Honestly, the kids really didn’t get the best room on the floorplan package from our developer. The size of the room was very small and it had no window at all. It looked more like a warehouse, only even warehouse would be better. Imagine the kids being put in a box like a cricket used to be kept in matchbox. The room indeed looked more like a matchbox.
I really had to think hard to make it as humanly as possible so I asked the architect to design a window looking into the living room and I told my general contractor that no matter what the room has to have its own aircon (usually in other apartments in our complex, the aircon would be placed in living room and master bedroom. And 2 aircons is a max). I have my wishes came true with compromises of course.
Putting the window in the room was not a real problem, we just have to mind when we want to open it fully extended as it might bump into the door. The bigger problem was installing the aircon as it conflicted with water sprinkler (so we had to get the sprinkler slightly moved and extended and of course paid quite an amount to the building management), created a hole on the master/kids bedroom wall for the aircon pipe to get through from the kids room through the master bedroom and another hole on the wall to make it end up in the bathroom. The pipe route is almost as long as the silk road but I’m happy with the end-result and Raissa seems to enjoy her room so much too. Let’s hop into my jumping bean’s room…
What’s left to get for this room is a study desk, which will go behind the door under the book shelves. And, I have to start thinking on what/how to change the layout in a few years to accommodate 2 jumping beans. Hopefully by then, we will have a new home on land. Aaamiinnn..
