    Default How easy is it to convert a mickymouse to a temporary 2bedded?

    For example this type of small apartment where the living room is large enough to put a single bed for visitors, especially when you or your tenant have relatives in another country who wishes to visit.

    I put an attachment of the floorplan, how easy is it to add some relocatable wall with doors?

    Very interesting idea. Can it be done in Singapore?
    I thought SG condos very strict over modifications some even don't allow put clothes in the balcony.

    Can be done, just don’t let kapo neighbours complain. Some layout still have space for living hall, even after partition a room.
    If prices between 1 bedrm and 1 bedrm + study not much diff. I say take with study, easier on the layout, ventilation, and costs..etc etc etc

    Balcony affects exterior presentation of the condo so some may be more particular. But hanging clothes usually no problem.

    The interior of the unit is up to you as private owner. But do consider carefully as not all tenants can fit in for the sub bedroom. More for own use.

    No kelong no guni.
    More kelong = more guni.

    How about soft partitions, like curtains? I think it's doable and it's been in the back of my mind for a while (haven't actually done it, though).

    I think the older 1 bedders about 700-800 sqft are possible candidates to "turn" into "2 bedders".

    Mine is a 452 sqft 1+1
    I seal up my study room with concrete cement wall and rent out as a common room
    But this type you cannot ask for those normal condo common room pricing since it is smaller

    i'm guessing it's not actually concrete cement you used , but a drywall for partition.
