Hello from Middle Ga.

A little about me. Former Air Force aircraft mechanic. Dabbled in wood working about 30 years ago. Have done some carpentry. Took drafting in high school 40 years ago. Designed a house as a project( pre CAD). Now at 58 we are planning our last house. It will be a 1500 sq ft log house with full basement. A log company will do the dry in. I will be my own GC We have 8.5 acres. Hardwood and pine. Current plan is I will do oak floor, hickory plank cabinets, sweetgum counters and pine interior walls. Total of about 5000 bf. My mill operator charges .30bf for cutting and another .30/bf for kiln drying.
I have acuired a Makitia 2030 joiner/ planer, a Dewalt 7730 RAS with dado blade, Old Craftsman RAS and a Delta miter saw. Still need to pick up a router and table or a shaper to do all the Tounge and Groove. Once the house is built the basement will be mine. The layout will provide me with s 15x 30 area for a shop. After I finish this project plan on doing maybe pallet furniture or other fun stuff.

I know I kinda between carpenter and wood worker.

Welcome to the forum. A 15 X 30shop will be nice. We love to advise on new shops!

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

Welcome to the forum. Lots of good advice here free for the asking. I noticed your major tool list is missing a tablesaw - are you trying to get by without one?

Since I am using all 1x 4,6,8,10 . No plywood for the cabinets there will only be a little ripping on one row of floorboards. Since I am cutting my logs I will have very little waste, overage yes. May not need one right now. I am more concerned about what to get for the tounge and grove. I debating between a shaper or a router and table. Plus currently I only have a 12x12 shed that has my automative tools, parts for my other projects.

We lived in Bossier for 7 years 84 -92.
Here is a link to the photo album I started when we bought the land.

Other than a mini excavator for the culverts it all been done with the tractor pictured. Trees were cut with an Echo 18 in saw. The stack of 1x6 is for fence rails. The not so neat stack was what so called friends did. Had to go back and restack it.

The entire basement will be about 1500 sq ft. If you look at the plan in my photo link you see it will be ease to divide in to 3 sections.
