    Maybe but if we really want to compare wood I might win. I do have massive wood right now

    Did you get the lumber grading issue squared away and are going to mill that into building material? That's a nice pile of straight logs and it's crazy that it has to leave your property to go to a mill so you can buy other boards from a mill that came from somewhere else.

    You should start a blog about your journey to build a home built with the materials that came from your land.

    There is a strong following of people who want to homestead. Some have big money to make the transition, but many (most) don't and would be interested in keeping the costs down. Milling your own, if you can, is one way for people to bridge the economic gap from where they are, to where they want to be.

    Clearly, you are no stranger to hard, physical work. People with dreams often bring that, but might need a little inspiration to show them that sometimes, that is more important than anything else they might need to make them come true.

    Reminds me of when I bought an old growth cedar stump off Craigslist a number of years ago... Then paid to have it moved to Magnolia in Seattle...then again to have it “planted”. It was moss covered, cedar volunteers, blue berries, salal. Quite the talk of tge neighboorhood.

    Better be careful showing that stump pic. It looks like the Octopus that was slain at Alki!

    Hard work is what gets your dreams turned into realities! Way to make it happen. It feels great to be living in our dream spot and knowing it was head work that got us here!

    As for the use of lumber from the property your biggest hurdle will be drying and often times guys with small mills(some even with portable mills ) will have material that’s been killed and drying from another job and will just trade you for your raw logs. It just depends on how fast you want to build.

    I wish i was cool enough to know how start a blog but ill just keep it here and facebook. Yes I found a person to grade it 70 an hr from time they leave tacoma. The logs actually are not from my property I've been doing a lot of side work and the logs are from Those jobs. It's amazing how many people don't want the wood they pay me to take down. Some of those for are tight grained 60ft no taper doug fir and around 3ft at the butt. The mill is about 50yds from the log pile.

    I have a kiln lined up and milling it all myself. Everything in the orange end pile is mill wood and everything else is firewood
