Sawmill Shed Rebuilding

The first step in the rebuild process was to get building material. Arrangements were made to secure oak logs from a site clearing project and mill them at Al Gouldey's local sawmill.

The new beams were put on a low-boy trailer and brought to the mill to be set into place.

Once the new beams were in place the floor boards were ripped to size and nailed onto  the beam system. Old style cut nails were used for authenticity.

On 16 January 2021 the flooring lay down was completed.

The next step was to determine the roof line, acquire roof rafters, support posts, and LAM beams to span the two 23 foot openings for logs and cut boards to move through.
