Hi 2roomers,

Went to see the flat last weekend,here are the raw pics. its 38sqm.
I accidently deleted my toilet pic. its screen grab from HDB but its still accurate except i dont have a sink cos i opt out OCS.
As you can see,need screeding & flooring.

Thnks ryanth!I read your reno journey as well.Really helpful tips to other 2roomers like myself.

There were contractors roaming around the blocks,trying to fish for customers.Are they legal or not I dont know but i was approached by a few that day.

Im gg to use ID company instead.

I need all the luck.hopefully no hiccups & goes smoothly.

Hi! i hope this thread is still active!  i still have a loong wait to collect keys but feeling very excited.

I'm thinking to do very minimal renovation for my Type 1 bto, only the "must-haves". Right now, i'm thinking:

(1) Paint whole house

(2) Install kitchen cabinets, sinks

(3) install curtains, instant water heater, aircon (still deciding between casement or not)

(4) maybe change toilet vanity sink (I've opted for OCS)

Did I miss out anything? Is budget of $3k to $5k possible - i heard it's hard to find contractors to do such small jobs?

very tight budget. there are contractors who loiter at the void deck for new bto and they are willing to do small project such as just kitchen cabinets and sink. 4 years ago i was quoted 3k for just doing the kitchen cabinet for a rough guide. 

1. Painting - u can do it yourself or get a few friends to help out, just buy paint and brushes so this can limit to say $300?

2. Kitchen cabinet + sink - $3k?

3. Curtain - simple diy one you can refer to Ryan's thread. Instant heater < $200 but you may need to pay for installation, aircon if 2 units - $2k

4. HDB one also not that bad lah, I am using HDB one.

thanks for replying! it's not so much the money - it's more like I don't want to deal with the stress and hassle of renovating and checking on ID/contractors.  Just want to keep things simple and save time and energy.  

i think i'll just buy everything from Ikea and ask their contractors to install for me and call it a day LOL 😅

Ikea can customise to your height and length requirement leh, bring your floor plan and consult their ID. Just remember to choose good quality wood, do not use particle wood.
