Since there are many house owners in this forum, i am also interested to know how is your renovation ideal and also the budget spent. In addition, i believe by providing pictures, it can also help some home owners in determining the renovation plan, as renovation is a very headache task but interesting.

My kitchen - White & simple
budget - RM 3,600.00 (top and under)
- appx rm 180 per foot long for table top and underneath cabinet.
- appx rm 140 for top kitchen cabinet
- appx rm 90 for underneath cabinet without table top.

HOOB AND HOB
- appx rm 1700

CONCRETE TABLE TOP WITH 2*2 TILES
- THE JOB INCLUDE HACK AND KNOCK DOWN FOR THE PREVIOUS TABLE TOP AND REBUILD TO THIS BLACK TILES CONCRETE TABLE TOP.
- appx rm 120 for a foot long

KITCHEN SINK
- round shape
- appx rm 380.00

KITCHEN TAPE

well, to me, is just not a matter of tolerance. it is planning and ideal. once renovation is done, there is no turn back, so to me, i am quite careful and discreet in doing it. Regarding deep pocket ? i guess u mean tight budget. Indeed, u right right, i am quite tight in budget as a renovation of a house could easily come to 50k and even 100k is quite normal nowadays.

Thanks

Yes. No turning back.
That's what I said, high level of tolerance.

Assuming the finished work is not what you expected, you should also accept it as long as it's well done.
For eg, you pick a paint color from the color chart & the painter proceed with his work.
Then one day u went to ur hse & saw the paint color is not what you had in mind (color chart differs u know?), you can:
1) accept & live with it OR
2) get the painter to repaint
U get what I'm trying to say?

Next, deep pocket = huge budget.

the hoob & hob are the brand of IKA. Yet another china made product which is the same factory of Fagor. I get it from Puchong, if u really interested, send me a pm, I will guide you how to get it cheaper. Not bad compare wit other brands. The hob is very quiet and yet still powerful.

That is why, whenever come to renovation, we should not just get rough and whole estimation from the contractor, we have to break up calculation and truely understand how they charge us.

Beforehand, what size of tile u use ? is it 1ft*1ft or 2ft*2ft ?

ok, normally, the charges is about rm 120.00 to rm 150.00 It depends on the contractor if he sub it to other people to perfom the job, or if he rent the equipment. Most probably, RM 120.00 is most reasonable. the price should inclusive of hacking job, and remodelling of the whole table tops with tiles.

with all the scopes u mentioned, expecially added up with air conds, that should be quite cheap. But, of course, it all depends on the criterials and size.

Keep a reference price as a comparison as the price i suggested, thus you can come out with the calculation by yourself rather than get a rough and round calculation form your respective contractors.

Hi a6meister, don't mind pm me the contractor name and hp or shop address that help you do the concrete table for 2 X 2 tile? Look reasonable RM 120 per foot. Just now I ask one shop quote me RM 160.00 per foot. Crazy expensive. My whole L-shape I think if I didn't measure wrong it will be 15.5ft. I only want to do the concrete table no cabinet yet as I'm out of budget.

Hey I like the black color you did. Can I follow same color as you lol but sink I will go for square one haha..TQ.

Oh yeah, I'm located at Jalan Puchong. biggrin.gif

yes, some contractor do charge up to 160 per square feet for the job, which include the labour. But, nare in mind that a 2*2 tiles is only about rm 25 to 30 a piece.

ok, i will try to find out the contractor number cause the number is in my office. By the way, where is ur location ? thanks

ok, time for me to show the paint colour of my house. I personally think the colour scheme had been messed up by me and my fiancee decision, but, nothing i can do since had bought the paint.

I did all the painting for this whole semi detached house, which took me almost 1 month, cause i only did it during weekend, but cost saving. it took me almost 7 cans of 5 litres NIPPON SATIN GLO, which is rm 78 a can.

the whole painting work had save me about 2k if compare to i hire some one to do, plus, i can confirm that my own workmanship is not bad at all compare with the professional painter.

