Síporean couple pays S$95,000 for minimalistic home renovation, gets reactions

Minimalist, Muji-like home
Featured on the third episode of the show is Max and Michelle, first-time homeowners of a four-room BTO apartment.

And they had a Muji concept in mind.

Cost breakdown
According to the show, this was the breakdown of the renovation costs:

Carpentry: S$55,600

Wetworks: S$12,000

Miscellaneous: S$7000

Flooring: S$5000

Hacking: S$4500

Electrical: S$4000

Plumbing: S$3600

Glass: S$1800

Total: S$93,500

This was how the couple reacted to the price:



Max: Iím not going to pay.

Michelle: Yes, we are.

Max: Yes, I am.

The renovation also took a total of 16 weeks, instead of the projected 10 to 12 weeks.

Why?
While the price did go above the coupleís budget by about S$35,000 (based on S$60,000 expectation), the interior designer did tell them to expect to pay about S$75,000.

The costs mainly increased, according to the interior designer, because of added mechanisms and last minute changes like refabrication of the kitchen cabinets as the couple received a refrigerator from Michelleís family that was bigger than they had expected.

The timeline was also delayed by a month due to shipping delays of materials for the house.

WHO SAY SINKIES ARE POOR???

Wah this will set precedent for all businesses.

My contract is 60k, but due to additional work that wasn't discussed in the contract, i have to add 35k more into it. So please pay more 35k more now.

Just like Jover Chew sial.

I pity 1st time home owners...

So many of them leaves the reno job to their ID, then the ID say what they listen.

Total morons.

My dad's in the home furnishing business, i went with him to visit 1 client before and we got the job after we gave our quote to the home owner, and the reason was because the price we quoted is 2 times LESSER than what their ID quoted them.

My dad told them, IDs usually take quotes from suppliers like my dad, then they will x2 x3 x4 times then give customers. most customers will agree because they trust the ID, but most IDs are leeches.
