My Humble Abode (Without Id)

Recommended Posts

Thanks neighbour! Anyway read about your experience with the hdb screening. It kinda seems like ah kwang(guang) is the contractor for fvrg. So, fingers crossed for my screening... did J/E suggested for any self levelling screening to smooth e floor?

Hi shiwei71,

Yeah he is... J+E did suggest self leveling screeding but the height of the screed cannot be changed anymore since it was already done, and it was the highest that they can go already. Plus, self leveling cement is very expensive! :jawdrop: hahaha! (:

hi neighbor, can i know where you got yr tracking light from? taobao or local? thanks

Hi forkel,

We did buy track lights from Taobao but the track seems very flimsy. My contractors and even the electrician suggested that I don't use Taobao for electrical items that will be fixed permanently. Another owner used taobao, and not even one month after the renovation, the lights started to flicker. He even had a video to show me... At first we were very skeptical... Maybe he wanted to introduce us some local shop and earn our commission.

But he didn't. He didn't even have any shop to recommend but he just suggested that we don't get lights from Taobao!

So... to answer your question, we got it from a local shop (:

Letting go of these D91529 porcelain tiles (150mm x 900mm) at $1.50 psf. Approx 5.8sqf (4 tiles) left! This tile is one of the best thing that happened to me. It really looks like wood. In fact, my MIL came and asked us why we use wood for kitchen flooring and toilet feature floor.

UPDATE: SOLD.

You can use it for your toilet as a feature wall or floor. It's really the best thing ever! (:

Ignore the ugly feet :sport-smiley-018: Italian tiles, Fiordo Marendo (300 x 600mm), letting it go at $2 psf. :notti: Approx 28 sqf! (14 tiles left) left!

Matt black Native Stone Italian tiles (300mm x 600mm), letting it go at $2. My favorite tiles because they are matt!! ((: Maybe that's why I bought too many... approx. 79.8 sqf (41 Tiles) left. My employer bought some of this tiles and used it in our centre's toilet as flooring! Works well if you have ventilation. If not, I find it abit slippery.

Common toilet wall tiles... I don't like this the most :no: . But this is my husband's favourite! Hahaha. Our most expensive tile - Mikonos Italian Tile 300 x 600MM. Letting it go at $3. Approx 19 sqf left (10 Tiles).

We also have two doors, so neighbors, if you want them, do contact me! (:

What matters is the end product must make you happy. At least you know why you went broke for :)

Since it's going to be your own home you want it to be the best you can allow it to be.

Hi shiwei71,

Hi vincentwt,

Yes he is very shady. He refused to put his name or anything on the receipt/invoice issued to us. PM-ed you the supervisor's contact. He is the highest you can go already! I really hope it will be a smooth floor rendering for it. It gave us a lot of headache.
