Day 6 – Rest Day

5 days of renovations complete. Today is a rest day. Considering they only work from 9am to 4pm everyday, they’ve progressed quite well. The place looks bare and they’ve done 80% of the electrical wiring.

I can’t wait till tiling commences sometime next week because we can see if what we picked actually looks nice! :-/

Bright and Cheery

I was browsing through Apartment Therapy, keenly checking out a new post on an apartment makeover. I love the whole look of this place and their furniture pieces are incredible!  If I was living alone I’d definitely go for this look. I was also very excited to see that the featured a dining table looks just like the one we bought! These ladies’ table looks extendible and the chairs are a bit different. Nevertheless I take it as an approval of my good taste! Check it out here 🙂

Day 4

I dropped by in the morning to speak to the electrician who’s starting his work today. Somehow the condo feels smaller after much hacking, but it’s probably because things are all over the place and it looks cluttered.

Most of the tiles are gone, except some of the kitchen wall tiles. They’ve knocked down the small bit of wall as well to center the doorway to the yard.


All built-ins have been removed. The rest of today will be spent clearing up rubble and wiring up the house. Here are more before and afters:

Tiling work will commence next week.

Day 1

We went over to the condo to be kaypoh and check out what the workers had done so far. Surprised to see they’d done more than I expected. Quite a lot of stuff has been hacked out. Our kitchen looks like a tornado tore through it, and the common bathroom looks sadly bare.
