House Renovation: Week Two

Syukur Alhamdulillah! I cannot be more than thankful now, seeing the progress of our major construction. The workers are a wonder, they're quick! I went to the site for a straight 2 days and every other day, there must have been something new everytime we drop by.

I will share my contractors info and details once the house is completed. And whether they are recommended or not, based on my personal point of view and experience. For the time being, let's just do with the current updates on the house.

The major works for our living hall. Previously, the entrance is through sliding doors. We took them off, installed new 3-panel windows and set up a new 1-door entrance at the side.

The outside/front look of the house. The day we went, they already built the wall and window holes. The next day, they removed the old zinc awning and started to work on the wood awning. Yeay!

The bathroom and separate toilet. Once they installed the new toilet bowl and sink, we just realized that we still have ample space left for the bathroom. Aaaagggggg! We need to change the doors and coat the walls with gloss finish. Dizzy!

The new window for the third room at the back of the house.

The new black tiles have been installed, together with the new window. They just need to do another paint job and install new wall tiles, then the cabinet people will come and set up the new kitchen cabinet.

We received mixed reviews on the chosen wall colors from people who have visited the house. I admit the colors are too strong and yes, sometimes they do look like a splash of kindergarten colors. Haha but I kept ground and won't change the colors because I believe in my choice, no matter how fugly they are. 

This is really a major construction. We know we have some minor and hidden costs prior to this construction. This includes new fans, lighting, furniture, bathroom appliances and the list goes on. I'm in dire need of donation! For the time being, baby preparation is currently on hold. Oh, sedihnyeeeeeee!

You'll find certain materials that really should in no way be disposed of down the drain of a utility sink or any sink for that matter. This is primarily the case with food items. Grease will be the worst factor it is possible to dump down a drain.
