#1: Know what your going to use your lumber for. This helps you decide the practicality of your project. How long to cut your logs, the stacking and storing your lumber.
#2 Transporting your logs to the sawmill. I find a trailer is an easier option.
#3 My fee’s: $.40 pbf hardwood, $.35 pbf softwood. $20 blade charge if I hit a nail.
There’s a number of reasons I don’t move the sawmill, mostly related to productivity.
