Reno is going at rocket speed! I haven’t had the chance to update on my aircon stuff which happened just 2 days ago, and today I received images from my ID regarding tilings at my house! 🤯
Shall update when I have the time.. 🤗 #rayxinbox
So on Wednesday, we went down cos the Aircon vendor is coming! We engaged our own cos we decided that ID’s aircon vendor is not worth the money..
Went down earlier cos I was on leave! The electrical works were done a day before! Look at all the dangling wires!
ID doing some math, his assistant is behind the wall on his left! Dno what are they calculating though, I just pace up and down my house cos lemon is not here yet, and aircon vendor isn’t either lol
Hmm MBR works.. I thought we leaving the data cables untouched leh hmmm Raymond ... dno where the data cable went..
Took another photo just in case! Cos we are gonna conceal the points behind the bed’s headboard!
Asked ID to help check out the materials! I heard of cases of aircon vendors using rusted stuff, and I dno how to see if it’s 16mm or not. ID says all is fine! Keke
Insulation? I really don’t know what’s that 😂
Close up! Not rusty! Looks new!
Aircon man came and we walked through where we want the aircon and how it will run..
This is MBR’s. He suggested putting above the toilet door but lemon and I got a Friend that faced issues with the aircon cos after bathing, warm air from the toilet comes out when the toilet door opens.. and the aircon is cold.. so there is condensation etc etc and water started dripping from aircon... so we decided to place it above our MBR door!
Oh ya! I was so happy to spot neighbour at our level! They have onglai at home so it’s a Chinese family!!! Wanted to go say hi so I kept hanging outside my house.. then I realise.. it’s all their Contractors LOLOL!:(
Not sure who is the neighbour on my left tho! Hope they are nice ppl!
Aircon works are done from around 11-3 I think! Lemon went down again later that day to check the works and pass the second payment... but I heard the works are not that ideal... the toilet white casing’s finishing are good, but lemon says that there are holes for the boxes at the MBR wall... which won’t be concealed...
The guy said can touch up the next round though.. actually I think the touch up won’t be nice either lol.. #我知道
MBR.. no choice gotto box up the whole entrance ceiling.. else it’s so ugly >< meh.. don’t rly like the idea of boxing up the entrance tho... cos my current room is like that.. will show later
Toilet’s is okay..
Later that day, ID sent another image! GAS PIPES ARE UP! Good job! Haha
My current room has this cupboard at the entrance.. it makes the entrance super squeezy though.. but it’s better than leaving it open, right? Lol
From entrance of room.. hope my new home’s will not be this low!
Ok! Continue with updates from ID today! So our ID sent us whatsapp asking if we are okay to hack the toilet floor tiles here at the green line, so that the vinyl or wood tiles will cover till there when the door is closed!
Yupp the shaded area will be hacked!
We are fine with it and I Guess it will be done pretty soon! (Or maybe it done already lolol)
My favourite part of the house! HERRINGBONE kitchen wall! Wooohooo! People have their feature wall at the living room, my feature wall is in the kitchen 😂
Wanted herringbone for the whole house initially but it added like 10K to the budget?! Note it’s wood tiles throughout and we changed them all to usual laying, and only living, study area (5 room) and dining area uses tiles. The BRs are all changed to vinyl.
This little bit of herringbone makes me happy 🤓
The herringbone will be up at the black areas!!! OVERLAYYYY 😍
Wondering if my house design will look outdated in 30 years’ time... hope it won’t look too bad by then lol. We intend to stay here till we die. 😅
Master toilet overlay!!! It’s lemon’s toilet so he has full say over it! Although he will ask me for opinions sometimes~ but meh.. not that interested in the toilet lolol
Andddd after awhile, ID sent us this! OUR WOOD TILES ARE HERE YAYYY!!!
And he then sent us another question on WhatsApp, asking if we want to do 90 degrees drop from our front door to the outside corridor, or a slope.
We wanted a slope initially cos imagine if we need to push a stroller next time, or if there are relatives visiting in wheelchair..... (I don’t have for now).. it will be easier to push into the house.
But I also reminded lemon that houses in the past do 90 deg because they keep the dust out! You can see the 门槛 at Temples! Those are for keeping
ID also told us that he did 90 deg for his house, and when Cleaners clean the corridor, the dirty water won’t splash into the house.
So we both decided that the drop will be 90 deg #/tadahhhhh
The amount of details we gotto go into for house reno is mind-blowing lol.
I can imagine getting updates of pictures of the herringbone or floor tiles next week KEKE! Will update then hehe