My new house kitchen, or should I say my mom's kitchen. laugh.gif

Whole cabinet, RM7K+.

Hood & Hob RM5K+.

My new house renovation not much, around RM40K+. The people here spent more, close to RM100K. The corner house behind even more powderful, more than RM200K+. His house is like a freaking traditional museum style sial, not my type but greatly done. He also bought like 6 palm trees to put them at the alley, this fella most probably got too much money to spend...

My whole house is using Dulux Supreme, except for 2 rooms. There are 5 rooms in total. I'm using another Dulux, because Superme does not have the color that I want. Supreme is pretty expensive RM130+. We hired a painter, workmanship RM2.5K.

My apple green, FTW!

No prob, I love to pimp a house. biggrin.gif

Most lightings are bought from IKEA some from wholesale shop, air-cond got "lubang" to get dealer price. 1.5HP = RM7xx, 2HP = RM1,2xx (York brand). Fans bought from wholesale shop. smile.gif

My grill protector cost RM5K for whole house. We picked a simple grill, it's easier when we need to open the curtain. I don't like fancy, flower type of grills. Disadvantage are, hard to see cleary outside, hard to clean, it's sharp will get hurt easily and etc. smile.gif

its really hard to give any meaningful advise without knowing your layout.

but some common sense suggestions:

1) if you do a lot of cooking, may have to consider knocking down partitions and take up some of the surrounding areas

2) buy a smaller fridge!

3) dont worry so much abt it. a lot of ppl worry a lot abt small kitchen but eventually they hardly even use it. makan luar smile.gif

well, have not visited this website for long time. let me update some pictures i have to share.

i would like to share a little about the kitchen sink and tape. i spent quite a heft amount on these 2 items as i believe it will be for long run. To buy a nice and good quality kitchen sink ( such as TEKA OR REGINOX ), try to identify few aspects. first, it must be WHOLE PIECE. Which mean, the whole sink is made or mould by using one piece of stainless steel. secondly, do not buy a shining type. try to find a piece that has a rough vision on top.

Thanks

What's wrong with a shining type?
And what do you mean by rough vision on top?? You mean the surface of the sink?

no need to worry too much, shape is just an illusion. dont judge ur kitchen out look and sentence it. try to put some beauty inside it and it can become a wonder. hold on to simple and nice. it take me a week to figure out what to do with my low cost house kitchen. turn out that all my friend was shock to see it. show to people what u have and ask around for advise before u plan anything. take ur time and relax.

What's wrong with a shining type?

yes, it looks like blurish on the surface. This, will prove the quality of stainles steel which is from a accurate metal types composition.

your kitchen and mine kitchen sort of have some similarity. and honestly, i think the black cabinet looks good in those combination. How much do they charge you for a feet of the top kitchen and 1 feet long underneath ? is it using a solid wood, or chip board ?

Thanks

Thanks, my wife is also happy about it. Lucky got things right and didnt blow a huge amount on furniture since i got it from cavenzi instead of ikea. I cant seem to find the quotation, since its awhile ago but initially its RM4600 for top and bottom cabinet. But i ask to add in aluminum trimming on all the cabinet doors, frosted glass, hydraulic arm, stainless steal tray and stainless steal handle. OK i didnt ask, but my friend which did this design for me ask me to, so that it enhances the contrast between steel and wood. Everything comes up to RM5.5k The material use are ABS melamine board, i did consider chip board but my contractor told me to use the ABS one cause it has better water resistance. If i remember right, solid wood price is crazy high, cant afford them. Back 4 years ago I did one small cabinet ~ 6 feet for my mom's place and cost me RM 3000++ and god was that small. But it really do look good cause of the classic appearance.

well, have not visited this website for long time. let me update some pictures i have to share.

i would like to share a little about the kitchen sink and tape. i spent quite a heft amount on these 2 items as i believe it will be for long run. To buy a nice and good quality kitchen sink ( such as TEKA OR REGINOX ), try to identify few aspects. first, it must be WHOLE PIECE. Which mean, the whole sink is made or mould by using one piece of stainless steel.  secondly, do not buy a shining type. try to find a piece that has a rough vision on top.

