The common sizes we cut were usually 8’6”, and 12’6”. Occasionally we’d cut 16’6” for 16’ lumber, but only if and when we knew we had a use for it. That long gets unwieldy to handle.

Logs are 10' 6" to 10' 9". Bar on my saw is 20" so I used that to measure.

This weekends progress. This is for the light switches in the shop and power from the panel. Had to add the second conduit due to conductor full.

Last weekend I replaced my walk door for one with a window and replaced the wood siding with cement board. Still have to put the window back but I'm happy with the outcome.

Septic system was installed today. Tan was moved over because bedrock was found 24" down.

A few more pictures.

The leach field was located farther from the building then I'd like due to finding more rock. Glad I removed those trees.

Do yourself a favour, go place some rocks just outside the field while you know where it is. They can be markers for down the road to know where it’s located. And maybe placed so that the area doesn’t get drove over.

Be careful driving over the tank and field... How much weight can the tank, etc. hold?
