I am still takin my time to view through the quotation and materials for the things i wanna do.. man, many things need to check.. cause somethings are too expensive.. here are the main items i m searchiing for alternate
1. Glass Roof Top to cover the Airwell- One fella quoted me RM14k
2. Wood floor on Courtyard, Terrace, Part of front terrace- the fella quote me RM23k using chengai wood, looking for alternative like Balau
3. Masterbathroom enlarge and change one whole wall to Glass panel- RM18k excluding piping and fitting (bathtub, basing, tap, rainshower)
4. Masterbedroom Walk in wardrobe- Patition quoted RM11k, Wardrobe another RM9k
5. Electrical jobs plus aircon piping - RM18k!!!! Fainting..
These are those main items i m looking for alternative contractors and material, rest not much issues... wish me luck getting closer to my dream home.
Of course the cheap one maybe engage one do the flooring and wall tile, another one for electrical , another one for ceiling... that needs a lot of time and coordination.
Also workmanship is a concern.. can not settle with 10% cheaper but crap job.
You have anyone to recommend that can do all these with much cheaper price?
Its better to discuss renovations/contractors over at this thread. So that its easier for us the search when we need the info.
Despite being a SPR, I am glad that you are not blind to the challenges that Singaporeans face and also not beholden to the establishment who has gifted you the status.
Singaporeans is not aware of the retirement woes that may befall them.
I hope we wake up to that and be prepared.
lol. I speak Malay fluently but I don't know what this meant too.
"Sukan bukan rakyat Msia" was translated to "Malaysian citizens not sporting" because direct translated "sukan" is sport in Malay.
My guess, might be typo by whoami "Bukan rakyat Msia" or "Saya bukan rakyat Msia" = I'm not Malaysian.
Wow bro, that sounds a plan! Definitely luxury but agree that the price is quite exorbitant.
I don't know anything about ID and contractor quotations just yet, but to comfort you, even if you were to spend the entire sum that you have listed, the total value of your investment will still be well below what the others are asking in the resale market for laguna. (yes, strictly to make u feel Better only - that u had entered the right time
For the Glass roof, why not consider their aluminium louvre for a cheaper option, they selling at RM2,500 ... I think it serves the purpose very well
Rought calculation, exclude furniture and electronic appliances, going to cost me ard RM130k to achieve something i am ok with.. maynot be exactly what i really wan interms of materials and design but something i can accept.. hv to strike a balance in between what i want and wat deem worthy. .
Cause i am going to spend a lot in my entertainment room.. lol..
Will install 1 Movie theatre system and 1 karaoke system independantly.. can hv party at home..
(Eyeing on Sharp 70" LED, only minus point it does not come with 3D)
Could you elaborate more on the "Masterbathroom enlarge and change one whole wall to Glass panel" concept? sounds really interesting.
I associated something like this.
Some hotel actually use this kind of concept too. Open concept and lower down the blinds if privacy is needed. Been to a few such hotels myself. Our bro is very adventurous with his design.
Of course he has to extend the full wall due to the existing design layout. When he mentioned enlarge, I presumed that he wanted to put in a bathtub or jacuzzi or sauna cubicle.
I have similar concept in mind but not as large a scale as his
Understand bro. But that glass roof will reduce your airiation I think. I'm also not sure if it will create some green-house effect and if you would feel warm sitting under it? And at night, if u have a lot a lot of plants in the courtyard, take note that plants will take in oxygen at night, instead of carbon dioxide. Im not sure if u would feel stuffy becausw of this and The effect might be insignificant, but just thought I would share what I still remember I learned in school lol
Anyway, bases on what I have seen so far, I would choose the aluminium louvre
I saw the banner for The 70" sharp. Have not seen it at the electronics shop yet. It certainly will look incredible in one (out of six) of your huge rooms best to knock down one wall to combine two rooms into one
u r right. Extend the bathroom n put a bathtub
Rain shower. Wall facing bedroom change to glass panel
Wall facing living hall also glass
Wanted a glass roof top built above existing glass to enable air ventilation but contractor seems clueless how to do

Meritocracy is Not Wat U Know But Who U Know
Peace Be With You
I asked before and was told that tax will be levied (5%) on the interests earned if the deposit amount is more than 50k and tenure is less than or equal to 12 months. Actually, forgot whether it's 50k or 100k threshold. To overcome this, bank will place multiple sum of 50k (or 100k pending confirmation on which figure is correct) for period up to 12 months (assuming one opts for 12-month FD). I have not heard of tax being levied based on amount of interests earned
I could be wrong so please feel free to correct
