Mill Shed Rennovation

Last semester the Forestry Crew received a new sawmill in order to more safely and efficiently utilize the byproducts of the forest management occurring on the College Forest. Unfortunately, the new sawmill would not fit under the existing mill shed. The shed roof needed to be dismantled in order to be replaced by a gable roof. The crew took down the existing timber frame on one side, milled new posts, and did the timber frame joinery needed to re-erect the frame.

Once the timber frame was erected, the Rentals and Renovations crew under the leadership of Paul Bobbitt collaborated with the Forestry Crew to frame the roof and install the panels.

Thanks to the help received from the Rentals and Rennovations crew the sawmill has a new home! We couldn't have done it without them.
