5A resale flat with a budget (without ID)

Hi Hanna,

Your whole flat has many recess areas under the windows. Do you plan to do built in storage cupboards for these areas? These recess areas are deep enough for suitcases.

Hi KFC1189,

Only the common rooms and study will have built in shelves for my kids books/ plush toys. I dont intend to do for living as my current house do have one but I don’t keep anything inside, so it’s not practical. 

Will just dump suitcases in the storeroom, 2tier shelves.

Think I will ask to add one more railing for each common rooms wardrobe

Kitchen (the best lighting I could get):

I will be doing just bottom kitchen cabinet with L-box downlights. Keeping it simple and clean look. 
*** Remember this - ALWAYS construct cement sink support. 

 

They have cleared all the rubbish to start on false ceiling/ L-box. Was informed ceiling works will take about 2days to complete.

I believe the reno can be completed in a month. So far so good..

Tomorrow I will start choosing toilet doors (SK), study room sliding door and 10feet full height mirror (dining area).

This was taken on 17th march:

Didn’t get to take more pics, hp was out of battery.

Yesterday, contractor update that he spent one whole day cleaning the current tiles before he can overlay the vinyl. Overlay of vinyl should take place today.

I prefer grey vinyl so Hubby chose this colour. He said this is grey where else I don’t see any grey. It looks brown to me.

Contractor cleaned the oily windows too and main door, constructed a beam for my study room sliding door. 

Fans installed.

The tinted full height mirror will only arrive in a week time 

As of now, I should say the reno is 70% complete.

20th march:

Colour of vinyl is okay..., but its still not grey enough

Fans and kitchen light. Over at Tampoi cashier, I’ve already paid for track lights but suddenly this ‘sparkly’ light caught my eyes. So I decided to buy this instead. It comes with 3colours light. Kitchen downlights Will install after my hood is up.

Fans (living and study):

living room fan colour is actually light grey.

If you notice, the fans wiring are sealed behind the ceiling. It’s not approved by hdb standard but I’ll pull my hair if the contractor decline. Die die must follow my instruction.

kitchen no trunking too :)

I will not have a built in tv console. I hate the idea of living with the same thing for 5, 10years later. Just box up the wiring will do (top right pic).

Total cost: $1188!!

Next cheapest quote I received was $1800 (excluding installation). Same material used, only that this seller do not own a shop. So save up on rental fee i suppose..

From sample appointment all the way to installation day, everything went well. Seller was punctual and easy to deal with.

Currently, the living room is in a mess. Still need alot of unpacking to be done.

Stuff we brought over :) We started packing slowly way back in Dec. My hubby doesn’t like the idea doing it last minute.., dump everything in the boxes. He kept stressing out,

”MUST pack NICELY.”

”Group into one box.”

”Label NICELY.”

”MUST wrap ourselves NICELY.” 

Ok lor..
