Completion of works!

Actually the works have been completed for some time already, but we haven’t been there for a while lately until today.

Will be updating the total and final cost of the renovation project in a while since I’m sure many of you will find it a useful reference for your own projects.

Some of the finishing left quite a bit to be desired actually, mostly cosmetic in nature. I would have thought our contractor would have finished all the touching up before handing the unit back to us actually.

Anyway, he will still be sending his work people over to perform more finishing work and fix a faulty window (one of the windows in the wet kitchen couldn’t be closed properly) before collecting the final instalment from us.

Living and dining room after completion. :)

Final cost

In such a rush today that we forgot to take more pictures, such as the auto gate for example.

    • Aircons were bought and installed by our contractor. As for lights and fans, we went to the big lighting and electrical goods store (Emart) at Nusa Bestari and wrote down on paper what we wanted for each of the rooms. Our contractor then did the buying and installation for us, and billed us after. He charged for installation of course, but as far as we can tell, not more for the lights and fans then what the store was charging. He did recommend that we buy from there for the selection though.
