After waiting for close to 3 months, we finally starting our renovation soon.
We were told that Step one was to buy the aircon and do the trunking before we bring the contractors down for site visits.
Before we did the trunking, my very hardworking Laogong went to do all the measurements of the layout we had in mind and placed the adhesive tapes accordingly.
We did the aircon pipe trunking on last Saturday (19 Mar 2011).
Immediately after we did our aircon trunking, we met two contractors on Sunday (20 Mar 2011) for site visits. I did not expect the sessions to be so exhausting. However, it was a good experience.
We did not waste a second. After the sessions with the contractors, we charged to IKEA to shop for furniture ideas. We saw something we really like the moment we started our rounds.
To ensure that the measurements is correct, we went back to the new house to confirm the measurements and headed back to IKEA to make purchase of these few items - 3 seater cum lounge seater cum footstool + dining table + coffee table.
WooHoo!!! So now we only left with buying a fridge and an oven (gotten a free microwave when purchase my sanyo washer cum dryer :P)!!!
We spoke with another three IDs so far and gotten two unsatisfied quotations. Will do the site visits again tomorrow (26 Mar 2011) and hope to hear good news soon from one or more contractor(s)/ID(s).
Poor Jamie had to tahan the dust and follow us along for all these running. However, she also looked like she enjoyed herself, checking out her new room during each visit ^^
