Our First Home (By K)

Recommended Posts

We allocated a room solely for our 'walk-in wardrobe' without hacking the wall that is. Engaged another vendor who specialises in walk-in wardrobes, hence it's not under the reno cost by K.

Hi YTMO , that's cool! do share your wiw room! :notti:

Thank you! Quotes may vary on your requirements; size of works and materials selected, hence it's best to have K go down your new place to take a look and give you a proper quote. But for a rough gauge, I spent about 30k inclusive of the following:

1) brick wall

2) 5ft shoes cabinet

3) kitchen cabinets with solid top

4) concrete screed for kitchen walls

5) subway tiles for kitchen walls

6) vanity table + mirror for 2 toilets

7) dresser table + mirror

8) floor tiles for whole house (except kitchen & toilets)

9) plumbing

10) electrical

11) painting

12) 3 room doors

13) windows for service yard

14) honeycomb wall tiles for MBR toilet

15) Glass shower screens for 2 toilets

To be honest, K is not the cheapest contractor around (in fact his cost might be on-par with some IDs) but his workmanship has been pretty good thus far (except for some frustration with the electrician!) and I like that he's easily contactable (if he misses your call, he's sure to call back awhile later!). Plus, his style suits the house theme we are looking for, hence our decision to use him. Hope the above helps :)

Congrats! Your place looks good. Love the brick wall and the carpentry work!

Thank you! The brick wall was a must for me cos I'm not for a feature wall and it'll be too plain in my opinion to keep it as it is! The carpentry works were of satisfactory standard and the wood laminates all turned out well, lucky us we thought! :)

Looking forward to pictures of the completed house!! :good:

Most definitely! Will be sharing more photos on Sat/Sun once few pieces of the furniture are in :)

Hi, Mr K initial payment is higher than any other ID/contractor. Is that any concern? He is one of the contractor shortlisted.

Any advice?

Hi, I didn't have that concern since I thought you've got to trust your contractor when you're entrusting your 'house' to him. And many of the forum-ers had their house done by him (including one of my personal friend). Currently, I've paid 95% of my payment, remaining 5% to be paid to him during handover (everything's done except final touch-ups!), so far so good.

hi im interested in mr K too..dont mind if you can share and pm me his contact and qoutation?

Hi, you can contact Kevin at 90222321 but he's currently on holidays, will be back by 6 Dec. Anyway, I spent roughly 30k. Items as follow:

1) brick wall

2) 5ft shoes cabinet

3) kitchen cabinets with solid top

4) concrete screed for kitchen walls

5) subway tiles for kitchen walls

6) vanity table + mirror for 2 toilets

7) dresser table + mirror

8) floor tiles for whole house (except kitchen & toilets)

9) plumbing

10) electrical

11) painting

12) 3 room doors

13) windows for service yard

14) honeycomb wall tiles for MBR toilet

15) Glass shower screens for 2 toilets
