I wanted to guess by the orange color it was a Woodmizer but heck I wanted to say older Norwoods were orange and there's other brands out there. We've got an old 1954 Ford tractor that hauls for us- we actually traded part of the corn crib work to get.I have a woodmizer LT40 and a 1973 melroe bobcat skidsteer to snake logs out of the woods, load the woodmizer and move bunks of lumber around.
I know several folks that own Norwood's and they all like them. Can you tell us more? Maybe post some pictures?
All that needs place is a fire place and a few windows and someone could live in there. I like wood buildings, does it have heavy beams also? Please post moreHere are some photos- they're thumbnails to fit, so click to see them larger:

These deserve to be larger though. This corn crib we traded part of the work helping build it to get the tractor. All the outside wood minus the porch floor and interior floor came from us. We even cut the cedar for their door. The top is when it was first being built and the bottom is today. He wanted it to age naturally and therefore didn't stain it. We keep egging him to turn this into a general store! The gentleman that owns it is a former pastor of ours, and they store their heirloom corn in here.

I would love to the inside and how the "corn crib" is put together. When I first got my sawmill I teamed up with a old long time Sawyer he taught me good. Then I started trying different sawing techniques to cater to hardwood furniture makers. Next thing you know I had so much work I could hardly keep up and had to hire my son-in-law for help. My sawmill has paid for it'self many times over... it's one of the best investments I ever made.@CrealCritter - Love the presentation. New sawmillers need to see this! What good info is included. The man with the corn crib actually had some HUGE really old heart Pine beams he used for the floor framing, the center beam, and I don't think he used them for the rafters though. I'll take a photo of the inside next time we are over there!
Please do - it's so cool to have another Sawyer on SS.I will be absolutely sure to try and get more photos if we go back over there soon of the corn crib to share, especially inside. He used store-bought lumber for the inside corn stalls and top flooring as we were using the mill and lumber at the time on our house.
