Once you have your design peg, your to-do lists, and materials ready, then it’s time to create a timetable of all the major and minor renovations you want to make for your home.
Your timeline still depends on the overall design of your home, the scope of work you want to do, and the area/s or space/s you want to renovate. Gila Salvador of Madhouse Studio designed a 22-square-meter condo unit in 45 days. This is just for designing the space with the theme of ‘beach vacation living’ and creating more storage space like cabinets, tables, and other multi-functional furniture.
Interior designer Rock Robins managed to renovate a 64-square-meter condominium in Makati in just 3 weeks time due to his/their client’s request. The design peg was Singaporean modern design, with an additional special request to make space for a small office. Due to the time constraint, major renovations were not able to be accommodated. But overall, the whole peg was done and executed, leaving the client satisfied.
If you want to transform your condo unit from top to bottom, then construction may take as fast as three months to as long as a whole year. This all depends on whether or not you have a clear vision, a proper plan, and a skilled team to make the magic happen. But most importantly, take into account the homeowner guidelines discussed before.
Settle all the necessary requirements, submit your renovation plans, the scope of work and specifications—all for the approval of the property management office first before you proceed with construction. There are also workers’ ID permits, construction bonds, and monitoring fees to consider.
Once you’ve settled all the requirements, only then can you start the labor-heavy work in renovating your condominium.
