It took a month because I could only meet the developer's contractor on Saturdays. It took two rounds for me to get all the rectifications done. By then, I was very angry with my ID because I find her suggestions not great. We had a quarrel over Whatsapp but that was because I realised she kept forgetting my instructions, and kept increasing price. I decided I had enough and told her I would like to terminate. I was wondering if that would wake her up a little.
She didn't and I decided to terminate the working relationship with her since she clearly didn't put much emphasis on my project.
Moving onto another contractor (no ID this time round), we spent January getting quotation approved and visiting my house to have a clear understanding of the space. He made some suggestions based on the last drawings by the ID and we agreed and proceeded with the work in late February.
However, I didn't expect the COVID-19 case would happen. Also, the contractor's schedule is getting slower and slower. A 3 weeks' work became a 1 month's work. In addition, the carpenter whom I liaised with was stuck in his country and couldn't get in before their Movement Control Order took effective.
Sigh.. hence my renovation work was stuck at rectifications stage until the restrictions are lifted (my country also had a restricted work order).
RENOVATIONS ARE TERRIBLE!!!!! Please share with me your woes!!