Thanks

how about Abeiter or Rubine?
i guess those are much better than TEKA...

i'm not sure about that...still noob
just asking

That consist of few different contractors. If you want a contractor for kitchen cabinet work, i will let you have the number. thanks


Added on November 17, 2008, 9:41 amwell, actually, i quite some enquiries through PM regarding the kitchen cabinet. For those who wants to renovate their new house, please just call me at 0124272637.

before you want to get a quotation, please do some following thing -

1. use a measurement tap to measure the length of the desired renovate area.
2. for kitchen cabinet, make 3 different measurements -
a.) WALL CABINET = ___ ft b.) UNDER CABINET = ___ ft c. KITCHEN TABLE TOP WITH UNDER CABINET = ___ft.

For those provided measurements, you will get a quotation from me.

P/S, I STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU GET A FEW QUOTATION FROM OTHER RENOVATORS BEFORE YOU REACH ME IN ORDER TO GET A COMPARISON.

Thanks

nope, i am not a cabinet maker. But, the cabinet maker is a close friend of mine. i was in the construction business as well, thus, i believe his price is very reasonable compare with other cabinet maker in KL. if you are interested, kindly give him a call. he might help you.

ok, time for me to show the paint colour of my house. I personally think the colour scheme had been messed up by me and my fiancee decision, but, nothing i can do since had bought the paint.

I did all the painting for this whole semi detached house, which took me almost 1 month, cause i only did it during weekend, but cost saving. it took me almost 7 cans of 5 litres NIPPON SATIN GLO, which is rm 78 a can.

the whole painting work had save me about 2k if compare to i hire some one to do, plus, i can confirm that my own workmanship is not bad at all compare with the professional painter.

hello all,
Thanks for the pictures and information, it helps to see what others are dealing with. Kitchen renovations can be very exciting as well as time consuming. I keep planning for my dream kitchen, but it is still on paper at this point.

Have you tried any good tips that you can pass along to others? The kitchen cabinets are normally the more expensive part of the whole plan, right? I guess one needs to decide on those first, I like what you came up with.


need any home renovation tips.....flooring and carpet

Hi, can someone tell me the cost of tiling?
I have been quoted RM 3.5 / sq ft, leveling & laying tiles but excluding materials like cement, sand & of course, tiles.
Tiles will cost another RM 2.5 per sq ft.
Are these the market rates?

Hi , just came across this thread & share some experience with every1 here....

I got my keys to my condo also last month , Just finish my simple renovation...

Hi naleh33 :

1st & foremost , i think u need some Vision or Idea what u want to do with ur house 1st - A concept or Theme , Try to get it from going through some INTERIOR RENOVATION MAGAZINE - I think it will cost u RM 10 -RM 20 only for 1 , get a few books if to get more variety.... AFter that , u can Look for Renovator / Contractor / ID ......

if u go for Single Renovator / Contractor which Renovate everything - u will safe ur energy & time... Usually got some Renovator / Contractor which is STATION @ your condo area ( PAO CHEONG ) , if ur condo is Just completed.. usually 3-4 Group of Renovators / Contractors....
Try to compare their prices - Get a few lar... compare for urself..... Let them know ur idea get some suggestion from them & compare apple to apple the Quotation.... Also , Check out their Quality & Workmanship by a Viewing their Completed Project ( if there is la ).... U can also go & seach for urself others Contractors / Renovators Outside & compare..

