a few years ago dad hired some amish guys to come to the farm and harvest a couple trees from the upper woods. they came in the winter time when the ground was frozen so it was easier for their horses to haul out the trees without having to deal with all the mud. so they took the trees away and milled the logs down into these 5" wide cherry boards that have been waiting patiently for us to build the house. hopefully they all seasoned equally and are all the same color.
this morning dad and uncle paul moved the tongue & groove wood strip flooring from the 'storage house' to the new house. again, it's the tractor to the rescue.
