2013 Personal Best Third Place Winner in Small Barns and Sheds, LT15 owner Robert Gondar
"I enjoy making maple syrup but it can be difficult when trying to do it entirely outside,” said Robert Gondar. “I had always wanted a comfortable and warm sugarhouse and with a little prodding from my grandchildren, the dream turned into a reality.” With his Wood-Mizer LT15 sawmill, Robert sawed 100% of the 3,734 board feet needed for the 512-square-foot sugarhouse. Robert estimated saving $2,240 by sawing all the tamarac, spruce, fir, and eastern white cedar for the project. “It was a true sense of accomplishment that wouldn't have been affordable without having my own wood lot and a Wood-Mizer,” he said. “I was finally able to boil my sap from an outdoor barrel evaporator to a nice and comfortable building. Many friends and neighbors joined me during the sap season to make it an enjoyable and tasty winter."
