I open my doors today, oh my god, 4 room so small.. Then I am stunned like vegetable when I knock on the walls.. Sounds like partitions.. Inside hollow, now have to think where to drill my TV holder and wall mount racks.. Really face palm..
LOL welcome to bto

Congrats though! Yes, those that are non load bearing walls will be partition walls. I had a nippon painter come over and they recommended paint a sealant layer before normal paint color to help make the wall more "sturdy". Not that expensive if I recall correctly; especially if you take the paint package with them.

I had a foreigner colleague was questioning me why I need to do flooring. I told her how to move in with raw cement on the ground. She was stunned when she discovered we're in lifetime debt for a non-functioning space

My nephew was playing around with a trolley and crashed into an edge of my bomb shelter. The crash was soft but was enough to chip off my wall. This is really scary man..

Lol.. I painting myself.. Brought sealants and paint from Nippon.. Think most likely I paint 2 coats of sealants and see if the wall is more sturdy.. Haha.. My concern, will the stupid dry wall break or studs kanna ripped off if I put heavy staff on the rack on the wall and if next time my relative cames stay, what we talk in one bedroom, I think they can hear.. My mum so angry with the walls, she wants to go hdb and complain.. Haha..


My flat got flooring, but I wonder why the previous selector didn't opt for bedroom door, toilet door, toilet basin.. Now my dad looking for his old Reno friends to help put in DIY my house..

You submit before 7 days is fine. I asked my BSC; they say after 7 days also no issue but importantly is to be done before renovation starts.

please share with us the window grille reviews after you had installed them. Thanks ya
I just installed the window grills I bought. Not hard to install, just need to turn a few screws with Alan key (all provided). However, the hook part need to customised to 6mm as our window grill frame quite thick. Need a bit of strength also but I female was able to install myself too. Total cost S$300 including shipping for living room and 3 bedroom. I tried pulling and pushing out and also hit with my palm. Can sustained with no problem. No dent etc.
