4Rm Bto At The West ~ Humble Nest

Recommended Posts

ok.. its been a while. had some hiccup and arrangement. especially on the false ceiling, it didn't turn out the way i wanted. Should say some miscommunication with my ID. But anyway, ID was kind enough to changed the entire false ceiling and assuring me that its ok and not to worry at all on the costs. maybe a bi delay on the scheduled timing which i totally agree and understand. so next, the false ceiling and painting up!

didnt go for cove, because i dont want insect to live in there and dust can accumulate. next also to save on the costs. regardless, with cove is still nicer. but i dont need it. each to there own preference again.

oh yeah, my aircon is up to. cut a cave at the false ceiling, and stuff it in.

oh yeah~ my hob, hood, oven and 2 x toilet sinks are here~ ID took in the stock for me as i was not available. All in place and in order.

20140517 161023

entire batch above is bought from asiaexcel imm.

1 x hob (RB-3SS GB)


1 x hood (RH-C779-SB)


1 x oven (RBO-5CSI)


2 x toilet sinks (48x48cm)


why rinnai? i trust singapore brand.. wahaha. but anyway, it's still made in china. plus the other brands dont really suit my likings in terms of looks, function, size and feel. i typically chose a further left side burner to cater for big woks or pots.

and why tempered glass hob? initially going for stainless steel, to cut costs and can abuse without fear of cracking and smashing. but surprisingly, the costs difference with tempered glass is too minimal, plus the scratches... can be really really ugly and scary. in the end.. chose tempered glass instead, irregardless, still is nicer.. but cannot abuse it like how you 'teppanyaki' compared to stainless steel ones. treat it with care

service from asiaexcel is so far so good. delivery on promise. and willing to share info and give tips while at shop.

spot checking on weekend.. lets see what i found

grilles are up! and also window for service yard

20140517 161050

living room grilles with my painted walls.. left side in grey

20140517 161035

study room grilles with left side in grey

20140517 161015

master bedroom and grilles with right side in grey

20140517 161006

entire house painting, only 2 colours pure white and light grey

nippon easywash with teflon

and as told by my id.. white is the most difficult to paint. 4 layers needed :jawdrop: . because it's pure white, it have to really cover the base and if slight colour difference, it can be very obvious. but they did it with grace and professionalism. so far so good. only some slight uneven spot and abit of painting gaps between floor tiles & skirting. which i have told my id to touch up. minor issue.. hoping for good results.

i also gotta praise the works on the grilles and window. very well done. thought putting grilles can be like a prison and very depressing. but it looks good surprisingly. just gotta say, i like it. thumbs up. but still.. if i dont have any small kid with me.. i definitely wont put any grilles.. muahahah :sport-smiley-018:

also received advice.. for invisible grilles.. it looks nice. price is somehow same also. but.. it is quite sharp.. and may cut your hands if you are not careful. also heard of birds who accidentally kamikaze in, and got its head chopped off... :jawdrop: i dunno how true.. but i dont wanna try.. ha
