How much you bought the fino 2, and is it wobbly or hard to install? Looking to buy Fino 2, but dunno will have problem like u faced with the Elmark.

Fino 2 would not wobble i believe. Its a different kind of Fan. The blades are oriented at an angle to the ceiling whereas normal ceiling fans blades are parallel to the ceiling.

I have the Fino1, i believe installation for Fino2 is similar. You wiill need to put 2 holes into the ceiling to mount the bracket. Put in another additional hole for the safety wire. Assemble the stem/motor/blade assembly and hook onto the wall bracket, Wire the power lines up. Slide the cover up to hide the wiring and tighten it, set the blade angle and you are done. Switch power on and play with the remote + enjoy the breeze.

I was really keen to use Kompacplus for kitchen top but had changed because the hubby is sceptical on how Kompacplus will last hence we had decided to use good old granite for kitchen top in the end! I'm happy on the outcome as it gives a nice contrast to the wooden laminates. We choose full black granite without any shiny particles :)

The wrong alignment of the oven had been resolved too and the excess space had been replaced with a pull out pantry which is waiting for the doors to be installed.

Initially we opted for solid top for MBR vanity to save cost but when we went down we saw granite being used :o

After checking with Contractor E he informed that there was some misunderstanding and ask if we can accept it and he will charge us as solid top :D of course we are more than willing to accept this! :dancingqueen:

Do note that Granite though more ex, it is porous. That is one of the reason pple uses solid top in toilets, as it is non-porous, and toilets are less prone to scratches compared to kitchen.

But since yours is black granite, should not have so much of a problem ^^.

Yeap! I hope that if one day the dirt get sucked into the pores of the granite it will not be obvious too since its in black. I don't want to spend all my time cleaning the table top:lol:

Previously I mentioned that the Elmark ceiling fan is too big for the common room that the casement wardrobe cannot be opened properly. The top casement needs to be cut half and let it open from both sides not as nice because of the line in the middle but better than waiting for accident to happen. It's just not possible to remember to off the fan first before opening the shelve.

Thank you!! I love the sliding doors too. Initially was unsure of the doors because they are expensive! Not sure if it will be worth the slurge but luckily it turns out very nice! 

Will be keeping the toilet bowls for now because no more Budget to change them :~ will be changing the toilet seats cover hopefully can beautify the WC a little :rofl:

to confirm:
the cushion you bought from this links come with the cover and cushion together?
the print is only on one side or two side of the cover?

 

Thanks
