"A friend of mine had a vision to convert a horse arena into an event center." Two years and 52,000 board feet later, Darrell built LL Farms, "An event and wedding facility with a touch of character." When asked about a helpful feature of the LT40 HD Super, Darrell said, "Definitely the computer setworks. Cutting finish sizes for paneling and framing so each piece was accurate was so neat and fast." With over 15,000 square feet of floor space to accommodate large gatherings, Darrell's plans for "LL Farms" don't stop there. "Future plans include an outside chapel to be built along with cabins for guests and families to stay in."
Greg Holbrook • Lebanon, TN • LT40 • 50% of lumber cut on mill • $3,000 estimated saved
Greg used his LT40 to build a 3,300-square-foot pole barn in order to safely store his LT40 and cut lumber. "I am very happy that my mill doesn't have to set out in the weather and now I can work inside even if it is raining."
Kaspar cut more than 30,000 board feet of white oak and white pine with his LT40 to construct a 3,000 square foot reproduction of a historic Dutch barn. When seeing the finished barn, Kaspar said, "[I have a] tremendous sense of accomplishment and pride in myself and the men who worked with me."
Luc and Marie built this 24' X 40' X 12' workshop out of spruce and cedar in order to start construction on their family home inside of it. "We have lots of pride in this project. The barn was built by just the two of us. We had to be creative to handle the various difficulties, such as structural weight, but nothing require additional planing thanks to the precision of the Wood-Mizer."
Russell Wright • Saranac, NY • LT40 HD • 100% of lumber cut on mill • $27,000 estimated saved
With the need for a new stable for their family horse business, Russell used his LT40 HD to build a 24' X 48' pole barn out of cedar, hemlock and white pine. "It was wonderful to see a new barn on the farm, and there is a unique pride that comes with it. Every piece of wood on the barn was from a tree that grew on the farm and every board was cut by me, on my Wood-Mizer sawmill."
