neighbour1: family of six + one maid + three dogs + four cycles, of all these people its just one of these dogs that keeps barking incessantly
its because they don't let it hang out with another dog or take it out for a walk
neighbour2: family of five plus one dog, this dog hates the dogs in the other unit and vice versa
one floor above: some DIY infected dude who keeps hammering,nailing shit to the wall dropping heavy things
one floor below : families full of screaming,wailing,semi dying kids
in between: me trying to concentrate and work from home
Question is: is this normal for most HDB estates? #countingbeads
in my new place they are painting the blocks, but don't ask me why they have to drill different areas of the block randomlyn while painting ...
the older HDB walls are thinner and the design was more for mass production, vs those newer blocks that have more privacy and less noise from neighbors carry over .. like in Sengkang/Punggol area.
and newer blocks are so nice some have balcony and some, you don't even see the rest of the floor residents at all, maybe only 2 houses next to you will even bump into you.
move to a newer HDB?
ps, did you try the dog whistles which can shut dogs off for a while?
I am not sure if my unit is new or old, the walls are quite thin, no balconies, and only 2 houses for immediate neighbours, but my bedroom windows open out towards other units and thats the source of all this noise.
I just re-contracted for another year about 4 months ago and it's only a room rental agreement, not sure what my cut and run options are at this moment and what I will lose.
