Got a call from my father in-law Saturday night asking me to pick up screws at menards, telling me he wants to build a hay loft in the old corn crib we converted to a goat shed for mother in-law. Ok I think, got the screws he asked for and on Sunday morning I head over to deliver screws and help out. Show up and have a cup of coffee and talk over the build. He tells me it's going to be built out of native lumber he had milled on Saturday. He had a load of 2x8 oak, 1x 10,12,&16 oak, and 1x 8,10,22 & 14 ash. Well a few hours, a lot of heavy wood, and a really sore back but the loft is done, Just gotta add and access hatch and a bale door. Sorry no pics of the finished loft, way too dark in there, but here is a pick of the load of milled lumber. Oh and my payment for the sore back, half that load of oak and ash lumber. Funny thing is the whole time I was working on it all I could think is how much heat all that lumber would have made.
