Very nice.  I also noted that wide pine flooring.  Bet it smells good in there.

David,

   You did not mention how you were going to display the mantels. Are they going to on permanent shelving or on movable racks. 

   If you use movable racks and you need the extra space (Who doesn't need extra space?) you can keep adding racks until you only have one aisle left and can push the racks up tight against each other and leave the aisle where you want it and still see the mantels on both sides. You can store a whole lot more slabs that way.

     I'm with FishPharmer on this one.  Poston is being modest (believe it or not!)  He's doing a great job on that conversion.  Top quality workmanship, too.

We also have had the pleasure of viewing his operation.  There is always much kidding here on the FF but the fact is, he has a top notch setup, but don't tell him that I said so.

Everyone of you know this.....it is so hard to get something done for your self if you have a sawmill.
This is a holiday weekend and the folks was coming in pretty steady off and on to pick up lumber or order Pine siding.

I did manage to get a little something done on my showroom but not much.

I thought about my gable vent all morning. On the inside will be screen to keep birds from building in the place.
On the outside, I built a 1 piece vent out of Cedar and to spruce it up a little and I did a Cedar weave. It really stands out......zoom in for better look.
Got the right side trimmed out in Cedar too.



 

 

And last I put....what I call wind brackets so when my doors are opened or closed a burst of high wind won't blow the bottom of the doors away from the building. Could save some repairs.



 

 

Now....waiting on Monday. Y'all have a good holiday!  :)

Once you get it all closed in, put in a couple of large room dehumidifiers to help keep your inventory dry.

My residence is in a subdivision.....can't do things there.
But across the road is our farm. As long as we are classified as a farm we can build about anything. ( barns and sheds ).
If we need power....then we need a permit and inspection.
