You can try Legrand, Schneider... many hardware shops do carry these brands.. for those retro old school or industrial theme, MK brand has this silver grey box/panel kind.

Ya...mine is like that kind.

Ahyong, try Choo Chiang, which has a few outlets like near the Rochor police station in little India, or at Kallang/Bendemeer Rd side. Just google them. Mine were bought from there...the silver& black kind. I think if you look at some of my pics in my T-blogs, you can spot them (I didn't specifically take pictures of them). I found the pricing at Choo Chiang very good... But maybe that's cos I bought a lot. You can save about $2-3 per switch at CC, so I saved over $60 :notti:

Its good to have my own house after so called renting for nearly 10 years plus.

I know the feeling bro... I can't wait to turn 35 and to buy my own HDB! hehee.. Instead of spending thousands renting a month, or living under my parents' roof LOL.

Eh you do music too? What kind? I'm looking for someone to collab :jammin: Can PM me a link to your works? Thanks....

Renovation Journal (Daily) - Day 14




Screeding for living room in preparation for the living rooms tiles, however after placing a few of the living room tiles, the tilers told my ID that the tiles i choose might be exposed to scratches if they were to lay the tiles before false ceiling works.



So, the tiles was postpone to be lay after false ceiling works complete.

Hi ahyong,congrats on getting your own house!! Nice design u have! Looking forward to the completion...

3.care to share tips on your choices of ID?

Thank you.

1) The permit was apply via the previous owner agreement to me as well, both of us sign the form to apply the permit. The previous owner as the current owner and I am the new owner after completion date, however the actual hacking was schedule only after the completion date.

2) Out of the 6 IDs that I have approached, only 2 told me that I can shift the WC, the rest all don't even bother to find out and straight say cannot. I have asked around from relatives and friends and they told me it can be done. It just that its harder to do it and i think those IDs or Contractors don't want to have extra work in the future if anything happen, thus they will say cannot be done.....

3) In regards to the IDs or Contractors, maybe later I will type about it once the renovation is completed.

Nope, Just up and down, don't need the push out type, since I have a dryer. :)
