    I didn't feel like building my own (I know, could've saved maybe $75-$100). I have a lot of the stuff needed, but I just wanted something that could be used right out of the box. That being said, I am still very excited. I should be able to start cutting logs this weekend!!!

    I hadn't either, until i decided to put some trees to good use. I stated in another thread I think, that I've got some trees on my property, and limitless trees on adjoining property. I want to build my own coop (big coop). However, i don't want to spend what would be thousands to have it built (still expensive buying materials myself).

    With these, I should be able to cut down NUMEROUS trees on my property, enough to build a massive coop and enclosure. I've got a plan for my property. I want to build my coop to the far left of the barn, on other side of fencing. I then want to build the garden area into stalls for future animals. I think that would look great!

    Time consuming especially for space to dry.

    Old sycamore I had on the place. Made lots of planks.

    And that's only half of it. It's too crowded now to take a good picture.

    Very beautiful and rewarding indeed. Plan is for the sycamore 4" slabs gonna plane down to about 3" and use for new kitchen counters the 1-1/2" gonna be planed and milled to make cabinet doors. When it's dry enough to work.

    I have a feeling once I get the hang of this, I may start to get requests to build this or that from my wife...lol I am installing a fireplace insert (zero-clearance) at some point. I think i could make a hell of a mantel with some cut lumber front backyard.
