As you can tell, I'm a big fan of all things bright and airy.. But my hubs is more into scandi-industrial.. So in order to compromise, we are going to change our theme to Scandi- industrial (for kitchen & living area) and scandi designs for all bedrooms!

These recent week, I didn't have much to update as progress is abit slow at the moment.

Basically these are the works done:

  • Aircon Piping,

16782670184_df40f1434b_c.jpg

This is from the MBR. Didn't have much chance to take more pics cause the tilers are waiting for me to be done in order to lay tiles...

I was so worried that the aircon piping will be horrendous.. but to my surprize.. it's actually quite neat! I just need to box up the piping that's under the MBR beam. Going to install the units next week!!

  • Laying of floor tiles

Living Room tiles (Cement screeding look a like)

16782680374_ae071b5167_c.jpg

All bedroom tiles (wood look a like)

Mr E whatapp me that today flooring is all done.. but he didn't send me any photos to show me though. Next up, will be craftstone.

Supposed to start hacking the kitchen wall today however HDB has yet to approved our permit! Haiz. gotta chase them again! =(

Just want to point out a small issue with this type of tap.

Due to the curve design, when after usage and close the tap, the balance water in the curve part will continue to drain out.

Some may find it a nuisance, some may get use to it.

Shoe Rack

17327733098_1be1e045ae_c.jpg

There are quite a few changes to be done on the shoe racks, eg, the ventilation vent to change its color to black etc.. Plus I requested for a suspended shoe rack.. =(

Master bedroom

16895203193_6589cdb69d_z.jpg

Something simple for the bedroom.

Going to inform Mr E on the amendments on the 3D drawings and see how's the final draft going to be like.

So far from my contacts with Mr E & J are quite good.. Just some minor details which they can forget. However I don't blame them as I know they have quite few projects ongoing so I don't expect them to remember everything.

Will share more when its time for carpentry works

Nice clean look! :good:

Ever thought of adding more storage top hung cabinets? You will be surprise the a mount of things/appliances needed in the kitchen.

I see that you have no built in oven but maybe you may have a microwave. Have to ensure counter top cater space for it.

Also not forgetting the num of 3 pin wall plug needed in the kitchen. :)
