Well...here it is the middle of February! Valentine Day is behind us but Cycle Therapy is still completely in LOVE with it's new space at the Station Building on Duncan Street. Most of the painting has been completed now...cabinets are being built for us...the floor should be finished by the end of the week. Every single day something is finished or almost finished and the excitement amongst the staff at Cycle Therapy is mounting. And...we have had an awesome crew of volunteers come forward to help with the move!
Dan Nugent from Ease-Ability Renovations, Ron, and David have a conversation about the finishing touches.
Mike Sevcoc checks out what is about to become the new location.
Don Skerrit electrician extrodinaire! Working on the lighting in the repair shop.
Henry, cement polishing magician, working hard on the first grind of the floor. You can also see the beautiful paint job of the walls and ceiling. Ivory wall...grey ceiling and trim. With a little bit of burnt orange here and there to keep it interesting!
Ron fixing up the staff washroom so the sink and toilet can be installed.
The Bike Fitting Room....the trim is up and painted and the room is close to complete.
This is the staff room...a quiet place to get away, eat lunch, take a moment. We have never had a room that is completely dedicated to allowing our staff to hide out and have their lunch. I have promised them....nothing in the staff room that should not be there!
Finally....the girls. They are a fixture at the store...usually in Sandra's office. We wanted to post this picture just because.
We have had a great crew of people working hard on the renovations. Clint and Rick, great drywallers. As well as Les. Ease-Ability Renovations (Dan, Ron and Simon) have been overseeing most of the renos and they can always be counted on to be responsive to our Bike Store vision. Even when it doesn't quite fit! Don Skerrit doing our electrical installations...a ready smile and a great attitude that helps us easily figure things out. Gordon Smith and his crew creating the counters and cabinets. Henry who is working hard on turning the cement floors into a work of art. Black Sheep Painting did a wonderful job figuring out exactly what to do and how best to make it all come together. And the Cowichan Green Community, our landlords, who have been supportive and lovely to work with. Everyone working on the space has been enthusiastic and as excited as we've been about this renovation. We look forward to seeing you at the new store when we open up....probably around the 8th of March.
The Crew at Cycle Therapy.
