Restoration Sawmill and Hardwoods is a local sawmill and custom hardwood products business in Lafayette, IN that has a two-part goal: 1) providing an excellent product and service to customers for the benefit of our community and 2) helping guys who need a second chance in life.

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 2 duplexes housing a maximum of 12 residents. But 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.

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?
  • No, but we partner with local tree services that provide excellent services and know how to drop trees that will provide the best yield logs for milling. Reach out for the tree services that we partner with.
