Lumber for our first new building


Today Micky delivered the first part of an order for lumber for a pole barn we are planning to build that will be used as a woodshed to free up our old woodshed to use more for hay storage and cattle birthing/milking.  The really cool thing about this is that the wood was logged and milled right here at Lifewater Ranch!  After paying Micky for his labor my cost is about half it would be from say Home Depot yet the quality of the wood is much higher than you find at US lumber mills.  This is because the good stuff gets shipped overseas where top dollar is received for it and us Americans get the scrap.

After this building we plan to do another one for guest car parking which will also be used for curing wood over the winter.  Next will be a very large pole barn for hay storage and probably a bunch of other uses.

Very Exciting to see this happening!!!
