Recommended Posts

Hi all! After roaming renotalk t-blog for so long, it's time for some contribution. Like everyone else, after years of waiting, i finally got my keys. Below will be my floor plan:

ID selection is really not easy, took me 6 months to confirm one. So far these are the ID i have approached and my very honest opinion, luckily the harassment law has come into place, so i'm not afraid to give honest comments as i understand from friends and forummers, ID who cannot accept comments in the end called homeowners and even ended up at their house. Good ID should receive praises likewise bad ID should really look to improve.

K*l**d* spamming ID firm - Sent my requirements, got back to me within a week. Met up once to talk more in details. This lady Michelle went into details, material advise, open for ideas and my needs. So far a very good experience. Was told to wait for second quotation but in the end no news... maybe too busy or something.

Living Art - Thomas got back to me very fast, always following up on my decision and if pricing is ok. Very sincere guy. Would've engaged him but i was piled with quotations, my work and personal issues. Even though read his quotation a few times, it just didnt get into my brain.. too much distractions

WaWe Design - No news

Behome - No news

9 degrees - Sent my enquiry and no news. Only after 1 month later where i asked about it, they missed my email. But otherwise, realizing that, they manage to work something out very quickly and fast... even at 12am midnight. Very dedicated and sincere. But it came too late.

Earth Living - Oh no.. still gives me the creeps. For them i have to apologize, i apologize that my budget cannot meet your demands so that after meeting a few times you can never remember me. I also apologize that every needs, questions and request i have raised up are so silly that you always laughed sarcastically at. I also understand that you do not do onsite visit and can design, draw and renovate everything with your imagination which i have to not only respect but in no way i can negotiate, give my idea or say no to whatever u want. :angry2:

Triple S - First to get to me. Very fast quotation and sincere approach. Able to give ideas, material to use, assurance and very attentive. Gave a lot of creative ideas which is sure to burst my budget.

In the end, i chose triple S as my ID. Anderson is my ID in contact. Reason: Very sincere, open to discussion. Even though it over my budget, i know that i am willing to fork out more for their assurance and attentiveness. While i'm not a demanding person, i still hadnt made up my mind on few details. So during discussion with them, they actually re-quoted me 6 times! :jawdrop: But, they always did it with a smile. Give ideas relentlessly, on the design, practicality and material. As i'm writing this, renovation is ongoing for the 1st week already. So far so good. Let's see how he fared on the design then. 3D design coming up next!

I told my ID i would do a tblog in renotalk. which i was very straightforward too, if he does a good job, i will say good and recommend, if bad job, i will be very straightforward too. Once i signed the paper, i will give my trust, once break it.. i can be a pest. :bleah:

Thats all. Wanted to do toilets, but not enough money already, plus cannot hack the tiles. If overlay, i fear of water accumulate underneath and tiles will drop off easy. so toilet is just the usual top and bottom vanity with tempered glass shower screen

sadly, after that everything came to a halt, because the aircon was arranged too last min and couldnt accomodate to our timing. only after aircon piping is up, then painting can start.... oh well.
