Our main intention is to do up the kitchen and the masterbed room toilet. Our flat didn’t come with doors, we didn’t get it with HDB because we thought we will custom mk it. oh well, now we regret.
Things to be done by other vendors:
1) Install lights at other areas of the house other than the living room. Will get the electrican at lights store to do installation. My dad say cheaper. ID quote me 2.5K for electrial wiring and installation!!!
2) Windown griils. Unexpected item on our list. We didn’t want this to be done BUT my parents insist that it needs to be done since it’s mid-floor. BH say ‘Just do it’ Will do this together with the doors
3) 3 doors for bedroom + 2 Toilet doors. ID quoted $250-300 each door. My dad found cheaper ones for only $150. He kindly want to bring me to the factory.
4) Air-con. We only wanted system 2 ( 1 air con in masterbed room and 1 in living room) My parents say bad idea – mk system 3. I’ll listen to them ,the diff of 1 aircon only about $400
5) Ceiling fan. My parents say better to install ceiling fan though I say whole house will be airconditioned. Because I will be installing ceiling fan, I will need to have false ceiling to mk lights for the living/dining area. Definitely not getting a fan with weird lights attached to it ( OK.. i might change my mind with the false ceiling .. I pray v hard that they have ok looking ceiling fans w lights – need to go shopping soon!!!!)
Things we are giving up:
1) No washer. we will bring clothes home to US to wash or just wash at our family’s place
2) No hecking of wall. Reason is it is NOT cost effective. HDB permit will be needed and will take 2 weeks to approve. Furthermore, more haulage fees!
