oops, forgot to update earlier

  1. renovation started late Sep
  2. good progress made
  3. site meeting on 5 Oct with ID and carpenter; this was an important phase, as we had to make adjustments on site [e.g. unable to construct top-hung cabinet above kitchen sink area, as there is an access panel nearby, insufficient space remaining near kitchen entrance for proposed tall cabinet; this was initially designed for long items like mops, brooms, vacuum cleaners, etc.]
  4. a few days before vinyl flooring installation, ID messaged me and said previous chosen "model" had some issue, so chose another "model" with similar colour scheme
  5. this week, carpentry and installation of powerpoints & lights, fingers crossed there will be no major hiccups

when the rush is over, will try to document my journey in a wordpress site, currently still #WIP

Hi Hi,

Thanks for the welcome! My bunny hole will be up NE cove of northshore

Don't quite like the layout with the H/S in the centre... wasting a lot of space and the toilet... but what to do... poor bunny haha😪... live do with what I get...

Will be doing vinyl flooring, removing partition wall btw bedroom/living rm and replace with glass swivel sliding door

I like mmoh's window bay idea so doing a similar one there..

toilet: switch the basin/shower areas... exploring to put a corner bath-tub(Everlyn Jacuzzi from singaporebathtubs . com.. anyone use before?) ... if not enough space, may move the wash basin out to kitchen... stlll thinking..😏ns.PNG.45d091cc2eea59eff8b2c5622ba6014d.PNG

I made the kitchen door less wider to a normal door width by installing a false wall.original dimension is very wide entrance.

i put solid pine barn door as the kitchen door. **** heavy by itself but the rolling track helps using it with ease.

2 Reasons y i cover the kitchen is because my neighbor opp can see when i open my main door.I can see theirs too.We are the two only units on the level have such unique '' corner " layout.The rest of the units are facing the corridor.Other reason is i have A/C in the living room.

Flooring is a mix of ceramic tiles for door & kitchen entrance leading to the entrance of bathroom while the rest of the entire unit is vinyl flooring.

Vinyl doesn't sound as hollow and lightly textured according to the wood grain design.

I encountered several issues/problems during renovation like others in this forum.Its really can be a exciting & the same time frustrating experience esp for first timer like myself.

Will post more in future.

Hi, to all, 

Here's my floor plan. 

I do like the squarish kitchen. But I am not accustomed to having the bathroom door in the living room. 

@evozero: I tried balloting for eastlink but obviously I didn't get it, eastlink so much nearer to the canberra mrt, unlike eastcreek at a far flung corner, but I'm still glad to get an unit just that I need to travel a bit more to the mrt station😅

Saw your home pics.  Noticed you have a glass door for your kitchen and a glass corner stall in your bathroom.  May I know your supplier and the cost of these 2 items?  Interested in getting for myself too.  Btw have you moved in?  How is the corner stall working out?  Does it feel crammed?
