When I cleared the land to build my house, I took the trees to a mill and they did a one-for-one deal with me. They cut one for me and then cut one for them. When all was done I ended up with about 12,000 board feet. I built a 30x40 barn with one side 12 ft high and the other 8 feet high sort of a sideways salt box design. I wanted a 12ft high door to get large equipment in. I built all the side walls using lumber placed at 45 degree angles for strength. I built it while the contractor built the house. BTW, he finished the house before I finished the barn !
