Since my hubby & I have moved here three years ago, the sawmill has gotten quite the workout. We've built a porch & an addition on to our trailer. My FIL even built a garage before we moved here & we replaced my inlaws deck this summer.
In the works is a garage for my BIL (who works on cars here - he actually lives in Boston) & eventually a new house for us. As to my FIL's retirement, he is planning on selling lumbar cut from the property.
Needless to say, the arrival of the sawmill was a huge source of excitement for my boys. It arrived on the back of an 18-wheeler.
The very amusing part of this whole thing...my inlaws received a call from the driver. He was three miles away but he refused to come further. He had orders not to drive on dirt roads. You cannot get to our house unless you drive on a dirt road. They are nice - for the most part - but definitely not paved. They called the main office & found out it was camp roads they didn't want them on, so he was finally given the green light to come on, but I really think he was pretty nervous about the whole thing. I figured if they could deliver our trailer here, a regular 18-wheeler shouldn't have a problem.
There were two very large pallets on the back of the truck that my FIL had to unload. Thankfully he has a tractor & was able to do that. They did have to break the pallets down. I sent B to get some photos for me.
