Today Allen went to purchase some lumber. The pine he bought today will be used to make forms, so that he can pour concrete for around windows and doors.
Here is the local lumber yard.
This is, of course, the upscale lumber purchasing option. Allen had visited several other people, who have smaller lumber sales operations, but they didn't have what he was looking for. We had to pay a bit more for lumber from this yard, but the quality is higher, as the lumber here was actually sent through a saw mill. The other lumber we could have bought was cut to size using chain saws.
This morning we also placed our order with a local carpenter, for the doors and windows for the first building. Progress!
