This is part of what I think will be a three-building lumberyard. The office/finishing mill will be in two Pola buildings that have been bashed together. (Pictures to follow.)

This is the storage shed.



And if I get really ambitious, probably during the winter, I'm going to try to cobble together a saw shed as has been displayed on the saw mill post here.

A small planer shed would be a great fit, be sure to include a pile of sawdust and maybe a scrap pile, and maybe a pile of firewood for sale, your shed looks great:D

Thanks guys. Toad, I''ll give you a construction hint. Those stacks of lumber are mostly hollow. The timbers on the top and sides are 4 or 5" long, but the stuff on the inner parts of the pile are just nibs about a half-inch long. They're all glued together. Saves a lot of wood. All of that came from a discarded cutting board that made a whole bunch of trips through the table saw!!!

Very nice job Rick! I had not thought of a lumber yard but now I will have to put it on the "to do" list.
Best, Ted

Rick,

That's going to be neat industry complex for your line. Great beginning!

I made my lumber loads for my flatcars hollow also, Still plenty heavy but save a lot of lumber and a good way to use a lot of small odd pieces.
