4Rm Resale Hdb Flat - A Bachelor Man Cave (Theme - Minimalist)

Recommended Posts

Renovation Journal (Daily) - Day 42

1st Acid wash for the entire house - finally after like so long... finally the house is clean now for the moment :) Thanks to my cousin for taking these pictures. Am down with a fever and vomiting (stomach flu).......

Btw the wooden main door and gate is not changed yet. It will be the 2nd last items to be changed. Last renovation item for the house will be the curtains and bind :)

I am still going towards my theme of Minimalist / futuristic / modern feel :) At least for now its still looks like it haha

Just got news that the Philips Hue Led lightstip is having a new version called the Lightstrip Plus

This is so much better as it allows user to add additional 1m led track to it up to 10m in total length. And compared to its version 1, the maximum brightness was 120 lumens. The new Lightstrip is 1600 lumens (OMG that is like a projector power) and it has a separate white LED to get the pure white lighting effect. It also has built in sound sensor. :)

Currently it was launched in the US in 8 OCT 2015, waiting for it to be launch in Singapore and Asia.

Sharing this to those people who might be thinking to have cove lighting just as what I have did in my house for the ambient covelight.

For the time being, since I have already DIY my own LED light strip and its bright enough for ambient lighting. I am not in a hurry to get that product, but once it arrived in ASIA or Singapore, I will most prob change to this cause ultimately it will be able to give me a true color range because the LED that Philip lightstrip, it has a additional white led built in.

The RGB 5050 i got only has RGB, and it cannot produce a white color light effectively.

A good sharing tips if its not too much of a hassle.



For me, I took photo of the entire renovation project starting from day 1, I make an effort to go to the house every day, before work and after work, and took photos of the works done for that day. Below is the example of what i meant.



This is before box up and conceal the trunking, luckily I got take photo because I need to install bind for this room and the curtain guys need to know where they can drill and install the bind, if not they might damage the piping and electrical wiring inside the aircon trunking.

This is after the box up of the same location, My ID did not know that I will be putting a bind for the glass panel, and thus he did not place wood inside the ceiling works, with these photos i took, he can easily find an opening and insert the wood inside without guessing where is the previous aircon trucking position was.

I got all the photo starting from Day 1 until now, if next time any defect or issue with the electrical or water piping issue, I can easily refer back to my photos and rectify from there.



I did this all alone as I am single, if you are married, it should be easier for husband and wife to help each other in this matter. Actually doing a renovation is a good tools for couple to know to understand and appreciate each other, there will sure be a lot of bickering and argument but end of the day, the end products will be worth it. :)

Renovation Journal (Daily) - Day 43

Installation of Eubiq track at kitchen and study room. Installation of aircon fancoil and compressor :) Was surprise to get a good news. The Aircon which I previously ordered for the system 3 is 9000 btu for study room, 12000 btu for master bedroom and 18000 btu for living room. However, the aircon guys from all best came and told me that they dont have stock for the 18000 btu fancoil and thus they did a free upgrade for me to the 24000 btu fancoil for my living room. What a nice surprise :)

Wah u really spared no expense!!

You should really be super proud of yourself. :)

First time in my life spending so much money in one short period of time, excluding buying car and bike. But since its going to be a place of my own, really want it to be as cosy as possible. Took very long to save up the money, but to spend it... super fast....

I think with your age and manage to achieve so much, you should be very proud of yourself.

I am sure is all 先苦後甜.

All best is also so good to give you full upgrade, btw bro I am getting Eubiq as well do you deal with their shop directly or you have lobang as well?
