A clean MRI and a whack of logs
« on: February 07, 2007, 07:38:50 PM »
Stephanie finished 24 weeks of chemo last Tuesday and had a final MRI on Wednesday and a few days ago we got the results back. The report came back clean. Yes that is correct .... clean. We are so blessed and it is an answer to prayers. In one sense it has been one bad fall and winter but we also have learned how we are blessed with friends and family .... and incredible network of support.

If you can see from this picture that Steph has a full head of hair, while it is short it is full.



We fired up the sawmill and Coleman has been cutting wood the past few days while I am at work. He cut 2000 linear feet of 1x4's for a friends roofing project. It was a great way for him to get him back into the swing of things after about 4 months away from the mill.

The night of our good news about the MRI we decided to get the ball rolling regarding our proposed pole barn to store all of our junk under including the pair of pickup trucks and tractors. It is amazing the "tools" you accumulate when building a house. I started drawing the 4 pages of plans using Powerpoint around 8 PM and submitted them to the county building department the next morning. It was a lot easier process the second time around. We should break ground in a week or two. It is going to be 36x46 feet. Nothing fancy, just pressure treated 6x6's and pre-fab trusses.

The big news today is that the log ferry left us a present today. I got home from work and we had 24 logs in three nice piles. The large tree is a red oak in four or five 8.5 ft sections. It was about 36 to 40 inches on the the butt end. The logs are knott free. There are also smaller white oak and elms.

Well the log ferry actually was Ed M., our good friend who has been helping us along the way as we built our house. He is 80+ years old, still runs equipment, and knows a thing or two about everything.

This should provide us with a few days of milling and some nice quarter sawn oak.

Thanks Ed.

P.S. He has another lot to clear shortly and we should be getting another whack of logs. Bring em' on!!!

I wanted to thank everyone for the replies.  Through all of this I have met some great people via the Forestry Forum (both in person and online).  Last fall when we were under a crunch to get into our timber frame after our other house was sold we had 30 + people out on some weekends showing up to help.  Some were FF folks even from out of state.

Thank you to you all

Joel and Stephanie

P.S.  I guess it is time to break out the log end sealer.
