    most of them operates like main con. the main con will sub plumbing, electrical, tiling works, etc to their sub-cons. my contractor handles the carpentry works themselves at their workshop. i think it is unrealistic to expect them to do everything themselves. of course, one should hold the main con responsible for the quality of work done and rectification, if necessary.

    my contractor gives a 5 years warranty for work done in writing.

    Make sure you get a penalty clause thrown into the contract so that the contractor has incentive to make the deadline.

    I used a company called Interstructure Design (ISD) in Joo Chiat thinking they were more reputable (featured in design magazines). As it turned out, they were pretty lame. My project was 5 months past deadline- they claimed subcontractor problems. Got run around bs from then. had to get lawyer to threaten sue before they got serious. Please avoid - reallybad experience with this co.
    Good luck.

    Mine is quite good (in my opinion lah) & gave pretty good advice, etc. Came around to help out for small, small problems too -- without charge for the small favors (e.g. drill holes).

    Dun want to advertise here, but if threadstarter (poohbear, I think) still needs... pls PM me.

    kind of late to be talking about penalty clause when your contractor is delayed by several weeks?

    aiyo so many posts no answers.

    I had a pleasant time with my contractor. Recommend it to one of my friends, also pleased with the worksmanship.

    BUT the delivery was delayed for both of us, by around a couple of weeks. I did it with de jenn interiors and woodworking.

    Pics of my place can be found at pisduck.com under galleries.
