Living lightly on the land starts with the selection of building materials and how you use them. Operating a portable sawmill lets me select dead and dying trees, as well as salvage blowdowns in our woodlot to use for building materials. It feels great to know where the lumber for our home and furniture came from. Now that I am sawing "in my spare time for fun and profit", many of my customers feel the same way. Milling lumber is a lot easier and cheaper than most people think. I'd welcome comments from forum members running sawmills, or questions from anyone interested in my experiences.
