hopes it helps even though it might be late.

Hello where did u get the toilet paper holder with a face :) so cute

Hi bianzi,

Sorry for the late reply, the toilet paper holder with a face is bought from taobao, chanced upon that in taobao.

What is the material of your brick wall for living room?

Hi,

I am not sure what is the material for brick wall, its the same brick wall which you will find from Hafary. :D

You are better with other brands offering vinyl if they cant offer $6 psf.

I choose Krono, compared both Evo and Krono, look similar, or matter of fact same under the untrained eye.

In the end, I'd saved $1 psf. If there is 1000sf means a $1k saving.

Thanks Ocean Eleven for helping to answer some of my abandon queries in my t-blog.

Sorry to poke my head in here, just happened to be reading... :P

I think it is one password entry for each door, not individual passwords. [Mine is like this, so is my sister's. We both got Samsung locks, different model though]

Depending on your lock model. If it has fingerprint recording function, then of course have to register each individual fingerprint and it will be different for everyone.

Some locks come with RFID card, again have to register the cards on the lock and it will then be different for each individual holding the card.

If battery is flat and you are outside the house, there is an option to charge the battery from the outside. was told need a 9V battery. For the model I bought, there is an additional physical (manual) key overwrite as well.

Hi koori,

Thanks for clarifying while i was away. :D

Does the whole family use the same password code for entry to door or each individual can use different password lol? What happens if the battery is flat and you can't key in password to enter the house? What is the alternative?

Tks!

Yes, its only one password for each door and can use multiple rfid though. For my case i place a spare battery outside of my house, its actually sits on the metal case box to cover the back of the metal gate lock. So once its flat i could use that battery. Otherwise, you could change the battery every once a year to be safe, so far been using it for 10 months and there is no need to change battery yet. :D

Dear Sharon

Can you please post some close up pictures of your HERF edge against the wall (Width side of the plank against the wall.)

Was it kept tight against the wall? or you see 3mm gap?

Was the gap parallel again the wall? Mine was looking like below. 50% are all looking like that. Even though I have pasted my walls.

Did the gap expand after your installation?

I like to see the workmanship of goodrich. I brought mine from Evorich direct with their installation. I have requested Evorich rectify this weekend. Hopefully no lame excuse from Evorich..

Hi,

I have got it from evorich as well and there was some minor gap but they use the sillicon to cover the corner. It is a must to cover the edges to seal up. I did not take photos of the HERF before they apply sillicon but after they apply the sillicon it was fine.
