New Timber Flooring Installed

You would of remembered our last post about the new roof, well this time around we wanted to say thank you to another local business for installing timber flooring in our admin building. Although we did have a temporary fix with a second hand carpet, the timber flooring will provide us with the more permanent solution. Not that we are not satisfied with the carpet fitting but the durability of the timber will give us more options to what we can use the room for. For example for our tap dancing class etc.

We did consider installing it before the temporary fix (carpet), but when we were looking for timber flooring installers in Perth we found out that it was out of reach when you look at the price. Though we completely agree that you get what you pay for. Timber is a very high quality product, so we had no doubt that its a good investment in the long run but we just didn’t have enough funding after spending some of the budgeted amount on other things.

The local business that helped us out reached out after seeing our first post about the burnt roof and the rest is history. They called us up and wondered if they can help out by giving us a discounted price for the timber materials and also, on top of that, they offered us free labour! It’s hard to believe isn’t it? We ask what they wanted in return and their answer was nothing! They wanted to do it to help out the community.. whole heartedly.

After talking a bit more to the business owners, it turned out that both of them had kids who attended our centre in the past! They wanted to show how grateful they are of what we are doing and that their kids are proof that the program does really work.

We are forever grateful for all of the help we’ve received in the last couple of months. People from all walks of life had been very generous.

Burnt Roof Repaired In Time

As some of you would know, our admin building was damaged by the recent fire last summer. Although most of the part has been fully rebuilt, form ground up, the building’s roof still needed work to be done.  Well, we are glad that announce that the roof has been fully restored since last summer and to be honest it looks better than ever!

How much did it set us back you might ask? Nothing, zilch! Seriously? Yes! How did we get the job done for free? Well, thanks for the support of a local roof restoration business – it was made possible. But we will forever be very grateful to this business. So visit their site and support them in return whole heartedly. Just as they did with us.

With the roof being restored just in time, it allows us to run as per the original schedule. This will avoid any rescheduling of class/activities time which may cause difficulty to many parents. Especially with the upcoming holidays.

If some of you remember, the old roof design was the traditional cross hatched and the colour was a dull red/orangish. It has been replaced with a vivid amber colour and new/modern design. You’d be forgiven to think it is another place altogether! Many have actually said this.

When the Transit Camp’s committee was deciding the roof’s material, it was not easy at all. Presented to us was three high quality material and several superb designs to go with it. In the end, the decision was in favour for the modern and vivid design. But with the roofing restoration now fully completed. Many won’t complain about the chosen design and material.

Once again, we’d like to give credits (when credits are due!) to the roofing contractor who donated their time and materials to make the makeover a reality. To those who are attending Transit Camp this year would no doubt appreciate the work done by this awesome local business.
