The saw mill arrived last week, from Sweden. All the trees we have cut down will be put through this mill, some to get them out of the wood as too heavy as they are, but don’t wont to loose the length so they’ll be “beamed”. This was it’s first outing with Rick practicing and seeing how it works with some pine that he cut down on our property. I expect it will become a bit of a spectator sport with the villagers once they get wind that this is what he’s doing, we seem to be a constant topic of conversation…..
welcomethis is a blog about two people making as much of their life as they can by hand on 15th October, 600 forest fires and hurricane Ophelia, ravaged 1 million acres of land, incinerated houses (along with ours) and took many lives, destroying forests and wildlife, infrastructure and livelihoods We are currently looking for new land to build again, in a different way but still by hand......keep checking in and send us messages, your continued support means a lot to both of us
