Our home [ Renovation]

We have started our renovation around the last week of 2016. Love and I could finally call a place our home where we can start our family and grow old together.

We chose our BTO at Sengkang and it is located just next to the expressway. It may seems to be noisy but we expected the there wouldn't be as many cars at night. We got a high floor and it was pretty good.

Looking inside our home... ...
We took the flooring from HDB for both living room and guests room. Went through 2 times to BSC to file complaints for the hollow tiles, water leakage in the toilet, poor skirting, uneven windows and some other minor defects. After 2-3 weeks of correction, we were more or less satisfied with what we received initially and went ahead with the renvo few days later.  

We chose Darwin Interior as the ID, Danny, did the interior design for Xiong's brother in Punggol. We felt that it was good and so we engaged him for the services. He suggested that we hacked down the kitchen wall and planned to build an island as we wanted something different.

They remove the electricity point from the hacked wall and placed them in another place. 


The washing machine, fridge base are up, together with the sink. They can build really fast and these are done up in a week. In the following week, we engaged external company to build the aircon. They lay the pipes in a way and will come again the 2nd time (near to completion date) to put up the aircons.

Toilet kerb is up too

Once the piping is laid, in the following week itself, the L-box and false ceilings were up too. 

Window grills for our house were also already installed. 

As Chinese New Year is coming, Danny mentions that the renovation will be paused for 2 weeks as most of them will return to their hometown to celebrate their festive. After they return from their holiday, the carpentry works will be up and by then, it should be ready by end March.

Honestly, I am pretty excited to how our new house will be like.  >.< I shall continue to post more of our new house in the coming weeks!
