meeting with ID soon to finalise all the details before reno starts, decided to save some money and reduce the display cabinet size, also partly because we bought a 2m long dining table :D

if you realise i don have plinth for fridge, partly because our fridge is too tall, its difficult to my wife to reach the top compartment :P another reason is we wouldn wash the kitchen for sure, cos the kitchen is so small, just mop is more than enough... plus new fridge already comes with high footings

met with ID firm manager, he is quite friendly and willing to rectify all defects i highlighted in the MBR bathroom, kerbs, floor tile, etc, especially the feature wall, it will be removed and overlay again at no extra cost (depending on the tiles we chose vs contract quote)

18000450332_f4055a415c_z.jpg

when i asked how come the floor & wall tiles don line up, tiler explained that the water will drain faster as he made use of 4 tiles to form a slope. but i don buy it, i want the line to align nicely..as long as water can drain off. they will redo the floor tile for the bathing area.

17385766943_89cd28f587_z.jpg

regarding the feature wall, he mention that the existing tile i chose have variations and do not have even matching lines, making it difficult for tiler to align perfectly. taking this opportunity, we went hafary and chose another type of tile to make tiler's life easier.

close up look, this Italian tile has interlocks, meaning it will not have problems with vertical alignment, tiler only need to take care of horizontal part. ID highlighted that the area at the bathroom window might not look as neat as tiler needs to trim the "uneven" tiles. we shall see how skilful they are.

18003655035_ca65c34b4a_z.jpg

initially i really wanted them to tear down the wall & reconstruct the way i wanted (manager is willing to, although it makes the tile/wall contractor pretty angry), but he reassure us the work is done with good intention to introduce less joints, dowel bars, mesh & stiffener all added and guarantee years of defect repair for this wall. Having 2nd look at the MBR entrance, it acts as a stiffener to prop against the joint between the 2 bricks they put in, hopefully it might have less problem than i initially thought. i decided to let them off, the wall will not be rebuild.

also discussed on the living room & passageway tile layout, will be looking at the setting out plan before allowing them to start work.

Quite satisfied with today's outcome since they willing to settle all the problems. Hopefully they also understands that we as a client who paid a premium only wish for quality work and peace of mind. Also, we impose no deadline on them, there is no LD, so take as long as they want, just give us quality.

Hi Freb!

Congrats on your new place!

I think I am staying in the same stack as you... haha

Can I also check with you how did you manage to get HDB to do the free screeding for you?

Thanks!
