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! :)

Renovation Journey : Woody Wood

Apologies for the lack of updates in the main page for at least one month! We have been really busy with the whole renovation process and I have been staying over at Feng’s house and since editing of photos is only limited to my house hence no updates until now!

Photos were uploaded last week to my flickr so if any one of you need any update, there will be a place to go to! Else you can probably head over to the link: Our Barn located at the bar above for latest update on our progress from Feng. :)

So it was about one week after the lightings were installed, on 7 July, our carpentry works were up~! So here’s a look at our more completed look! :)

On the right is the view from the front door’s point of view while the left shows the carpentry work done at the front door area which includes the shoe cabinet to the left and the household shelter feature wall on the right. The door hiding the household shelter was not up during the time of photo-taking. :)

An overall view of Our Barn from the living/dining room! :)

Our kitchen with the glass divider is finally up and we are so loving it as it allows light to enter from all directions giving the illusion of space for our small house. :)

The table will be our “breakfast” table which will most likely end up putting lots of junk and also the convenience of throwing anything we have on hand on it upon entering the house. :D

Here’s our full-height cabinet/storage space! The only storage space with the most storage area in the Barn! The mirrors on the cabinet was not up at the time of photo-taking. :)

Our TV console and feature wall together with our Ikea pendant light. :)

Our entertainment room! Sort of. Hahaha! We will be having a 32″ TV mounted on the wall and of ‘cos having both our lovely PCs on the study table. This will probably be where we will hang out most of the time considering we used our PCs like 24/7. Oops. :X

Cabinet to the bottom-right is used to house our routers and what-nots inside so as to hide them from view. But both of us think this room will be the messiest no matter how we cable-manage everything. :X

Our Master Bedroom (MBR) wardrobe which both of us and everyone else thinks will never be enough for both of us considering I will be taking up most of the space in the wardrobe. Haha! Guess Feng might force me to do more spring cleaning for my clothes in future to make way for more new clothes. :X

My little corner in the MBR! My dressing table! Feng gave me the freedom to decide the configuration for the dressing table since I will be the one using it most of the time. Mirror was once again not up at the time of photo-taking. :)

Carpentry works in the bathroom! This is a view of our MBR bathroom and the long cabinet will be used to put TWO basins! Influenced by the various resorts we visited, we MUST have two basins. Haha! :D

Remember the laminate trimming that I mentioned previously that both Feng and I hated? Our ID has went ahead to rectify the issue after we raised it to him. He didn’t inform us on the change and didn’t gave us the choice to choose BUT luckily the new trimming fits lovingly so we didn’t blame him. He loves to give us surprises but we both think he is an ID bad for control freaks out there. Haha! :)

Lastly, a view from the walkway. :)

Will post up another series of photos for the next phase soon but I am just too tired to do anything much nowadays. Been having some small hiccups here and there and it was tiring for both of us. Renovation has kind of come to a halt for us already except for some rectifications here and there which can only be done on weekends since we have already locked up the house with our own lock. We both hope that all will go well for the remaining work to be done. We need a good rest before moving on to more plannings for our wedding. Phew.

For more miscellaneous photos from this series, please head over to my flickr. Thanks! Will try to update as and when I can. :)
