Renovation - Week 08

Apart from the balcony that was laid with the chengal wood, the work done last week was the sand down and vanishing/lacquering of the parquet in all the bedrooms, plus at the main entrance.

We were not that satisfied with the job.  At certain angles, we could see 'waves'.  Surprisingly, in our conversation with Chiauw, and before we could tell her, she said the same thing too.  She wants the contractor - which we also learned it was Ken's contact, to touch up the problem.

Hopefully, when we go down to the site end of this week, the job is rectified.

Why Parquet?  Basically, we just like wood.  We faced with a lot of headaches choosing for the right wood in the beginning, during the Drawing Board days.  Chiauw introduced us to all the available wood flooring and even took us to the wood factory in Sungei Kadut and some homes to see on the end result.

Finally, we decided on teakwood parquet of 2 x 10".  More of the wood story here - , About Oak, again ..

Some pictures of teakwood in the house:

To introduce wood in the house is also, partly, a geomancy decision.  Wood element represents growth, development and planning.  It is also associated with beginning of new life.  They are not just woods for the element adds life forces to any area in the house.  It is said that wood absorbs chi and helps to redirect it.

And All The Picture
