If you need to get a floorplan for your HDB apartment, you can get either an instant pdf copy for $5 or have one mailed to you for an extra $1 from HDB’s InfoWEB e-Service HERE.
For my foreign readers who are wondering what HDB stands for, it’s short for ‘Housing & Development Board’. You can read more from the official HDB site HERE.
Found this place after months of searching and viewing for a suitable apartment for me & my SO (=significant other). Key considerations? Near MRT, nearer to town quiet, unblocked, windy, decent size…
And so in the end we ended up with a HDB Executive Maisonette (EM). At 1560 feet, it was far bigger than the other HDB or condo apartments we went to view. And we get our his/her toilets. And a toy room… and a balcony where we can have BBQ gatherings.
Sounds really ideal until you start thinking about 1. the costs and 2. the extensive renovation needed. But anyway, it should be an interesting adventure and hopefully at the end of the process, we have our own cosy little (ok, not so little) abode for the next couple of years.
Decided to do up a reno blog to chronicle the renovation process and it will serve as a record for the bits and blobs of info I accumulate too. 🙂
