Update on Colonial Knob progress January and February 2014

Update: 1 Feb: End door is now working and bathroom door is able to be opened and closed: Thanks Bruce ZL2ABC.
More progress on the fence, with much of the old barbed wire removed and the grounds cleared and mown. Looking in the gate it looks like a tidy garden area. All wood, wire, concrete, rubbish and debris have moved to the pile near the gate (out of sight) and it is looking repectable.
Progress is being made on the plumbing system and the tank will be installed very soon. The old tank is planned to be put back into use at a lower level.
