A highland fling

our wee adventure on the Black Isle

First you cut the tree…

…then you make your own pine beams!

Remember when I told you about cutting several pine trees in our forest? In the spring? We logged the smaller bits for firewood, and kept the larger, straight trunks for use elsewhere.

What type of use, I hear you ask? Well, we will make some into beams for building, and some for cutting into planks –  hopefully to build a shed/workshop for our agricultural materials. The plan is to eventually use the current workshop for a “Lujos factory”!

Kenton just started putting the trunks on the sawmill yesterday – in just a short time, we have 2 long, lovely beams!

See for yourself.
