This will probably take me a year or so, hope I live long enough to complete it(ha ha)

I am milling most of my wood myself with a chainsaw mill, lot of work but very satisfying.
Here are a few pics of some of the lumber and the chainsaw mill I use.

That looks like a good start and I hope it all works out without a hitch.

Hang in there! I have been busy with a house for the past 3 years, also milling all the timber myself. Still got a long way to go…

Great project, looks like something to be really proud of once it’s done.

Double the size! I have a 12’ x 20’ and a year later it is too small. Wished I went for at least 16’ x 24’ or bigger. Big heavy sigh!