Wat i can say is sometimes hiring these STATION Contractor ( PAO CHEONG ) can be an advantage becos , they know the Your Bulding Materials Specs / Requirement ...... as in ur Paint color code , Tiles Code , Standard Grille Design ( if there is la ) , Renovation Application - Renovation Deposit & security Deposit .... & since they are Station there , They are Saving a bit on Mobilasation Cost becos their Sub-con dont need to Travel to much ..... And also u dont have to worry about coordinating them ( if they are Hire Seperately ) , they will co-ordinate themself...... In My case , My Main Contrator did my ELECTRICAL including Hacking Wall & Additional Power Points / Fan Points / Air-cond Points , PLASTERING all the Hacked wall + Will Touch-up Back with Original Paint color ..... CONCRETE TOP , Some Tiling Works , Some Plumbing works + Tiling Works , PLaster Ceiling , Window & Door Grille , Additional Aluminium Window , Gypsum Wall , Additional Painting Works , & lastly Installation of All the Lights Fittings / Fans / Water Heater , etc..........

The Kitchen Cabinet i let another Guy do ( Fren ) , The rest all i Let 1 Contractor Handle ( Less Headache ) ,

If u look for a Multiple sub Contractors , i tink maybe u can save some Money , around 10-15% maybe ... I am just guessing lar - Maybe more , Maybe less ..., But the thing is , u need to do all the Coordinating / Monitoring ...... u need to meet up with all of them , one by one , or call them up , one by one..... very tiring one , unless u are willing to do so & u got a lot of time ......, or Maybe what u can do is Filter them , somethimes u know lar we got frens who might be doing something we need & that we can get good price one .... Maybe you can take it out from the works of the Main Contractor / Renovator ..... In my case - The Kitchen Cabinet / Wardrobe ...

Lastly , u Mentioned ID , if u can afford to Hire & I.D. ( Interior Designer ) , then i guess u are quite Wealthy ( or Willing to Spend lar ) ... Then u dont have to Worry .. He ( The ID will do everything for u - That is wat u pay him for )
From ideas to Conceptual , to designing , to Renovation , to Hiring Renovator ( either the one the ID Recommended one or Tender one ) to Monitoring , Supervising & coordinating of Renovation works , Fittings & Furniture selections / consultations , All & everything he will help u to do........... but from what i know The Fees Dont come Cheap.....

Anyhow.... Just sharing my 2 cents here.... smile.gif & all the Best in ur House Renovation..... biggrin.gif

It is considered slightly overpriced. I would recommend RM 5 per square feet which inclusive of labour and materials.

By the ways, is the surface of the tiling concrete or muddy ?

Oh no, I just did my tiling for RM5/sqft excluidng the tile price.

The RM5/sqft includes:
1. Labour, cement and sand.
2. Free tiling for skirting
3. Any size of tile (2' x 2' for my case)
4. Dismantle the old parquet floor (ugly uneven floor after this)

Basically, the workmanship and services are good. It's just that the price is on the high side as you said. smile.gif

Some pics of mine.

Cabinets/internal mechanism from Bina Warehouse
Hob/oven/hood from Teka
Double sink with flexi tap from Foster
Top from Corian

Total Cost: ~rm42k

rclxub.gif dun ask me where the money went....i almost faited when the final bill was ready. Its expensive due to the internals, all imported from germany, and i must admit they feel very good, soft close, L shape drawer is on runners, the 2 side seaoning drawers were foc

Cabinet Colour is slightly off, would have preferd darker...but once in prodcution cant change

The flower tiles was my wifes choice which she insisted, about RM22 each sad.gif but they are quite nice

but if i were ever to do another house, i would not spend the same amount, would probably go for 1 level lower, get it in under 20k, 42k for a kitchen is abit rediculous

I thought before we commit to the contractor to start work, we need to agree upon the price. It seems that you do not know how much is the final price before this. Wow 42K worth kitchen... rclxub.gif but Corian top is very $$$ no doubt.

