CIRP : Renovation project almost completed

CIRP = Casa Idaman Renovation Project

Got a call from my contractor today towards the end of my office hour that he needs to see me. Told him that I can be there at Casa Idaman around ‘6:30pm’ish , and he said that he can wait.

Got so many things in my head of why he needed to see me badly, where usually he’s gone at 5pm (the time that any construction work should stop). Hope that it’s not bad news or something bad happened.

Upon reaching Casa Idaman, and upon reaching my house, and upon opening the front door, I got speechless to see this.

It’s quite cute of my contractor to surprise me with the progress of the renovation work, which from yesterday, I see it far from completion.

After I received a briefing from him about what has been done and what left to be done, I started touring the house and admiring the transformation that this house has undergone.

These are the views from the master bedroom.

This is the guest bedroom.

This is my study room. The plaster ceiling here is a bit low due to the air conditioner piping that needs to pass through here, so the fan that I bought can’t be fit. Need to get the mini one. I hope to find a buyer for the KDK K14Y9 GY fan that I bought.

This is the hallway to the 4 room.

This is the kitchen (the tiling work still need to be done).

And this is the yard.

Remember the balcony lamp and eyeball lights that I bought last time? They are fitted to the ceiling too.

Kinda like the nature look of the balcony light. Hope this will blend well with the mini fountain that I plan to put here.

And remember about the ZENcelo Full-Flat Switch that I bought last time also? They are alse have been fitted.

Talking about mini fountain at balcony, it also needs electricity supply for water pump, water filter and submersible lamp. So in my wiring plan last time, I did include an additional power point at balcony to be put here. But since this area is exposed to rain, I need to get a weatherproof outdoor power socket.

So welcome to my new house – my Casa Idaman. Well, not just yet. Still need to clean it up first, and the painting work will come after that. At first I just want to use the original colour of the paint, and patch the wall area that has been hacked.

But there are so many area to be repainted, where I might as well just repaint the whole house. At the moment, I’m kinda having a headache of what colour to choose to paint my house.

So until then, this house will definitely welcome you as a guest.

    the fan installation is included in my wiring quotation. my contractor just give a lump sum amount. not sure how much just for fan installation.
