Most of the carpentry are starting to come up now. Leaving the kitchen carpentry which is the most complicated. As you can see from the top photo, here's the bottom cabinet of the vanity area in the lower floor bathroom.
False ceiling up!
Here's the vanity for the upper bathroom
Customised "floating" bedframe.
pardon my photos here...due to low lighting and a shaky hand - yes it's me taking all the photos here.
it's been a week already and all the new walls are erected now. And all the wall tiles for the bathrooms are laid too. Today we are here to do the choosing of the pattern tiles and the setting out of the floor tiles.

Just wanted to update my blog a little on what we have been doing for the past months. I've sort of "neglected" my blog with just photos of renovation progress and not much tinkering/bantering on our design processes at home. Well, we have been rigorously designing and not just visiting sites! hah!
For the past 2 months, besides this new BTO flat which we are designing for at Buangkok, we have been re-thinking and churning out ideas for a 3 room resale where you can read about here. and a maisonette at CCK where you can read about it here. and another BTO flat in Yishun at here.
It's like a hibernating period for us. Just waiting for the hungry ghost period to be over and BOOM! we are going to start all the renos!!!
so hang on tight to your seats cos the progress photos are coming soon fast and furious.
TRANSLATING'S A TRANSLATOR'S IDEAL HOME
Searching for the perfect home since he turned the eligible age to purchase a HDB flat, a bachelor came to us some time in early June and wanted us to help him to do up his 3 room HDB at Holland Ave. The ideas for the home were very simple and utilitarian. The important thing was to have a welcoming area for him to watch telly where he can "stone" out and his bedroom to have a study area to put his books and for him to work from home.
And I'm really pleased to say this....