You have to make use of the kitchen daily to make use of the money spent on it.

some forumers send me a message asking me how much actually is the hood and hob that i bought.

the price of the hood and hob when i bought is rm 1700.00

but, i think, many can get it cheaply at rm 1450.00 at most shops.

thee brand is IKA, not a branded but, till now, it is still working nicely and the suction, if not mistakenly is 920 m3.

Thanks

a6meister,

How much do you spend on concrete top? Your first reply only mentioned the cost per sq ft, but didnt mentioned how much in total.

Do you mind to tell us, in total how much you spend?

Some pics of mine.

Cabinets/internal mechanism from Bina Warehouse
Hob/oven/hood from Teka
Double sink with flexi tap from Foster
Top from Corian

Total Cost: ~rm42k

rclxub.gif  dun ask me where the money went....i almost faited when the final bill was ready. Its expensive due to the internals, all imported from germany, and i must admit they feel very good, soft close, L shape drawer is on runners, the 2 side seaoning drawers were foc

Cabinet Colour is slightly off, would have preferd darker...but once in prodcution cant change

The flower tiles was my wifes choice which she insisted, about RM22 each  sad.gif  but they are quite nice

but if i were ever to do another house, i would not spend the same amount, would probably go for 1 level lower, get it in under 20k, 42k for a kitchen is abit rediculous

if it's 3G surface then it is quite cheap, but the glossy surface can also be paint only - is it confirmed 3G?

Hijack the thread a bit, also i am trying to find a contractor to renovate my condo unit, currently i got a few quotations already but the price seems to be on the higher range.. what i am looking to do is:

1) plaster ceiling
2) concreate top at wet kitchen
3) solid surface / granite for dry kitchen
4) hacking of existing concreate top and door panel and a small part of a wall
5) build 2 walls to form a small bedroom
6) air con, wiring, sliding door, grill and a few more items

if anyone has good experience with contractors, i hope you can recommend to me.. biggrin.gif

thanks first smile.gif

From what I can see the kitchen table is using the Corian solid surface (same as the rest of the kitchen countertop). This would be custom made to fit the rest of the kitchen.

nice kitchen you have there jwrx.. , although you might think it as expensive, in long-run, I think you are paying for the quality.. (maybe.. biggrin.gif).. coz you said it's from germany? (the internal:??)

and for abmeister.. >> your design is great.., and the bill even nicer! not that expensive..

I think concrete top is among top choice for current generation of new house owner. I have a concrete top for my 1st house. Using a big tile (2 X 2 feet) for the top and all around cover. On the 1st looks.. deceived few friend.. thinking i'm using a marbled top.. (huaahaha.. out of this world budget lah.. if using marble top)

thanks for the contact number too.. , may you earn some contacts and more importantly.. few deal from this thread too..

I think 42k for a self favourable kitchen is reasonable. we should understand that, renovation can easily reach 100k for a house.

JWRX, your kitchen indeed looks really nice.

Just some cost sharing, smallest kitchen ever, can't do much cooking.

» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «


The cost of everything, table top, hood, hob, oven, sink, tab, cabinet and re-tiling is approx 6000 bucks.
Cabinet is all the way towards to the top, but only one row, non L shaped.

Cheers.

Yup, it's marble surface.
The cabinet is using chipboard.
The oven, hob and hood comes as a single package. We bought it during promotion, which is a bit cheaper, I think.
The sink and the dish & cup drying thing is provided by the cabinet supplier.
The tab we bought separately during a promotion.
We bought the tiles ourselves in Jln Ipoh, and the guy doing the table top is also doing the tiling for the wall, which is the main contractor for all the plaster ceilings in the house as well, as well as power points.

We bought the cabinet from Legend Kitchen.
http://www.legendkitchen.com/

I'll post more pic soon. Thanks!

