Thanks for the ideas. My favorite tip in all of this is the use of a beam to span 30'. I would like to span 24' and could not figure out how to do it. I must say that I'm a little jealous of the sheds. (Just kidding)

No need to worry about being jealous.  I got a pretty good shed and I am still jealous, esp of those big openings.... Banjo

D12 series 3  28hp at the wheels and 25 at the pto  a fine lil tractor. needs brakes though,
I grew up on AC tractors. I have never heard of a D12. Must be a collectors item. Plus the same paint scheme as your mill.

How much headroom inside for the mill are you allowing? I like the idea of the raised tie chord, I used a similar design on a wood stove shed covering my outdoor Central Boiler

Wow! thanks beenthere!  I have never seen this,  I was going on what I was told,, it does have good power for a little tractor,  picked it up for a mere 1800 bucks in the late 80's  less than 2000 hrs.  still hard to believe the brakes are shot, but they are,  if all goes well, I will get this done before the freeze hits.  As far as the shed goes,
a 12' ceiling is a good height, if lifts are to be in and out.  A drive through is a pretty good idea, just make plans for a close slab rack, the work triangle is critical for time in the log.   
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

You have to first upload the photos to your photo gallery, then link to it in the post.

This is done to ensure that your photo will remain available years from now so we don't wind up with red Xs where the photo has gone missing.

Here's a link to a guide on how to do it: http://www.forestryforum.com/board/index.php/topic,61788.0.html

You can upload .Jpg files no problem.  The upload process is a bit different on this forum, but nothing you can't handle.
It's the going that counts not the distance!

If you are putting in a large opening for the logs make sure the beam above it is large enough to handle the snow  load.  This last winter was much worse than usual and just in Barron county thousands of building collapsed from the snow load.  Mostly pole sheds.  But some homes and lots of barns as well.

What size beam would be enough to support a 16 span for the side open to load logs?

Impossible to say, need more info. I'm assuming rafters are supported by the beam?, how far is it to the other support end of the rafters (rafter span)? Overhang, how much? Snow load in lbs per square foot? Wood species and grade?

Rafters would be 14 long with 1 overhang. So 12 wide. Full 8x8 vertical posts. Strapped and steel on roof. We have some snow load up here by times. Also 45 degree angle supports on either side of span as well.

Find your snow load in pounds per square foot, it is probably published online or available from the local building dept or truss shop. "some snow load" is something between 10 and 300 lbs/sq ft x 112 sq foot area bearing on the beam.

From what I can find the snow load in my area would be around 20 lbs per square foot.
