A photographic journey.

Greg, and Damien's dog, check the level.
The person in orange shirt and short hair is Pip Smith, the shop's main architect and also parner in the buiding company building the shop.
Graham (principal mechanic), Mark, and Ken. Ken opened the shop originally in 1988 (then called K & M Ward Cycles). Mark worked part time for Ken for a couple of years, then bought the shop in 1991 when Ken moved from Moruya. A last-chance photo in the old shop before things get serious.
Bethany (Mark & Dana's daughter) lacing a wheel. (Yes Steve, that's your wheel). We're in a bit of a rush to finish odd jobs before moving out into the storeroom.
The base bricks need to be done before the slab can be poured.
Filled, compacted. Looking from the south east corner of the shop.
The view from the office.
The windows are out, the top of the wall is down.
The new skylight works well.
Standing on the outside looking in. Sorry Chisel.
The main steel beams were lifted into position by crane.
This is the night that Mark decided to leave the lights on. The switch is in the corner, to the left of the roller door. While the way out, is just to the right of the photo.
This is the view from the back door of our storeroom, where we're now operating from.
We were dining in the carpark to celebrate someone's birthday, and were treated to this spectacle. That's the staircase going in.
Looking towards the front door. The fixed glass panel is in place, the sliding door is still to be fitted.
Looking across to the Mower Centre.
Now (soon) we'll be able to ride to work and freshen up when we arrive. We didn't even have hot water previously.
The windows are taking shape, the scaffold still obscures the idea somewhat.
Upstairs, before the Gyprock.
The view will narrow when the walls are finished, but will get higher when the fabric is trimmes around the window frame.
Andrew's a professional building inspector as well as Moruya Team Bicycles rider. He's off duty here though. Looking towards the shower recess.
Orange for the main front window, blue for the rest.
The power was re routed to allow the lines near our shop to be turned off for 5 days. That cost three grand.
Greg and Damien in the office.
Thanks to Randolph who was visiting for taking this and the next few photos.
