Yes, the sample layout is important as it gives you an idea the positioning.

Yes the screws are long and partially screwed into the ceiling. 

I removed my rack and contractor had to cut away the protruding part of the screw and then patch up to smoothen the ceiling surface.

I just heard one 2 roomer selling his rack at $100+.

Hello @mmoh!

I never thought that the sample layout idea provided by hdb is important, now I know 😅🙄

Oh, the rack can fetch $100+, mmm now I have an idea how much the rack can worth.

Thanks @mmoh for the info on taking down the laundry rack. Sounds like a lot of work to take it down and relocate it. Found a very similar design of this rack on lazada, cost over 500 bucks. Feels like throwing away money if I don't want the rack. 

Hi  @Cranberries,

Nice meeting u neighbour🙂. I wonder if there is any vendor willing to do a trade-in for the laundry rack.

Hello neighbour @Xiaoyang!

Hmm, also hoping to find ways to dispose/trade the rack for good returns 😁

The electronic rack I intend to purchase does provide trade in for $20.

I shall see how, maybe I'll check with my ID to see if he has "lobang" 🙄

my laundry rack is horizontal/parallel to the windows.   I read somewhere that it's quite flimsy and not recommended to keep pulling it down and up?   If I can keep it up and it doesn't block me from installing wall cabinets, i guess i'm happy to keep it.  From the floor plan it looks like it will block though :(  Really, i want to tear my hair out at HDB's design for 2 room flats, especially the kitchen! :(

Thanks Ryanyth for your kind words. I had wanted the stove and sink to be in a row. Looks like cannot. Otherwise, the stove will be too close to living room. Also sequence wise, sink shd b on the left of the stove. Uploaded a pic for all to see.

It won't block the wall cabinet but I think my head will b brushing against the clothes hang on it when I move abt in the kitchen.

Hello to all members here! 

I have been following this forum for 2 years. This is my very first post. 

Expecting my keys this Dec/Jan. 

Location: Eastcreek@Canberra 

Type 2, 47sqm

@studioflatter: Really sorry to hear your horrifying reno experience. Hopefully, everything unpleasant will be over and done with and you can settle down nicely in your new home.

@CaseBlue: I plan to put up insect screen too. Could you share your experience in sourcing for the suitable service provider for insect screen? Thanks in advance!

My reno budget was actually 15k (inclusive of cement screeding) but it went up to 19k because i hacked the wall & dispose the sliding doors and installed full carpentry to include 4 powersockets,ethernet socket in the wall for the tv console and other electronics(router etc) .They are hidden behind flip down panels plus a hidden door to bedroom.TV can actually rotate 360 degrees with a lock for privacy when facing bedroom.

Noticed new layouts for 2-room BTO in the Feb 2020 release. In some cases, it is even possible to have an open concept kitchen and even a study room. Looks like there are more layout possibilities with 2-room flats!

46sqm with second bedroom/dining area/study room

46sqm with a small study/2nd bedroom/dining area

36sqm with open concept kitchen

36sqm with  "railroad style" layout - potentially kitchen+living+bedroom in a single open space

Downsides:

Abit wierd to open the front gate and immediately see the toilet. :huh:
