Converting a 5-room HDB to such may end up with not optimising space and there are corners and wastage due to limitation due to design or inability to knock down some walls, etc.
Whoa... looks like it is not easy. So many limitations. I guess I will cross the bridge when I come to it. It is good that I tossed the idea here so I know what to expect if I want to do it that way.
Yep, when redesigning the unit, must take into consideration other additional things like water piping / outlet (for kitchen, for laundry), electricity sockets and lightings, windows, toilets, rubbish chute, etc.
