The process of this renovation seem a bit slow, right?

Now, let's buckle up and move forward the renovation stage.

After the hacking and demolition, things will go very fast.


After purchasing the items for the house, a good shopping trip thou, put on hold for all delivery first until it is time for them to deliver it over. You wouldn't want everything to come in at the wrong time because there is no where you to put your items safely!

The priority is getting the level one and wet area to be completed as soon as possible. So that, the rest of the contractor can move in without delaying the project.

Enjoy the photos for The Ongies reno process!

Coordinating different contractors are a big challenge, especially when you engage other party and not your designer side. Hiccups are bound to have, it is important the overall renovation completed with happiness and not anger against one another.

If there is unhappiness, it is a must to sound out because being able to communicate will make everyone communicate better.

Because hubby work as commercial photographer, he have more free time to check on the progress and making the workers feel comfortable so that it is easy to communicate with them in good terms.

So far, everyone are working fine and get along very well. It is a blessing for all.
