Yup, I normally would have been sawing instead of being "laid up".  :-X

I was a bit surprised to see this post i made in 2018  pop up but pleased to say that all the suggestions were very helpful. The mill did go back into the barn for the 2019-2020 winter but is back out now with a new home! I just recently completed the build of a  dedicated mill shed. While i would love to be able to say i built it myself, given my limited carpentry skills and physical limitations, i had to contract it out. I did the hard part, i wrote the check!


I will close in the back wall and probably one end within the next few weeks using pine siding that i recently sawed. May put a couple of windows in the back wall for light and ventilation. Next winter I will see. Tarps or temporary walls for the remaining open walls.
