.: Renovation Work : Unexpected Thingy : Part 1 :.

Hello, I wanna share with all the readers this interesting topic..Somehow, we cannot predict or foreseen the simple things will be the toughest thing during the renovation period..Below I list down few list for your reference :

1. Curtain + Rail

At first, someone will telling me this job will be an easy task..But unfortunately it's not..At first, you really make sure that you already had an exact measurement for the curtain + rail..If not, it will end up with short or long curtain + rail :)..

That's why we prefer to assign the expert to do that..Let's the expert do their job.. For example, we went to few curtain expertise to get their consultation for the rail..Detail will be explain more below :

a) Macy

The service is quite professional..They provide the installation for the rail + take the exact measurement at your house..We need to book a time with them so that they can come over to your place to measure the exact measurement..Unfortunately, we have to wait for a week so that they can come over to my place, because their schedule are already fully-booked..And the price..i think it is average for the modern + contemporary class..

b) Teewah

The service is OK..But,they didn't provide the consultation to measure the exact measurement at your house..They really and really depend on your exact measurement..
And some more, they didn't provide the installation for the rail..You need to assign someone to place the rail for you :)..And for the price, it's really cheap compare to the modern + contemporary class..

c) Florentino

It's a Singapore base curtain company..The service is professional, provide the installation for the rail + take the exact measurement at your house..Here also need to book a time with them so that they can come over to your place to measure the exact measurement..But we no need to wait longer since their contractor is available during our agreed time..And for the price..it depends on what type of cotton you are choosing and they are really depend on your budget also!! :)

For us, we already assign Florento to do the measurement + installation of the curtain rail, but for the curtain, we choose Teewah since the price is slidely cheaper + less budget :) ..I'll continue on the next post on the unexpected things during renovation day!!

.: Renovation Work : Part 7 :.

Yesterday me and family went to the new house to check on the progress..Below is some summary on the renovation works + pics taken yesterday :

1. Renovation Work on 7th Day

.: Renovation Work : Part 6 :.

This afternoon, I went to the house to check on the progress..Yesterday I met with Florenti contractor, to measure the exact height and width of the doors + windows..So now they can proceed with ordering all the materials for the curtain rail..

Yesterday also I met with Tajab, contractor recommended by Subra..So after discuss with him, we agree to appoint him for paint works..The cost for paint the plaster ceiling + hall + bedroom is RM650..Is it cheap??

But after looking the quality of the paint job today, I'm quite satisfy with their job..Today also Bahari went to our house to install our new wrought iron grill..As mentioned by him, the installation will take 2 days to complete..

Below is some summary on the renovation works + pics taken today :

1. Renovation Work on 6th Day

-Plaster ceiling job completed..Painting job assigned to Tajib
-My outdoor gardening stop
-Wiring work almost completed, they will continue their work for fan + lights installation once the paint job done
