Doll houses cater for girls at Tatura Community House’s childcare centre. Boys at the centre will soon have their playtime needs met as well.ASHLEIGH WILLIAMSON July 7, 2014 3:35am
Tatura Men’s Shed quartet Ian Deaville, Jason Carter, Tom Maher and Max Smith have almost finished building 12 toy garages for the childcare centre.
Shed members built 20 doll houses for the centre a month ago.
‘‘We’ll tackle anything,’’ Mr Deaville said.
‘‘It’s good to be able build things to give to people in the community.’’
Mr Deaville designed the toy garages.
‘‘We went through a few books and couldn’t find anything, so I just made it up in my head,’’ he said.
Mr Maher has painted the garages blue, green, purple, red and yellow.
Mr Deaville said cutting pieces and assembling one garage took about two hours, while painting one took longer than that alone.
‘‘They need two to four coats, depending on the paint,’’ he said.
Tatura Men’s Shed has been open for about two years and has more than 50 members.
Members work in the shed on Tuesdays, Thursdays and the occasional Saturday morning.
‘‘But if we have a project that needs finishing, if I’m not doing anything at home I will ring Max up and we will put in half a day on a Wednesday,’’ Mr Deaville said.
