We have begun work on a new addition at our farm! We are expanding our current picnic shelter to add more eating space, PLUS room for a corn box and straw maze play area on the back. If you remember my previous post about Sawing Logs, this is the special project that the lumber will be used for. I think it is so fun that we will be building this addition using lumber off of our own land!
Last week I posted about our sawmill experience here on the farm but I didn’t get a chance to share my photos and video of loading the logs that we were able to sell. Making our own lumber has turned out to be a rather SLOW, but very rewarding experience! I can’t wait to post photos of the final product of what we (and by WE, I mean the guys of course!) build with it. 🙂
The logs we sold consisted of mainly walnut (seems to be a very high demand for it right now) and some white oak. The process of loading them on to the log truck took the guys all day and looked a little dangerous to me! Still, it was pretty interesting to watch.
My father-in-law, Dean, and bro-in-law, Daniel, having way too much fun!
