Sawing Up the Log
When we were planning the current development of riders lounge and accommodation here at Spring Spur Stables, in accord with our objective to keep the buildings as green as possible, we aimed to use salvaged and renewable materials where possible. We felled a large blue gum that was shading the site and dropping branches on the public garden areas, and left it to season for a year. Now the log has been milled into cladding timber for the riders lounge using an on site Lucas Mill. Local contractor Gary Points set up his saw in the morning and by days end we had replaced a large log with a 3.6 m3 stack of sawn blue gum. We look forward to working with other local salvaged and reclaimed materials.
