hi

PMed.

Hey Freb!

Thanks for sharing your reno journey so far. I'm really enjoying it. :thumbs up:

BTW, could you share with me how to appeal with HDB for the cement screeding? Asking on behalf of my kanchiong neighbours. :)

Hi, can you pm me the price of the HERF that you are paying for? How much psf?

Hi Freb,

I am also a new home owner subjected to the new cement screed rule. Would you be able to share with me the procedure of getting to free Cement screed for my vinyl flooring? Thanks in advanced

got approval from HDB to demolish 2 walls between 3 rooms. contractor cut a rectangular hole for both walls

Reason: new HDB rooms r so tiny, once u place a king or queen size bed, u barely have enough space to walk, adding a TV console for TV will make the situation worst.

however ID came up with a brilliant idea, since we got the middle room as wardrobe room, we will utilise one of the drawer from each side of the wardrobe n make it into tv consoles for both my parents & our room. End result? able to hide the starhub setup box/dvd player/ps4 etc and still have enough space to walk in the room :)

i use OOPS

https://www.oops.sg/price.php

its quite easy to use, set up an account n they give u a nick (Axxxx) + address to key in for taobao. i paid ard $300 for 2.7m3 of stuff including gst. there r cheaper ones (ard $80/m3 exclude GST) out there but takes more effort to use so i just stick to oops. oh and the GST is depending on ur declaration.

2) taobao shopping and key in oops address

It will give u china GZ address. once ur items reached the warehouse, it will be updated on the oops webpage and u can log in under DIY shipping service & declare value n rename the item (u have to tally with ur Taobao shipping number as oops only give it a default name)

Once all ur items arrive at oops warehouse, u can select those u wanna ship n they will measure the items n tell u how many m3 & how much total. U then pay via bank transfer n key in the transaction number into the payment tab in oops.

Once oops verified the payment n the stuff will be on the way to ur house. (Abt 8days)

Do note that oops offer unlimited time & storage in GZ warehouse but not in sg (sea only). I had once stored my item in its warehouse for more than 6 months before shipping.

Once it reach sg they will call u up to arrange delivery. If unable to deliver on agreed date, they might charge $25/m3/day.

So make sure ur at home to receive it.

Happy shopping!
