Dream House Makeover In The Process

The house will be going thru a huge renovation. There’s a lot of things to be taken care of when moving to a different chapter of life that’s marriage life and I need to provide the best for my wife.

Dream House Makeover In The Process

It’s really headache to get a renovation work done and I would say renovation is really not an easy job and a lot of time and effort needed to plan and also costing involved.

1) Go search around for reliable and reasonable contractor to get quotation for extension and wet works. Compare the price and choose for the best contractor. (Extension, Painting, Electric Wiring, Plaster Ceiling, Hacking, Tiling / Flooring, etc)

2) You need to get approval from Majilis Perbandaran Subang Jaya (MPSJ) for renovation (Surat Kelulusan Pelan Bangunan). It’s not cheap also to get these two plans up (Architect Plan and Engineering Plan) and approval from MPSJ with Alam Flora Tong Rental.

4) You need to check all the current condition of the house and all. Currently my tangki bocor. Besides that there’s termites attacked that caused the wiring all koyak and need to spend money on pest control too!

5) You need to continue to scout for all the relevant materials (Kitchen Cabinet, Wardrobe, Tiles, Air Cond, Fridge, Washing Machine, TV, Furnitures, etc)

Arghh it’s really stress sometimes but enjoy the process though.

Now still in the process looking for :-

1) Kitchen Cabinet
There’s too many brand out there and I still don’t know which to choose as kitchen cabinet really take up a big sum in total. There’s so many material for the table top like Granite, Quartz, Solid Surface. Which to choose for the table top? What’s the cabinet material (3G Glass, Acrylic, Solid Wood, Melamine (ABS))?

2) Wardrobe
Should I choose on walk in wardrobe instead or sliding door or swing door wardrobe?

3) Tiles
What tiles to use? Homogeneous, Porcelain, Ceramic? So many brand (MML, White Horse, Guocera, Niro Granite, Venus, Alpha) out there how to make the decision?

4) Home Appliances
TV, Air Cond, Washing Machine, Oven, Microwave… (Panasonic, Sharp, Samsung, LG) This is the most headache part too!

5) Furniture
Sofa, Bed, Dining Table, and a lots more to the list…

Any “Idea” or Any “Advise” on how to make the dream house even better? Or anyone want to sponsor or able to recommend or able to get any good lubang or give me a good deal on anything just do not hesitate to contact me! Haha.

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
