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.

What do you mean by topping up of 10cm to the kitchen flooring?

For old 3-NG units, there's a drop of 10cm from the living room the the kitchen, probably to prevent water from overflowing to the living room when doing massive kitchen washing. However, we wanted the kitchen and living to have a level flooring, so we had to "top-up" the floor by 10cm. Previously, the use of foam was allowed, but there was a recent rule change starting that those foam can't be used anymore due to fire safety concerns, so contractors all have to source for alternative fire-resistant material to fill the hole.

Thanks~!

The renovation is finally moving on to carpentry. :sport-smiley-004:

We're going for a raw look for our interior doors... selected Lamitak's Corona Maple.

Hoping that it all goes well with our wood-tile flooring in the rooms.

That's great! It's a decision you won't regret.

Here are our extra large double pocket doors for our study room! Totally digging the raw look...

We are now looking for some vintage looking handles for the doors... does anyone have any idea where to get them in Singapore? :dunno:

Actually, it's still there. In this picture there's one vertical grout line going right through the middle. The picture long tile ago had no grout, so it was obvious then. Our tiler mixed the grout to match the colour of the tiles to achieve a more seamless look, but it's still visible if you see it in real life.

We are finishing up the carpentry and electrical works this week. Last week, while in the middle of carpentry work, our first oven arrived and was installed. It’s a Bosch HBN331E2J built-in oven bought from Harvey Norman some time back. Just a low end model for us to play around, hopefully easy enough to learn a bit of baking and grilling.

You can try looking for the handles on etsy.

Thanks! We actually searched through but we have to work within size and installation constraints and only a few were suitable. Might get it from there if we can't find any that we like in Singapore.
