Rob Brown reports in: "Morning lads,

Job done for the 1st cab off the rank for this Huts and Tracks Community Fund.

Cost of this restoration. Around $2,600 including helo flight in with one load of gear. Timber for rebuilding the rotten window side was under $100. Flashing material cost around $100. Helo was $1,700 and then the rest went on screws, food and fuel for volunteers, nails, sealant, etc., Volunteer time: 28 hours times 3 people over 2 days. We had to tell Geoff to go to bed as he was still trying to work at 10pm by torchlight."

Great work, guys! (5 photos)
