Called up HDB grant department this morning. Though didn't manage to speak to the actual officer in-charge, but managed to speak to her colleague. Was told that they are assessing our application right now. Will take 3-6 weeks to process the application. She also told me that the calculation does not take into consideration for our 13th month salary and bonus (if any).
I guess the calculation indeed does not take in 13th month bonus cos I got exactly the amount i calculated without my bonuses...


Guess my friends case all diff..

8.7k with hacking and cabinets quite good price. But you no need wardrobe? Shoe cabinet? Feature wall/ tv console?
Due to my tight budget, i removed all things that were not really necessary right now... Dunno why but i prefer those nordic TV consol than the feature wall type... Lol... Wardrobe still can use current one... Shoe cabinet also got current one...

Right now only do up the must haves like grill and cabinet... Once moved in, stop paying for rental, then i have a better chance of saving for things that i have in mind....

I did share with a few people here with my ID contact from YIS Living. is a friend of mine though.. his company also dont charge GST. Do make sure those ID you source dont have any hidden cost.. especially those keep ask you pay deposit one..
What they submit to us in the quotation form and what they use for bank loan is usually the final amount right?

I waiting for them to give me the approval and if the figures is wrong, I will appeal again. I'm experienced in it anyway

Another one came back with quotations late last night... 8.1k but not inclusive of electrical works. I need to contact his sub-con for that . Asked him for an estimation, he quoted me $600. Total amount sam with the second guy but no free gifts... so I need to take into consideration that i have to put aside money for stove, hood, sink and tap...
Ah yes. Mine qouted 15k.

1. 20ft cabinet
2. 9ft tall unit
3. 10ft iquartz worktop
4. 10ft glass backsplash
5. Plumbing
6. Electrical
7. Grilles for whole hs + windows for SY
8. 2x shower screens
9. 6ft wardrobe for MB
10. Wall beadings for living room + hallway
11. Double beadings for tv area
12. Vinyl flooring
13. Haulage + debris removal
14. Chemical wash
15. Foc installations of heater + toilet acessories + lighting points

Initially i wanted to paint myself too but the memory of painting a 2-room flat is already so painful hahahaha so i thought let the experts handle this time...

Plus my husb is not someone who is really precise about details. if he paint he anyhow paint as long got color.... Make me half crazy
