Day 81 of the Farmhouse Project
Today is the day that area where the farmhouse will be constructed has to be cleared. That means that some of our trees will have to be cut.
This is what has to happen to build but it is a difficult process to see done. I found it very hard to see this beautiful mature trees of Oak, Hickory, Cotton wood and dThis was depressing – we had to cut down trees in order to build the house.
I was told that any tree that would be a threat to the house had to be taken out. Also you want some light to get to your home to prevent mold and other such things from taking over your home. Yuck!!! Sunlight is good.
The quality trees, such as oak and hickory we will have a portable sawmill company come and make lumber for us out of those and then use in the house. The other less desirable trees we will burn as fire wood to heat our home. Nothing will go to waste.
