BUT, if you are planning to build your own mill, I'd suggest the band mill. Reason is they are pretty simple to fabricate, and set up. You can probably find a used one for a sensible price, a bit of basic maintenance, and you are in business. Chances that you can find a cheap used swing blade is pretty remote. Yes the blade running cost is generally higher, but for the cost of one new swing blade, you get several boxes of bands. plenty enough to cut out a cabin, before you need to send them out and get the resharpened. You also need a diamond wheel sharpener to touch up the carbide tips, which is another expense. Normally I'm a big advocate of the swing blades, but from what you have written, I'd point you at a band saw this time.
