The first job to be completed this week was to replace a section of the fence where the outside toilet was previously located. The toilet formed part of the boundary with our neighbor’s property, so when we removed it, it left a gap in the fence. It wasn’t too difficult a job since there were existing fence supports. Rather than just patching the gap, we took down all the old colourbond sheets in this section of the fence and replaced them with new sheets so there wouldn’t be any difference between the old and the new.
