Apologies for the lack of updates in the main page for at least one month! We have been really busy with the whole renovation process and I have been staying over at Feng’s house and since editing of photos is only limited to my house hence no updates until now!
Photos were uploaded last week to my flickr so if any one of you need any update, there will be a place to go to! Else you can probably head over to the link: Our Barn located at the bar above for latest update on our progress from Feng. 🙂
So it was about one week after the lightings were installed, on 7 July, our carpentry works were up~! So here’s a look at our more completed look! 🙂
On the right is the view from the front door’s point of view while the left shows the carpentry work done at the front door area which includes the shoe cabinet to the left and the household shelter feature wall on the right. The door hiding the household shelter was not up during the time of photo-taking. 🙂
An overall view of Our Barn from the living/dining room! 🙂
Our kitchen with the glass divider is finally up and we are so loving it as it allows light to enter from all directions giving the illusion of space for our small house. 🙂
The table will be our “breakfast” table which will most likely end up putting lots of junk and also the convenience of throwing anything we have on hand on it upon entering the house. 😀
Here’s our full-height cabinet/storage space! The only storage space with the most storage area in the Barn! The mirrors on the cabinet was not up at the time of photo-taking. 🙂
Our TV console and feature wall together with our Ikea pendant light. 🙂
Our entertainment room! Sort of. Hahaha! We will be having a 32″ TV mounted on the wall and of ‘cos having both our lovely PCs on the study table. This will probably be where we will hang out most of the time considering we used our PCs like 24/7. Oops. :X
Cabinet to the bottom-right is used to house our routers and what-nots inside so as to hide them from view. But both of us think this room will be the messiest no matter how we cable-manage everything. :X
Our Master Bedroom (MBR) wardrobe which both of us and everyone else thinks will never be enough for both of us considering I will be taking up most of the space in the wardrobe. Haha! Guess Feng might force me to do more spring cleaning for my clothes in future to make way for more new clothes. :X
My little corner in the MBR! My dressing table! Feng gave me the freedom to decide the configuration for the dressing table since I will be the one using it most of the time. Mirror was once again not up at the time of photo-taking. 🙂
Carpentry works in the bathroom! This is a view of our MBR bathroom and the long cabinet will be used to put TWO basins! Influenced by the various resorts we visited, we MUST have two basins. Haha! 😀
Remember the laminate trimming that I mentioned previously that both Feng and I hated? Our ID has went ahead to rectify the issue after we raised it to him. He didn’t inform us on the change and didn’t gave us the choice to choose BUT luckily the new trimming fits lovingly so we didn’t blame him. He loves to give us surprises but we both think he is an ID bad for control freaks out there. Haha! 🙂
Lastly, a view from the walkway. 🙂
Will post up another series of photos for the next phase soon but I am just too tired to do anything much nowadays. Been having some small hiccups here and there and it was tiring for both of us. Renovation has kind of come to a halt for us already except for some rectifications here and there which can only be done on weekends since we have already locked up the house with our own lock. We both hope that all will go well for the remaining work to be done. We need a good rest before moving on to more plannings for our wedding. Phew.
For more miscellaneous photos from this series, please head over to my flickr. Thanks! Will try to update as and when I can. 🙂

Woohooo… it’s always so exciting to see houses come together and I like the cute name you’ve given to the home. “Our Barn” is definitely very unique.
The clean finish is also very, very awesome. Am lovin’ it!
Haha! ‘Cos we are Geeky Pigs = Piggeeks so our house has to be a barn then! 🙂
Me think the house is going to look nice, clean and bright now before the mess begins as we move stuffs in. Haha! 😀
Dropped by to say hi, I am RF’s JC classmate..got here via this google search result. I am currently renovating my place too =D
I like the white and wood feel design in your living room and kitchen. Are my eyes playing tricks on me or is the depth of the kitchen cabinet for the glass side is lesser than the typical standard of 600mm?
Your eyes are indeed playing tricks on you! We just measured the kitchen cabinet depth, they are 600mm =)
