I'll second that. I tried a chainsaw mill once. Maybe with a proper chain (ground for ripping instead of cross cutting) it wouldn't have been quite so bad. But it's really hard, noisy, and slow work. I can't imaging cutting enough boards with one to build a barn.
A band saw mill with a proper carriage and hydraulic log lift is much safer and more efficient.
