  • Hacking usually takes 2 days in a apartment or HDB renovation.
  • After hacking, all the debris will be removed by the workers.
  • Sands, cement, protective papers (to lay over after flooring works, which will protect the tiles from damages), pipes (for toilets and kitchen use) and tiles will be delivered for the tiling works.
  • The pictures above show that the floor is already in bare statue where the previous tiles were removed.
  • 1st stage of the electrical work is completed.  Old wires and lighting fixtures are removed and new wires are installed.  Some simple lightings are installed for temporary use.
  • The new false ceiling is also installed to cover up the electrical wirings.  Lights will be installed in the later stage.

  • You can see that some pipes were installed in the toilet prior to applying the cement.  All the pre-installed pipes will be hidden under the cement and tiles.
  • Unfortunately, the big PVC sewage pipe cannot be hidden or conceal due to HDB renovation guidelines.

  • This room is the princess room for the 6 years old daughter of the homeowner.
  • The empty white sack bags are for collecting rubbish.

  • The master toilet will be one of the highlight of the renovation.
  • Notice some copper pipe is already installed and ready for cement and tiles to be overlaid.
