A barns worth

Over the course of June we’ve been  busy putting the sawmill to use cutting up much of the dimensional lumber required to frame the barn. There’s been a lot of hard work involved moving heavy pieces back and forth from the sawmill to our lay down which is located in a breezy out of the sun area.

For those of you interested in seeing the process of turning a raw log into dimensional lumber here is a short stop photography video. Forgive the lack of sound.

    hi Aaron

    how long in real time would the log sawing have taken?

      It takes about 3 hours to mill a log of that size. Its fun though and you don’t notice the time passing.