I think it would be wise to visit a hardware shop before visit contractor....

ask the hardware shop how things are made; price and quality....

as owner tend to find cheapest contractor... which contractor tend to give cheapest goods & lowest quality to meet the cheap payment from owner...

after visit hardware shop, then only visit contractor, ask them, what grade material u use etc...

example, for tiling, contractor would skip waterproffing procedure, this would result in the marble gap to leak and solidified algae will grow....

what to do?? redo the whole thing... tear and re-tile

No prob, I love to pimp a house.  biggrin.gif

Most lightings are bought from IKEA some from wholesale shop, air-cond got "lubang" to get dealer price. 1.5HP = RM7xx, 2HP = RM1,2xx (York brand). Fans bought from wholesale shop.  smile.gif

My grill protector cost RM5K for whole house. We picked a simple grill, it's easier when we need to open the curtain. I don't like fancy, flower type of grills. Disadvantage are, hard to see cleary outside, hard to clean, it's sharp will get hurt easily and etc.  smile.gif

can give the "lubang" contact if air-conto us or not? and also the the whosales shop of your fans.

Thank you very much!!

I just finish renovation for my apartment. My suggestion is get a few quotes, between 3 - 4. Go for quality contractors, but not so expensivelah. Buy your own materials as much as possible like tiles & paints - cheaper in long run, but you must put in effort (strongly recommend Jalan Ipoh - lots of hardware shops). Better still, I get my contractor to take me to Jalan Ipoh and nego for me.

Make sure you monitor their work daily i.e. visit the site...my first contractor, I never monitor. After that, I have to pay even more money to fix the mistakes they make - and then must go thru headache to choose another contractor. Lucky second contractor very professional. Did excellent job. The contractor I used even recommended the place to buy cheap hob and hood bcos he saw the sale- Fagor brand - only RM2200 after discount. But, make sure you buy it yourself, not through the contractor.

For table top, I did mine for RM125. But the price range is between RM120 - RM150 (based on 4 contractors). Bottomline, if you put in some effort and not just count on the contractor, you can save some money and have peace of mind - renovation done accordingly.

from the tile shop, ask for some kind of Grout compound...these grout are suppose to be anti-bacteria & what not and can be easily wiped clean with damp cloth if dirty...those black fungal & moles apparently cant stick on these grouts...

i have my kitchen & bathroom's tiles (floor & walls) installed with grouts.

Did you check with the contractor if those cost (2.3K @ 127 per sq ft) includes the cost of the supporting side beam of the table-top?
Does that include the tiles?

it depends on the layout of your kitchen...my wet kitchen, L-Shape, about 13ft total length, both side no 'side-beam'

basically they drill metal rods into wall for support, i think these days, they dun normally have 'side beams' liao...plus it takes up so much space..

RM110-RM120/ft run not including tiles is the standard & fair rates i think altho was quoted RM150 before...RM190 is a total rip off...with or without tiles

tiles better get your own, else you will get real lousy quality tiles...spend a bit more..concrete table tops is not something you wanna replace on a yearly basis...let it last..

I dont think there is such thing as sound-proof for a condo, what you could do are:

1) Install reflective tinted film on your glass windows, that helps alot to reduce the noise from outside. Depending on the thickness that would help block out the noise from coming in.

2) Change the window rubber seal to a better quality ones. The rubber seal is between the window and the frame, that would help to reduce the noise level significantly.

Double layer glass window will have noise and heat reduction effect. You may check if there is any shops around that sell it.

They are called double-glazed / triple-glazed windows.
Common overseas to insulate either for controlling temperature breach or sound, sometimes natural lighting too.

