In this area, you can buy your saw mill, or if you got the logs, pay $40 per hour to someone with a band saw mill to come in and cut up your logs. If you got prime logs, some mills will cut for a share of the lumber. In 6 or 7 hours, the guy can slice and dice many dozens of logs. One guy a few miles away, had posts and beams cut from his trees and got enough to frame out several out buildings. He even built a few log structures including a goat barn. If you are contemplating one of those chain saw attachments, they are fine in the outback/deep woods, but if you are near roads, get a guy to come in with a bandsaw mill to cut it up for you.
