It has been a month since we submitted the defect list so I thought it’s time to check on the progress again today… Was hoping they could deliver within a month as promise but looking at the progress, I think they need another week or two.. They did fixed those leaking part though, but still need to check again later…
Almost got a heart attack when I saw this
The way they lay the wood and with nail all over…. That is bad workmanship to me 😦 OMG!!! I hope it wouldn’t be like this when it is totally fix!!!
My contractor told me that some not so obvious defect are better left at it is as it might get even worse after the fix… I kind of agree now… Some of the wall tiles they replaced has some ugly stain-marks on it 😦 Although it’s still a little too early to judge but I don’t have good feeling that I will be satisfied when they handover back to me…. I’ll keep my finger crossed and pray~~~
So, we kind of secured the contractor for wet work, grill, plaster ceiling and wiring job… Will get them to send the final quotation when the defect is all fixed…
Also went to check on the plan submission for renovation work and sigh~~~ every single little things is $$$$…. The approval sticker + plan + deposit for the big rubbish bin is almost 1.5k 😮 One air-con and one water heater gone….
Still waiting the quotation for kitchen cabinet, cupboard and tv cabinet. Hopefully they come back with good price and of coz good quality….
There are so many things to learn from owning a house.. What material to use, how the wiring should be, where to put the lights and so on was quite fun actually but of coz there are times when we argue too… I want like this.. No!! It should be like this….. No!!!! But nothing beat the master of all scare – the figures of renovating this, installing that and extending there… Looking at the amount for changing this and that really scare the hell out of us… Actually me mostly :p The Mr. still looking very steady there… It swallow up most of our savings but but….. It’s our home sweet home… Our love nest.. I wanted it to be nice and comfortable… On one hand we wanted to do a big reno but on the other hand, we do not want to clear up all our savings.. Dilemma dilemma… I’ve been trying to make friend with mr.calculator but think he hate me lots… Kept showing a very high figure… Pfftt… I think I need to have a deep talk with him again :p
Until then, hopefully everything will fall into places… There are still many more things to finalize on but that will be another story… Can’t wait for the reno to start… Bcoz it means we are one step closer to staying in 🙂
