Vertical Saw Mill Building Construction, Nov 12, 2012


Vertical Sawmill: Paul Moore, Ken Tupper and Reg Chester have begun work on a new building to house the vertical sawmill. It will be located next to the Lane Sawmill building on the Hwy 345 side. To figure out how much room would be required, they dragged out the sawmill frame and reassembled it just for measurements. The building will be 20 x 46, post and beam construction, with a shingle roof. Paul reported pouring 10 cubic yards of concrete to form a foundation to hold the saw in place. The site has been filled with soil and sand, graded and graveled.

More Roadway: Ken Tupper has begun to extend the Schoolhouse Road past the gas station. Soil from this work was used to fill and grade the new sawmill site. As time and weather permit, he will join that road with a new Saw Mill Road which will support traffic all the way to the present and new sawmills.
