well at the risk of sounding (not intended) off color you "got some nice equipment" there @Bindian  :)  It is only temporary, but curious if the side that flaps down a bit, is to the south?  can it be made to be adjustable and raised up at times.  just thinking out loud. cheers!  doc.

Off color is right Doc.  Too much equipment that isn't RED.  The side "that flaps down a bit" is secured to the fence for now.  I could secure it via ropes to trees on the other side of the fence for more late afternoon light.

That's a grand version of how I'm setting up to assemble my mill, then saw the lumber to build a permanent home. I have a 10x20 tent (roof and separate sides if needed). In that, once assembled, I'll saw and build the saw shed next to the tent. For light I have a string of 12V LED lights.

First log milled under the tarp.  

 As you can see, it's a little dim under the big top.

Doc,
   I got an old broken down CD player/boom box blaring Country music from the barn.  But the lights are developing as a must have.
My friend gave me a radio for my birthday.  It mounts under the canopy of the tractor.  Just gotta install it.

   Since its a woodyard/sawmill I started to comment on what kind of dancing to expect but I am trying to be a good boy so I bited my tongue. :D

  I guess if Brandi provides little whisk brooms to strap on everyone's feet and they go line dancing she can at least get the sawdust swept out of the barn every Saturday night. ;)

Good thing you bit your tongue.  You seem to do that alot.  Actually, a little sawdust on the floor makes better two steppin' and polkas.  Wooden floor dance halls use a little cornmill on the floor.

   I knew the steakhouses used to have your throw the peanut hulls on the floor and I heard it was actually good for the wood but being blessed with 2 left feet and married to a shy country girl who was the daughter of the Baptist preacher, I never got into the dance scene. I don't know about the cornmeal - I guess as long as they had extra after frying the catfish and making the hushpuppies and storing your catalpa worms in it if there was any left over you could put it on the dance floor. 

   Question: What kind of dancing do politicians do?
   Answer: Poll dancing.

Texas Roadhouse is the only place I have been to that lets you throw peanut hulls on the floor, but that is after you eat the peanuts.  But, it is so crowded, it's standing room outside waiting to get in.  I like to get there about 4 in the afternoon and be gone when the crowds start arriving.

some of the farm stores here do it on occasion, to make you shop there.  offer peanuts and let the hulls be thrown on the floor.  i do not like to do that, and prefer peanuts already hulled as i am the lazy type, and want an handful at a time in my mouth.  used to have a peanut barrel for boy scouts stuff, but one kid with an allergy and a mom who thought it was every ones responsibility to watch over him was enough to stop that tradition.  only reaction i ever saw was an anxiety one to eating something with peanuts, as he thought he had to go to the ed and get an epi pen shot.  he sat in the car, and never had any throat welling or difficulty breathing.  just anxiety.   :o

  Amazing how we shift from sawing or whatever to food ain't it. :D

 In Saudi street vendors cooked raw peanuts in salt in a wok over a ventilated gallon can as a brazier with charcoal. They took them out with a slotted spoon and shook most of the salt off to continue to use. They sold them in a rolled up computer print-out page for 1 riyal/tube (I guess that was about a cup of peanuts for 27 cents). They tasted like our salted Planter's Peanuts. I would visit the souks and buy raw peanuts in the shell and roast/parch them. I was paying 5 SR/kg or $1.30 for 2.2 lbs. One day I noticed they had shelled peanuts for sale also so I asked how much they were. The vendor told me "Five riyals per kilo." Well my Mama didn't raise no fool! If I could buy shelled ones for the same price as in the hull that was what I was going to do and did till I left there. I never understood the economics of their pricing but I was just a dumb infidel and I was not going to argue with them.

Round here it was sawdust on the floor and maybe a cuspidor or two,but most missed that and it just added a little color to the sawdust. :D

Here if you want peanuts then you need to mosy over to the hay pile and dig them out of a bale BEFORE the cows get to it, they will fight you for them.  Raw, dried on the vine, in the bale - best eating peanuts you will ever have and I am not joking.  Even the red skins are edible that way. But - that's probably more work than @doc henderson would like.   :D

I have vivid memories as a youth of making a hunting blind out of peanut vines from the field after harvest to hunt doves, sitting there in the hot sun eating those dried peanuts off the vines that the harvester missed. I agree; they are so tasty.
