Hi shiwei71

A little coordination works are required. Cause they are contractors, not much of an ID. But E will give a project timeline at the start of renovation.

So I follow the schedule and ensure that stuffs (eg, toilet accessories, kitchen hob & hood, water heater etc )arrived before the installation date.

I heard from their site supervisor that currently they have quite a number of projects on their hands. Works can be a little slow but it's fine with us as we are not in a hurry to move in.

1 June - 9 June (Progress)

Seems that our renovation is a bit behind schedule.. till date, window grills are not up yet and we are not sure when too? Didn't have the chance to check with Mr J & E as I know that they are pretty busy with other projects. Since I'm not in a hurry so I didn't chase after them.. *quite slack*

Changed the HDB Main Door closer cause it's very irritating that the door is unable to open and stay at 90 degrees and I will have to use chairs and door stopper to hold the door.

So Uniarm come to my rescue!!!

Finally we decided on the water heater and got it install recently. Couldn't really decide whether to install storage / instant water heater.

So we decide that we do not want all these:

1. No more than 10 mins of waiting time for water to heat up

2. Dun wan ugly electrical lines in the toilet.

3. Do no want to install 1 water heater for common toilet & MBR toilet.

So we thought why not Benington Multi point Water Heater. It seems like multipoint water heater is like a hybrid of storage and instant water heater. Now we have hot water in both toilets and sink too.

In case you wonder, I did not get Mr J & E to route another hot water piping for kitchen as I don't think I will require it.

After a longest time.. Mr J's worker help me to patch up and box up the ventilation vent that is facing the kitchen.

This week is a delivery week... most of our furniture and taobao stuffs has arrived. As mention earlier on that our renovations are a little behind schedule so we are kinda of worry that with all the furniture around, J&E's workers will have a tough time when they are about to do the acid wash.

Hope all will turn out fine.

Things that we bought & delivered!

1. Lighting bought from Taobao.

Progress Week (10 Jun - 16 Jun)

This week progress seems quite fast. Carpentry works are up already and lighting has been installed in all 3 bedrooms, passageway and bomb shelter.

Didn't have much pictures to show as J&E workers are doing their works so didn't want to block their way so I just quickly take a few snaps.

Most likely we are going to drop by again at night to check out the lighting and other stuffs.

Kitchen - Cabinet

Previously our breakfast counter partition is up and my hub wants it to be cement screed to match the over all feel. But because of the material, J&E is unable to cement screed so we decided to go with the easy way.

Doors are not up yet when I was taking this picture... Happy to see many shelving to house my shoes!! ^_^v
