Morning sunnnnnnn! This is a #throwback post cos I got some free time! Keke

So we met our ID and electrician on 26th Jan for electrical works! Too many decisions to make 😂 and even though we had discussed a few days before at my ID’s office, we had to walk it through with the electrician as well!

ID and electrician came and started the walk-through!

ID has an assistant as well!! Up till now I don’t rmbr her name >< oops!

Anyway, so everything was Super prompt! After our discussion, the electrician (young guy) video called someone and told the person what are the light points etc. and TADAHHHHH later in the afternoon, the quotes came!!

But it was beyond Budget >< ID told us that we typically need 1-2K for 5-room works, but for the amount of work we want to be done, the quote was 2.6K!

Nope! Got no money for that! Decided to not shift the data point in MBR (just conceal behind the headboard that runs the length of the MBR), took out a few points in kitchen, and removed one of the wardrobe light point (light switch) and just use one of it. I think there were a few more but I can’t rmbr already!

Oh we had this discussion a week later at my ID’s! So it was 30th Jan, after work! I like how my ID is so on the ball (for now hahaha)

And we were also waiting for BSC’s joint inspection for defects on 4th Feb, which was CNY eve!
By the way, rmbr to check the bottom of your doors! Our ID realised tt the bottom of our doors are “raw”. That is, like wood shavings, not laminated. This is for ALL doors, 3 bedroom, and 2 toilets. Now u know why some people has mushrooms growing on their toilet doors lol. BSC supervisor said he will fix it tho! But he everything also ok, makes me wonder if it will really be done #/cynicalsingaporean

Hehe IG story from that day! @raymondnjy met me straight at #rayxinbox cos he gotto travel down from office!! So I was alone for awhile and sat at the end of my living room (aka the study area) and took a video of this space that we will call home in a few months ☺️💕

After the BSC inspection, we went over for CNY reunion at @raymondnjy Uncle place! I also messaged ID regarding the estimated time of completion for the defects cos he wanted to submit the permit to hack the walls!

Oh, the luggage is there cos we dabao-ed everything and went to stay over at Raymond bro’s house! At the request of my MIL! ☺️

I’m not staying at my empty #rayxinbox of course! Hahahaha

Anyway! Will update again soon on reno!!! Can’t wait for ID to come back from his break! Oh we also made our second payment to ID after confirming the reno works! ☺️ can’t wait !!!

sushiwatti Hmmm~ actually I think 2k is quite reasonable for electric works? I frequently see quotes around 2 to 3k for 3 room flats! Or maybe cause mine is a complete rewiring?

wennnxin @sushiwatti mello! It’s good! :) Raymond is very proactive! An example is he promised to submit docs for license to hack walls or smth on 11th Jan and he really followed up on it and updated us on 11th Jan (think he was still on CNY leave).

For top-ups.. no leh.. he is transparent on the pricing! Our quote increased after we signed cos my husb and I changed some stuff.. like we decided to hack the MBR wall.. initially was just a wardrobe in the room.. so the cost for hacking increased the price! And we added 300 dollars for sealant (we asked for it he didn’t hard-sell).

The whole experience is quite good till now! We gonna start reno next week, will see how it goes! I would say he seems quite good in project management :)

I’m not too sure if he is senior designer or not though! Maybe you wanna meet him and see if you and your hubby clique w him or not! My husb and I felt tt he is the one for us cos he seems sincere and transparent and willing to hear us out from the start :) depends on what you want :)!
