Renovation Journey : Let’s Get Tough!

As you are reading the previous blog entry, I am already typing the next blog entry! Got to clear my backlogs so that I can start showing lovely photos of my almost completed house with furnitures! :D

So on 12 July, we had our solid top installation. It was actually a pretty fast process where the solid-top guys came down with these pre-cut solid tops and went to the various places in the house to start putting them into place. In just a few minutes, the solid tops were nicely positioned and glued at the side with silicone. The workers then help us to polish our solid tops. But as usual, there will always be some flaws as Feng spotted them and asked our ID to rectify them. :)

Say goodbye to scratch surfaces and hello to smoothies! Presenting our white kitchen! Sort-of. :D

Happy to have the solid top for the breakfast counter so now I can use it with the MacBook Air without making my skin feel scratchy from the woody surface. :D

Solid tops for the bathroom counter-tops! The holes are drilled to the position of our basins and taps by the workers after confirming the position with us. :)

Here’s showing the acrylic board and T5 light used in our bathrooms! We replaced the plastic mesh so as to have a cleaner look in the bathrooms. And as mentioned by our ID, to prevent any creepy crawlies from going in. :X

The T5 lights are actually brighter than our lighting point! Now we used it more often than the light installed. Haha! Luckily we didn’t spend a lot on the light. :)

I guess that’s all for today! Will try to come up with the next set of photos soon! We are reaching the end soooooon! Stay tuned! :D

Renovation Journey : Cold Air Blows + Mirror on the Wall

Somehow starting to think my title doesn’t make much sense anymore. Hahaha! Feel like am getting so random in trying to come up with a more interesting title for the blog entry. :X

Anyway it has once again been some time since the last update. As much as we want to relax, it’s still kind of tough to relax but at least the pace is finally slowing down some for renovation as our house is reaching its completion soon. :)

So here’s some photos from 09 July when we finally have air-conditioner in the house! Photos were already uploaded with the previous blog entry but as usual, I was too lazy to post here since I did my photo blog in my flickr already. Haha! :D

Initially Feng and I were thinking to just get a System-3 for the house. But after much thought and discussion and not forgetting some influence from our buddies, we decided to go with a System-4 instead and we never look back. :D

A System-4 is so good ‘cos most of the time when we go over to our house during the weekends, we are hanging out a lot in the living room so air-conditioner in the living room is definitely a plus point. Not forgetting if we have guests coming over, it will be good to cool them down! :)

Here’s a photo of our model number for our blower unit in the living room and condenser unit. You can probably head over to the following website for more details on the air-conditioner units we got. Take note we didn’t get our units from Cool Serve. That website only serve as a guide to the unit details of the air-conditioner we got. :)

We got our air-conditioner from Kaisoon, which I probably mentioned long time back probably. Their service is really not bad until now and our air-conditioner units have been in good working condition until now. So probably will monitor more before we can give our verdict but up until now all seems fine and we are quite happy with them and their service. :)

Finally time to enjoy nice cool air instead of the warm warm air coming in from outside! Yippee! :D

So after all the air-conditoner units installation was done, it’s time to take some photos of the mirrors that are already installed in the house! Yay! Finally I can make sure I look presentable before leaving the house for ermmm… Feng’s house. :X

Here’s the mirror on the household shelter feature wall. Sexy Feng is ermmm… Probably doing some cleaning? Not sure what he’s doing. Haha! :X

And here’s the mirror on our shoe cabinet. I think I look short and fat here. Oops. :X

And here’s our bathrooms’ mirrors! Nice and big and probably ermmm… Tough to clean off the water stains. Oops. :D

And surprise surprise! There’s actually a full-length mirror in the wardrobe! We didn’t even know that. Haha! The other photo shows my dressing table mirror. ♥

Extras for anyone who is interested, the compartments of our various storage cabinets. The first one showing our very limited storage space in the wardrobe. Due to space constraint, we can only have such a size for our wardrobe. Someone has got to… Sacrifice… :X

Some more storage space in the study room. :)

And our one and only one place with more storage space which is situated in the living/dining area. :)

The next blog entry will come up real soon since it’s gonna be a short one! Stay tuned! :)
