Our Reno Journey

No prob! i believe some can even do it at no additional cost.. you can try that.. hahaha

Paul is very helpful.. everything will be fine.. jus that things might take some time to reach.. :lol:

anyway, a little update regarding the black lines issue between the laminates.

it looks like my contractor has managed to cover up those line that are exposed..

dont know what they used.. paint or silicon maybe?

there is also a minor flaw for the kitchen door i used..

due to its light weight.. the door will close by itself when the wind blow from my service yard..

mentioned this to my contractor and he said this is why he recommended us to use glass door instead...

however, having said that, he will ask his workers to think of a way to prevent it from closing by itself..

lets see what they can come up with.. hope its not something too ugly..

Please share how your contractor covered up the exposed lines! Really want to find out.. :)

my sink.. hmm.. looks so small after the table top installed..

at first was worried that there isn't enough working space between the sink and the hob...

we over estimate and now really regret not getting the bigger sellena sink..

looks like we will have issue cleaning bigger size cooking utensils :(

Hi Raydon, you got your sink from Sellena taobao? Did the seller take very long to ship out?

Hi Puggy, yes thats right. at first they told me need 2 weeks... but after payment they ship out in 2~3 days..

hi guojiawen, i will go take a closer look over the weekend and share with you.. :)

thanks PTopaz! i guess he is quite good.. everytime there is an issue, he will settle it no questions asked.. (but then again, me and mrs are very easy going...so we didn't 'complain' much..).. haha..

like for this case.. i have no intention to voice it out, since its a norm. but to my surprise the lines were covered up few days after.. not all.. but at least those that are not covered..

lets hope the standard can maintain till the work finish... hahaha..

I think u have a very very good contractor. .. 98.69% (hehe)of the other contractors will tell u that "it's like that one" for the black joint Lines... which is in a way true... at least ur contractor have the pride and bothered to do something for u... kudos to him!

Some of them have little dots of rust at the sink edges.

You can consider to get those SS polish or etc, think it will help and protect it to prevent rust from forming.

Hope this help
