First and foremost, as most of you would do, get back to work. The Sawmill survived the fire and I still have a few logs to saw. Luckily my entire stock of dry wood did not burn. I did lose about 75% however. So I have to get more cut and drying. In the couple days before the fire I had cut and stacked about 1500 board feet of wood. Those stacks were the first to burn. So this afternoon I got some cut and will stack in the attached garage.
Right now I am just sawing beetle kill pine. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I will get some oak, poplar, elm, cedar and maple sawed. I did lose my entire stock of everything besides beetle kill pine.
Of course tool procurement is also top priority. The extremely necessary tools first while they clean up the mess. Hopefully I can get caught up on my orders and will be able to start the building.
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the words of encouragement and suggestions for the new shop. Always up for newIideas.
Thanks for reading
