We stalled for a few days due to pending HDB permit. Meanwhile, to minimize delays, our contractor proceed with the plastering of the walls and painting the old-based sealer. What hampered our progress was the proposed topping up of 10cm of flooring for our kitchen. Earlier in the week, we got our approval and we finally proceeded with our renovation.

Finally, more work done today... just started tiling the kitchen. We wanted to create a café feel and were deciding between several designs – checkerboard, octagon with dot and mosaic. In the end, we decided on a more uncommon layout known as the hopscotch layout.

We wanted the black dots to be parallel to the sides of our rectangular kitchen. But that depends on the sizes of the two types of tiles and required some trigonometric calculations, which we gladly did. We gave our tiler a ridiculously complicated technical drawing of the laying, which totally confused him. But we did a dry laying of the tiles in the kitchen together with him and he got it eventually (hopefully).

Yes! After 1.5 months, we finally got full HDB approval for all outstanding works. It was a mad rush of activity today and explaining our plan to many people... tiler, plumber, electrician, air-con technicians, carpenters and metalworks guys. An amazing buzz of activity for the entire day with various groups coordinating on how they will do up the intersecting areas. Its finally feeling like things are moving along again!

It's been a while since we last posted. Our painting, plumbing, air-con and gas works have been done. and we are now in the middle of electrical works. Our electrical plan may be a bit complex, but we managed to explain it to our electricians and learned a lot in the process. They have allocated the necessary wires for the lighting points and the wires are now dangling all over the place. They also started to mount the plugs and switches on the walls.

We are going with a mix of PVC trunking and industrial pipes to route our wires. We also have selected industrial plugs and switches to enhance the look. There are some constraints with using pipes, so we had to adapt and adjust our plan according to balance between aesthetics and practicality. Hopefully, the wiring will be done soon and we can move on to more exciting stuff like lighting and carpentry.

Hi, we're not sure about the cost of each switch and their difference with the plastic ones. We are assuming they will be slightly more expensive. If we get a chance to ask our electrician, we'll PM you.

Lovely!

Thanks! :D
