More Carpentry Decisions

Changed my wardrobe abit to cater to the room's structure issue - the 9" protruding part :angry:

I had to sacrifice one 19" compartment initially for clothes to become shelving instead :~ My final wardrobe interior is as below.

Special customistion includes:

1. Pull out compartments for 3rd door (no need to reach all the way to the back for items!)

2. Glass top drawers (copy ikea design :P ) for 4th and 5th door

3. Boxed design for 4th door to hold belts etc

My shoe cabinet drawing was also ready.

Two special customisation done:

1. Small compartment catered to hang long umbrella within the shoe cabinet

2. Drawers below the settee for socks etc

ID also informed yesterday that the company that produces my chosen coloured internal PVC has closed down :o

So got to rechoose from the below options (left is the original, 2 on the right are the ones to choose from).

After some thoughts, thought that it is a blessing in disguise that we get to rechoose the coloured internal PVC, coz theres not brown in our entire house concept (except for the HDB provided doors)!

I asked for grey internal PVC to be in line with my house theme instead. This was what my ID recommended and we went ahead with it. It will be used for our wardrobe + our shoe cabinet.

I believe that is all... unless my ID comes back with more stuff we need to decide on! Otherwise, they are all fabricating at the moment. :wub:

Happy News!

Recently lots of updates on our estate FB group about foreign "opportunists" trying the gates and doors of our estates in attempt to break in and steal stuff (okay this is not the good news). And I brought up this point to hubby, voicing out my concerns..

And then subtly (erm ok, maybe not that subtly) say that digital lock has in built burglar alarm :notti:

So...... he finally allowed the use of digital lock for our home! YAY! :dancingqueen:

I like to think of it that he agreed due to the burglar alarm, but there's also that uneasy feeling that he don't want to be nagged at to hear about the wonders of digital locks for the next 5 years :lol:

But we get to install the digital lock! The simplest model, but that's more than enough for us at the moment. YAY!

nice bro~ anyway... anticipating review on your vacuum cleaner u bought from taobao. As i much as i wanted a roomba, it is way too ex for me.. so looking for alternatives :sport-smiley-018:

I will only get to use it in July, so can only review then :blink:

But price wise, this vacuum which the tb whatsapp chat affectionately named 小白 is definitely alot cheaper :good:

Yeah! ^^

Did we get the same salesperson or city gas is pushing all using macro fe10. The salesperson that attended to me, also recommend the macro fe10 and gave the same reason as low complain rate, so in the end we also go for macro fe10.

I saw your picture, you fixed your macro fe10 near the toliet, but where or how are you going to get the cold water in and hot water out? And how does it link up the hot water to both of the toliet? Actually i am a bit confuse about how they go about delivery the hot water to the whole house.

Haha, maybe it was the same person, or it could be the truth? i was at the Triple One branch, what bout you?

My macro fe10 is on the service yard wall nearer the toilet. Just asked my ID, the water piping won't be up so fast, likely after carpentry is done as I am not overlaying toilet or changing the HDB shower fixture. When it's up I'll post pictures? But I doubt I'll know how they link them up though.. Left it to my ID to coordinate.. :lol:

Hello Le0nHart, I remember you ;)

I'm not using any demo to control my downlights, just the traditional switches..

Are coordinating your own reno? Or you got a contractor?

Hi,

will your "hole" make it difficult for you to change the T5 light?

For my upstairs "milk station" at the foyer, the sides of the top cabinet are slightly longer than the base and these hide the T5 light and casing.

The inside of the top cabinet:

The messy but very useful milk cum computer station where the T5 light is hidden from view.

Hmm, i think the concept is similar, just that your t5 is at the front of the cabinet, but mine is all the way at the back.. The changing of the light is a good point :good:

I will check with my ID so he leaves sufficient space for us to change the tube easily in the future!

Hi Harriette,

If i'm not wrong, my cabinet will have 2 t5 lighting points.

Thanks for the pictures and showing me how it looks! I think our concept is slightly different.. Your t5 is below the cabinet, so there will only be the small internal casing in the back of the cabinet itself.

For mine, my ID will be hiding the t5 light such that it cannot be seen when we look at the cabinet. So the back of the top cabinet will have a hole catered there to house the t5 light. If we look at the top cabinet, the t5 will be hidden from view. That hole will be additional on top of the internal casing, so it will be at least a 2" by 2" uneven pop up inside the back of the top cabinet.. Not sure if I'm describing it well enough?

Btw, your kitchen looks well stocked up, hope you are enjoying your new home :)
