Finally got a quotation from this second contractor. We actually dropped a note into our neighbour’s (they used his service as well) mailbox, and they were kind enough to reply and explained that they were satisfied with his level of service, price and reliability.
Anyway, the quotation is not complete in that it does miss out some key components.
The quotation as it stands is RM108k plus another about 23k for our kitchen cabinets. The key components not included in this quotation would add up, I suspect to at least another RM.10-15k.

These are the things he missed out:

And more which I can’t think of now, but surely will happen.
We will probably end up not doing all the stuff as quoted due to budget constraints. Working out what we can do without, or compromise on.
