welcome gpa. where are you located? If you haven't already figured it out, north la is literally crawling with small mills. Some of us have kilns, but nothing as large as 28 ft.

gpa there are 3 possibly 4 mills in the eastern part of union parish that have small kilns, but nothing nearly as big as you are talking about. Two home-made solar kilns, slow but cheap to operate, one nyle commercial currently being installed. All limited to 12 ft lengths.
What kind of mill ??

GPA ...did I maybe talk to you the other day on the phone and refer you to the Timber Framer in Texas? Did that not work out?

yes, I did but  they could not help with the wood size and the time frame. they are building houses and are not working the mill as hard. so I am looking into long term use of a kiln.
thanks
