Very nice, very straight logs.  Ice cream logs.

The interesting part is that the cut list was

2 quarter by what ever the log would give for width for siding, with a couple 12 quarter by what ever quarter sawn no pith so it was a pretty easy cut list.

The 2/4 stuff has been laided out on 4X4s to "weather"  so it will look like old barn wood by august. The 3 inch stuff is for the wrap around veranda floor that was 8 feet wide.  Its all for a rustic timber frame replica "restoration". The only thing original is the old stone foundation but it will be a pretty spectacular house when done.

Based on its location I think it may have been an old stage route stopping house. The barn foundation is still in good shape and some of the oak beams from that have been salvaged. The barn and black smith lean-to rebuild is next summers rebuild project.  

Was a 2 story 7 bed room with servants quarters in attic  1890s vintage build. This cutting session was the first. More larger size pine logs are coming when the road bans are off. Thats what the big timber will get cut out of.

Also need some large fir or hemlock for the main beams and joist which will be coming this summer as well.
If you ain't livin on the edge you are takin up way to much room. Of course at my age if I get too close to that edge any more theres a good chance I may fall off.

This one is done! 10 hours of cutting All spruce. 60, 2"X6"X8' and 320, 1" X what ever X 8' wind slabs Average was about 8" to 10". 

Put on Turbo 7* carbide when i set up the mill and its still on there and cutting very well. Id say cutting rate is 15 to 20% faster but will have to do a few jobs to get an accurate estimate for that. I did finish about 3 hours faster than I had thought. Excellent cut quality as well. I am impressed!

I wonder if that trailer was used for round bales of hay.

You nailed it CFarm! It was and still is used to move round bales. He has 2 of them To haul his hay and straw home for just over 200 moma cows.

All the lumber I cut this trip out to his place is for rebuilding wind slab fences for his wintering corrals and paddocks. He has a few loads of logs ordered (3 I think) to cut more slabs and lumber for 3 new lean-too type cattle shelters in his calving paddocks as well as 2x6 and 2x8 to renew his corrals in general.

Ill be back out at his place as soon as the crop is in the bin this fall.

They don't haul it like that in the West either.  We don't need stakes to hold lumber on the truck here.

Spent today sawing some 4x17x12 and 4x14x12 for a timber frame

 

 
I used the old scrap piece over the clamp trick so I could flip the cant without boogering it up.

I run a 100 foot extension cord from my dad's building you can see in the background.

I just bought 17 acres that is 9 miles from my current location. It's right along a busy state route. I have the choice of single or three phase there. I'm not gonna now how to react to all that room once I get moved there.

That's awesome man great to hear.  You might think it's alot of room, but just wait lol . I thought that the first driveway I put in was gonna be enough, but it wasn't even close to enough after a short while lol
Soon as you can put a sawdust blower in.  SOOOO much better.  Woodmaster sells one for a very reasonable price and it's very simple to install.  My youtube channel has a video of it.  Click on the youtube icon by my avatar and it'll bring you to my channel.
