Sawmill

Restoration Sawmill and Hardwoods is a nonprofit business that was started with the sole purpose of growing and sustaining the Restoration Men’s Residential program. 

We want men of all backgrounds and stages of life to have the opportunity to receive the help that can be found in God’s Word without putting a heavy financial burden on their families and loved ones. Meaningful hard work is a blessing and responsibility that God has charged men with, and Restoration Sawmill and Hardwoods provides an outlet for its residents to develop a God-honoring work ethic that, in turn, helps to provide financially for their training.

Restoration currently has 1 duplex housing a maximum of 6 residents. In early 2019, Restoration will open a 2nd duplex to expand our capacity to 12 men. But in addition to the current duplex and the almost completed 2nd duplex, there are 2 more utility-ready lots on the property with 12 other lots that could be developed as the ministry grows. Restoration Sawmill and Hardwoods can help finance the future construction of more housing as well as save on the material costs by supplying and cutting our own lumber. God has begun an incredible work in changing the lives of men through our Restoration ministry, and we have faith that God will finish the good work He has started.

FAQs

Why use a portable sawmill service instead of buying lumber from a hardware store?
  • It can be much more affordable to have your own logs cut into beautiful hardwood lumber instead of paying more at a big box store or lumber yard.
  • We can cut unique custom-size lumber that is not sold at stores and lumber yards.


Do you provide tree removal services?
  • If you have trees that have been cut down or fallen from a storm we can quickly turn your inconvenient eyesore into neatly stacked lumber. 
  •  If you don’t need lumber, there may be trees that we are willing to haul away for free or a small fee.
