I hate it when there's alot of hidden cost coming out later on.. my previous id told me need to add cost for ceiling painting, kitchen backsplash, painting of doorframe etc.. when on the quotation everything was included.. that was when me and hb really got turned off..
Have you signed with Whst? I saw theirs quite cheap too. Since I die die have to get the flooring myself, I was thinking whether to find direct contractor or get ID to quote.

Try beyond atelier from Carousell. Heís my ID, I scare he too busy thatís why didnít share earlier. But heís one of the cheapest (even mentioned in both carousell & Facebook reviews).

But problem is his flooring schedule is very tight cause he got a lot orders.

thanks for the information. I was thinking of getting the ID to do the kitchen cabinets, hack the wall between the kitchen and service yard, 6ft wardrobe for all the 3 bedrooms, vinyl flooring for living room and 3 bedrooms and paint the whole house.

Lightings - get own electrician
Window grille - get own contractor (renotalk got one quite cheap one)

I'm meeting ID from Tab Gallery today..
If he can really close with the amount he offered me thru WS, then he'll be the cheapest amongst those I have approached. Current cheapest is Aristo Woodcraft.. $100 pfr for cabinet and $100 pfr for quartz.

I'll update again tonight!

He has a 7k basic move in package include 4+1 painting, 20ft kitchen, lighting & water heater installation (u buy your own bulbs, fans additional charge). Iíve also asked him about hacking wall, full wall at 1k+? (Canít really remember, cause in the end I never hack). 4 room 5mm Germany vinyl is $2599, screeding $1899. Built in cabinet I never do but I rmb 6feet less than 2k. Window grill I canít remember but if I not wrong also 700 for 4 room. Cause in the end my grill I buy Taobao haha

Great. Waiting for your updates. Cos other ID quote around 4k - 5k for 20ft kitchen cabinet. If yours is $200pfr for cabinet + quartz, consider quite cheap

I saw many people talking about this contractor for window grille

Jun Contractor 85861425. Some commented quite good, fast and cheap. Got one commented that the material he use is too thin. I am not too sure.

Another one recommend Home Aluminium.

$580 for service yard window

From the information I gathered from Renotalk, something like dat

Painting around 1.5k for 4 rooms flat
Kitchen Cabinet if base on what Monday's ID quote is around $2k plus for 20'ft
Lighting installation around 2k (including power point shifting and some extra points up to 10 points, I guess).
Wardrobe 6'ft - 1.2k ( I saw some very cheap ones at $900 only)
Vinyl flooring 2.5k
Screeding - about 2k (if engage contractor and did't get free 40mm screeding from HDB)


Like dat means his package is around (estimated). Around market price

Painting - 2k
Lighting - 2k
20'ft Kitchen Cabinet - 3k

How do you buy the window grille from Taobao and fix on your own? good material? I am very interested in this one. Care to share the link? Thank you
