Renovation - Week 01B

We were very pleased with the works done by our general contractors.  When we went down to inspect the house last Wednesday (which was the second 'hacking day' allowed by HDB), most of the jobs were completed.  Indeed, it was a 'super fast' job and the place was, surprisingly, orderly. 

Bravo to Chiauw for monitoring. We believe it has to do with her no-nonsence work ethics. In a way, we appreciate it as we seek for smooth renovation.

There were no debris left in the house.  And all the sands and cements were neatly stacked for the next job.

HDB normally only allows a maximum three days to hack.

Some pictures:

Entrance to Dining And Living Areas (View from Kitchen):

We need to get the contractor to remove all the archs and to level the top entrances (Arrow).

Entrance to MBR (View from Living Room):

The contractor is to create a new door for Guest Room (Arrow) and to remove the beam arch.  The store room has been removed to make way for the Walk-in Wardrobe and Study area.

Entrance to MBR Toilet

The contractor is to remove the whole wall (Arrow).

The Stiffener Wall

This is the only wall that HDB gives restriction to our hacking application.  It would be very silly of us to hack this stiffener wall (Arrow) - which is really small, and pay almost a thousand dollars just to engage a Professional Engineer to oversee the work.

Guest Toilet

The contractor is to create a new entrance (Arrow) to the Guest Toilet.
