Saturday the 2nd of December was no ordinary day for our Tasbuilt team and our excited clients who participated in the 2017 competition, a chance to win a $10,000 shopping spree at Harvey Norman (Launceston). The big day began at 10.00am, with the draw scheduled to take place at 12.00pm. As clients entered the building, they were greeted with the tempting smell of roasting coffee, delicious monte carlos, and chocolate cupcakes. While waiting for the clock to strike 12.00pm, many clients toured our Display Homes, the 'Sheridan', and the 'Hardwick', while others huddled in the foyer sharing with one another their experiences with Tasbuilt. Amongst them where previous clients such as Mr. & Mrs Sands, and last year's winner, Mrs Elizabeth File, who won a Volkswagen Jetta.
Behind the scenes, Christian White from TDP was busily preparing for our clients who wished to join via Skype. On the big screen, they would be able to join in with those physically at our site and hear their names called out for the draw, by which their card would be placed in the raffle drum. It was a system that was to be fair and concise. Darren Rumble from Bendigo Bank had the honours of spinning the drum and presenting to all the lucky winner. The room fell silent as the slip was opened to reveal the name.
Mrs Johansen's face was aglow as her name was called. She had flown from Canberra a few days earlier, by which she sat down with our friendly staff to make her décor selection. Mr. & Mrs Johansen and their son Evan are planning on relocating to Tasmania in the near future, and in view of a smooth and enjoyable move, the Johansen's chose to build their dream home with Tasbuilt. With the assistance of our staff and a $10,000 Harvey Norman bonus, the Johansen's dreams of building will be made a reality.
