btw, there is an online quotation on their website, so you can agar agar know how much they are charging instantly. Mike is the salesperson attend to me. I have been their "maintenance service" customer for the last 5 years for my existing house (my family sign yearly contract with this company to maintain our existing system 4). So far, we are very please with their service... they are really professional and not those who will "anyhow katok people" type. That's why I did not look for other company when I need to install my new house's aircon, just go straight to them
... If u really interested to get aircon from them, ask for Mike (the sales person) and tell him Shirley Tan from Blk 199B Punggol Field recommend. I have 2 colleague who are looking for aircon and he said if they quote my name, he will try to give some discount (haa don't know real or not, but no harm asking).
I don't have studyroom leh. My feng shui master said "your MBR is suitable for your son, not suitable for you, so u got to swap room with your son"
.... and this study table is in MBR because this is my son's "wen chang" position (this position for him to study well).... so you see lah, all my investment in my son's room liao ... and he is only ... er 4 YEARS OLD!
Thanks for your compliments. I think overall I should be paying Patrick around $18K. Mine is a new standard 5 room flat.
I did the following :
- floor tilings (living, dining, 3 bedroom, bomb shelter, kitchen and 2 toilets overlay)
- aluminium window grills
- concrete sink area
- kitchen cabinet
- simple horizontal shelving for 2 bedrooms
- L-shape study table
- shelve partition in front of main door
- whole house painting
- glass screen shower
- glass door for kitchen
- others (labour fee for installing some small items, eg. sanitary ware, etc)
Note that I did not do the following :
- no ceiling work (no L-box/false ceiling or cornices)
- no electricity work (except for 2-3 power point I ask Patrick to reposition).
- no builtin wardrobe (buying from outside, cheaper)
$18k for 5rm reno is v worth. my MBR is also use for study rm as i don't like to sleep near the toilet where the noise of the flushing water fm upper units. so we chosen the room opposite the MBR as our main bedrm, we create a passwage way thru a walk-in wardrobe.
sorry for not able to drop by your place on saturday..was busy..dropped by our place though, patrick already hacked 2 of the walls and they are starting tiling today..normally how long does it take to complete the tiling? since we didn't request anyone special, the tiling should be quite fast right?
your house looks lovely rockbaby..may i know how much does patrick charge for those shelves ledge? thot of doing some for my 2nd bedroom..
my reno is around 33k, not a final one yet..includes home for all rooms, overlay for master room's bathroom, L-shape study table and shelves for study room, WIW and 1 wardrobe, tv console, L-box and false ceiling, divider, shoe cabinet and kitchen cabinets..too much of carpentry, that's why ex..
gals, any contacts for curtains?
sunsetbay, how much is your WIW? mine around 3k..is it expensive?
no problem. The tilings normally take 2-3 weeks.
It cost $300 to do the 4 piece of shelving at my window area.
I just placed a $100 for curtain deposit yesterday! There is this mini product fair outside Hougang Mall and there is a booth inside that showcase some curtains and binds. I talk to the boss and saw his curtain cloth sample and like it a lot. Most important, it is not expensive (I think). eg. roller bind (using the pulley method) cost around $130 for 2 panel of windows. For 4 panel window long curtain with quite nice curtain cloth, it cost $200+. If u choose those silky type of material, it will cost around $300+. I just paid a $100 deposit and will ask them to come to my house and do the measurement and choosing of material, after my renovation is done.

shuhann, my WIW is ard $2k+. initially we want to buy ready made cabinate fm furniture shop but the cost of it is abt $1k+, so we opt for WIW which is bigger. how big is ur WIW? $3k must be bigger than mine.
thanks rockbaby..will compare a few quotation for the curtains..one of them quote us around 1.3k to 1.5k..am still waiting for his final quote..doing curtains for living and dining and roller blinds for 3 bedrooms..
mine is 13ft L-shape WIW ($1950) plus 10ft L-shape feature wall with revolving door ($1500)..total $3450
very ex hor..is mine really bigger than yours? from the drawing, urs is not a L-shape? can your wardrobe be open both side?
did you chose the colours yourself? may i know the total cost for your house curtains? btw, we haven't met Malcom yet till today..patrick said don't need to meet him, he will liase with Malcom..did all of you met up Malcom? how come we don't need to?
sunsetbay, yeap, i saw the sliding door..that means your wardrobe is both side, one facing computer table and one the passageway?
me need a big wardrobe coz hubby got so much of clothes, more than me, can u believe that? he is a shopping freak..hehe
will take pic of my place including the wardrobe with the revolving door
patrick did it before for one house..hubby like that idea very much but me prefer sliding door, so in the end give in to him..something different though..
ya, my WIW is both sides can walk in, more convenient to goto the bathroom & the study room will also able to share the bathroom. initially we thought of having the WIW extended to the bathroom but as u know, toilet is an moisture area, we don't want the clothes to get mouldy so easily.
ohyeah, i rembr my MC package comes with two barrels of beers. the manager notified us that the beer is finishing within half hour. no choice but to open anthr two barrels.
hee.. anyway, it's once a lifetime. can recovered fm angbao one. mine also wkday, our liquor & wine consumption is mre than $2k! but in-law sponsored the liquor/ wine (fm outsider supplier).
my main bedroom area is ok, not really big but spacious enuff cos there's no wardrobe. we put two side drawers on the sides (advised by the feng shui master). a small tv on the corner which we seldom watch.
Din know that your wed was also at MC? When's your wed? Over already or nearing? We just had ours on the 20th May. MC offered us 30L complimentry though with extra 20L if we can hit 45 tables. But we managed to bargain for a good no. of wine bottles corkage waiver. Andy was really good to us... We also managed to upgrade our wed suite to their presidential suite. U wan to see our Wed photos link? Can send them to you too...:>
we met him the night he is attending your wedding..yeap, ours will be in MC too..the beer they offered you the same as ours too..but we can't hit 45..did you ordered extra beer aside from the 20L complimentary? if yes, how much more and how much u spent on the beer? may i know how much wine corkage Andy gave you? my coordinator was jennifer, she has left, so now not sure who is our coordinator..we got waived of 1 wine corkage for each table and we trade of the complimentary tea voucher for another 6/7 bottles..how about u? hmm..must try to upgrade our suite too
btw, how's andy? how's his service? were he there on your wedding night? i saw from the forum, his service is quite bad..
you've sent me your wedding link bearyhugs
i asked from you from the GHA link..you may have forgotten..but it's alright..your photos are lovely..your wedding gown are so sweet
likewise your evening gown
me signed up with GHA too..PS will be end of next month..me haven't started anything on wedding preparation..more excited about the house..how was your honeymoon in Bali?
went up to my place to look last night..the wiring is done..the master bedroom's bathroom tiles are up except for flooring..same goes to the bomb shelter tiles..
btw, did you gals noticed that patrick conceals the wiring under the floor tiles? this is the first time i got to know that they can actually do that..just wondering, if the wires spoilt, does that mean they have to hack the flooring to change the wires? isn't that cumbersome?
v strange to conceal wiring under floor tiles. perhaps u wanna ask patrick to clear ur doubt. my thinking is, if the wiring spoilt, u hv to lay a new trunking on the wall & leave the wiring on the floor permanently.
yeah, you are right..will check with patrick..actually we want a power point on the corridor wall, therefore from what i noticed, patrick lay the wire from our master bedroom's socket to that corridor wall point..abit difficult to explain..trying to make an appointment to see him tis saturday to clarify a few things..
