Day 28- sometimes people may wonder why I go to site everyday. Might be because I am too "niao".

Paritions are up for our study area and play area storage!

Why is the track light installed at wrong position! Didn't follow the drawings I sent them.

Wardrobe track also did not take the centre-line of the entrance.

... and why don't they run the trunking mostly hidden in the partition then come out? that will reduce the unslightly exposed trunking.

went to check out the progress this afternoon. The perfect timing to look see look see without stressing the workers. I think I might had stressed them up on my daily visit. :lol:

Love our island with switches for use of appliances such as kitchen mixer and blender.

going to go very very fast. had not got time to update this blog for a while.

Day 19- swing and slide window installed!

 

20180630_165557.jpg.bb82e8da12009725153932c0b474b95b.jpg

Hi Yokechye, it looks like the individual window pane cannot be pushed all the way to either side of the window frame. There are fixed distances between the windows. I think BestView windows allow you to do that.

Are you planning to install any invisible grille at the window for security?

Hi yokechye, your walk in closet looks really great! Will there be a fan inside for ventilation? With this walk in closet, do you still have space for 2 side tables beside your king bed?

Day 14

Aircon piping completed yesterday evening. Did a good job to flush the box to the beam so that it will look seamless.

20180620_075914.jpg.1386108c1c68ea2df0b2ad50d45256d2.jpg

The kitchen sink was casted to the concrete top today. Great because there is no need to worry about having any rotting plywood top caused by leakage.

20180620_183458.jpg.8fdbe090e4fca96006b2b23a8277393d.jpg

The drywall for the master bedroom walk-in wardrobe was also up.

20180620_183516.jpg.d42962122acfcbdc437af17618d6dfbc.jpg

And finally the toilet floor tiles are in progress. With the U-channel embedded in the floor.

Hi! We installed the Ugate slim profile grilles. mostly for practical reason because it can be used to hang clothes for drying as that window is facing morning sun! The gilles on 3 tracks so therefore when it is fully opened it will sit at the opened window pane position leaving the centre area clear.

There won't be space for 2 side tables but we created a niche in the wardrobe wall for putting stuffs, and we are having bedhead so there's also some space to put stuffs. Our previous house doesn't have much space at the sides and we usually crawl out of bed. 

We provided powerpoints in the wardrobe area in-case we need to put any fan or dehumidifier. Again, our previous home "walk-in" wardrobe doesn't have any fan.

After a holiday break from reno, I shall skip all the progress photos and go straight into the almost completed home.

The completed living room feature wall.

20180728_125816.jpg.b137c7be1bbd23380ae792bef992ffb7.jpg

Our storeroom door seamlessly disappears along the wall.

20180728_125003.jpg.4186f5473cd7e0718218acd679a8cbb0.jpg

 

Had a lengthy talk with the carpenter to do the L-shape slot at the top of the box up for glass installation so that There is no visible u-channel on top. Initially he doesn't want to do it as it is more difficult and takes a longer time to ensure vertical alignment. End result, it is perfect and seamless! nice! If there is a will, there's a way.

20180728_123506.jpg.f3c375f764ed4ee8ce3e24dd8c3f97a9.jpg

Completed Kitchen and installed kompacplus top.

20180728_130500.jpg.07ec38dd33da240efc9ad04711e2f32b.jpg

 

Our cosy corner with lights from taobao. It is soooo much cheaper to get from taobao than in SG. All comes from China too but marked up high in SG.

20180728_125307.jpg.a569b846dc98325186bd888b7850f19a.jpg

 

Our super baby 26" fan from taobao too for the master bedroom dresser area. Can't find this small fan in SG. Wife is loving it!

20180728_125407.jpg.bb8934284c779fe8b3f605cc52832178.jpg

 

And the gate to our home. I forgotten to tell them to install the locking eye lower. :bangwall:

Waiting for more of our taobao stuffs to arrive, including the unit numbers :lol:
