You Gotta Be Shitting Me

Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day

And it’s Day 3 of my renovation journey.

Collected my key on the 20th February but the contractors could only start this week.

Photos before the demolition :

Hall view

Bedroom view


Kitchen view

Common room wall (to be hacked)

They’ve finished the demolition work today, so I went to take photos of the aftermath. However, all the lights were gone, so I had to take the pictures in the dark. Heng Faustine could still rise to the occasion :

living room

Bedroom access to bathroom


New Hall

My contractor told me we hit a snag : After the common room wall came down, they found out the elevation of the lobang left behind isn’t flat. As a result, it is not feasible to lay tiles over this lobang.


They are still searching for a suitable material to fill up the lobang. At first they suggested using pebble wash, but I don’t fancy transversing a rough patch every time I walk across the room.

They will be laying the tiles for the kitchen and bathroom tomorrow. Hopefully the tiles I’ve selected will look nice. 😛
