    Thumbsup Budget of $20 k for renovation. is it enough?

    How is the renovation for only $ 20k as we only intend to take up renovation loan for $20k. Anyone can share their package for the $20k renovation?
    Any recommended contractor? We approached to ID before, personally think that ID not possible to minimise my cost to $20k. They always quote about $ 25k. Perhaps contractor is much cheaper, right?

    if you dont have much design concept then getting contractor is better. ID is if you want more of those fancy stuff.

    mine was pretty basic and i paid $25k after discount, IDs are normally between 30k - 50k. That's the market rate.

    i think better if you could list down the things you want and ask for a quote for say $15k to $18k. My friend told me that there may be additional fees (workmanship or material cost) if the client chooses to change the materials or method to achieve certain look.

    Another friend did 4rm for $23k with quite major alteration. Depends on size and items you want I guess. Also remember to factor in furniture.

    The house type for my friend who did their matrimonial home for $23k is DBSS - so some works like tiling etc were done already.

    No floor tile or wall hacking is needed.

    maybe without the ID & going direct to the individual contractors, the cost can be lower.

    if yours is a premium, i assume it comes with flooring, that will save quite a bit and you can use the money saved for other stuffs. Basically, its always carpentry works that make reno costs higher. If you wanna keep within budget, avoid carpentry works, get ready made furnitures.
