Falling timber, putting it on the mill and building the addition
Being an ex timber faller my brother in law asked me to fall some old growth ceder on his mothers property. I feel the trees and yarded to the portable mill. We cut it up into 1x6's and left it rough.

We built this addition to his home and put the cedar on the ceiling. We also have some locus, juniper, blue pine and some doug fir. All cut on the mill and taken out of the woods of Oregon.
Here is the front door. Dan kicking back in his new digs. The center post was the inspectors idea since he didn't think a 18x10 old growth would span...
Here is looking west. Cedar on the ceiling, juniper and pine on the walls. The construction is post and beam and is all rough cut from timber we fell...
This is the outside. The post is ponderosa pine as is the siding. All but on the mill.
Here I am cutting the butt log off due the curve. We got some nice clear cedar out of this that was about 16 feet per board.
Thar she goes.
Doing the back cut. How bout that face cut. Nice one huh!
Cutting out the face.