These never come affordable.

if you want to reduce sound coming in from your windows, a reflective film will _not_ help. changing the seals might help a bit.

what you need has been correctly pointed out: double glazed windows preferably with a european window system such as UPVC reenforced with steel inlets or an enforced alluminium frame with double or tripple locking and all the bells and whistles. this will reduce noice tremendously. we live next to a busy road, got the those windows and the house is as quiet as one could hope for. only thing i can hear is a loud motorcycle / exhaust but other than that nada.

if you need a contact for allumiumum double glazed windows i can give you a contact who does install aubi system from germany. very very good. coolaroo (hope the spelling is right) ppl can do UPVC installation. if you go for UPVC make sure the ppl know how to handle it. if cut to fast you get nasty looks and installation needs very much care, patience and more care as well as knowledge. in other words you might not be able to get the required installation skills in malaysia wink.gif

pricing will be a lot more than your regular allumium frame window. i dont know how many windows you need to redo so you would have to check with the installer (give them the amount of windows, sizes and design you want).

anybody who can assist to quote for the following:
1. kitchen
2. wardrobe
3. plaster ceiling
4. installation of AC, heaters, lightings, ceiling fans, etc
5. grilles
6. painting
7. curtain railings

i got a fren who just collected keys last weekend. total approx 300+ units in the development. it's a condominium project and i reckon there'll be quite substantial people renovating farely soon as the area is quite 'hot' and renting out to students is quite norm.
would like to cut some sort of deal with contractors in terms of the contractor providing the services for the above works and in return, can have exclusive advertisement rights ala showhouse to show all owners in the development of the product (samples + mock-up). in other words, the contractor finish the renovations ASAP, then can start marketing and hunting potential clients from the unit itself.
i come to know similiar deals in other developments before.
the deal is usually letting contractor take the unit for about 6 months and in return either free renovation or hugely discounted cost to the owner. would appreciate responses ASAP.
the last time i heard about such deals, the contractor told me himself he practically got 1 free unit from the profit itself. but that was 10 years ago in my property which consists of more than 1000 units!!!
thanks.
i posted same message in another almost similiar thread. moderators please spare me as i only posted in two thread and hopefully this is not considered spam?

Usually demolition quite cheap one lah. But also need to factor in transport cost for lorry to cart your junk away. Total budget should be RM1k tops.

I am planning to extend kitchen for another 8' X 18. however 4' out of 8' has some sort of brick at the both side (designed for laundry area outside the house). Is this 4' will be calculated also by the contractor in the price? since I heard extension will be charged around RM 80-12O per square feet. tq

most of the high end window system do quite well in sound proofing with double rubber seal, wool par lining.

price ler.... at least rm50/ft2 for window & rm 65+/ft2 for door

30-40% is good enough ..and then progressive along the way ...Its good practise also to keep 5-10% after completion...to ensure he will keep coming if you need touch up ...a good renovator will agree and x probem with such terms ...good luck ya

As deposit wise, I didn't pay anything for those individual contractor (those uncles no shop 1) except for reputable shop that request for deposit before can start building the material.

Only when the work progressing or at the end of the job, i'll pay them.

It is not a good idea to put 2x2 on wall. It might not stick well on the wall.
Even for floor, 2x2 need to apply gam cement to make it stick enough according to my cement contractor.

The wall is not 2x2, its slightly bigger than 1 ft, but cant remember how many inch. Its also rectangle, not square.
Cost of the renovation is:

kitchen (extention and tiles, window) - RM12k
Toliets (tiles, new wc)- 6k
Plaster ceiling (living, dining, kitchen, 3 rooms- RM3.5k

got a quote from contractor extend kitchen 18 x 4 and making a roof area about 3 feet (to hang clothes) = RM12.5K. just for extension and exclude tiles and wiring. is it consider OK? I heard contractor roughly charged based on square feet for a complete renovation (include tiles) for example RM 80-120 per square feet. if based on this, that quote might be slightly higher. however outside of my existing kitchen there is 18 x 8 area which already has 2 side wall that will be connected to the existing kitchen and those 18 X 4 extension. My question, is it normal for the contractor to calculate that 18 X 8 area with 2 side wall into their quote. thank you, hope my question is clear smile.gif

How much did you pay for the Sakura hood?
Any review on it as for its effectiveness, noisy level during operation, etc?
TQ smile.gif
