Anyone who can help!!!

I'm new to this so you will have to bear with me, until I get the hang of it.

I'm looking for templates for or plans for a sawmill. I have the Hull Oakes plans from Western Scale models, but it seems to big for what I want and not clear on how to build it.
Thanks,

Jerry, I'm in the process of doing the same thing.........Its not as easy as some of the guys have made it look is it ;)
Ive actually worked on a couple of differant sawmills and i've been working at designing my layouts mill on and off for 6 weeks now.I'm getting closer but still a long ways from finished with the designwork.
It will be a Port mill of moderate size(small actually for a port mill)
Every day I sit down to work on the plans I kick myself for not just doing a backwoods Mill LOL
The Mclean Mill link above has a lot of good drawings and would make a nice sized mill.
The Laurie Green Mill is very well done and well thought out.
There are alot of images on the net to help detail.
Of course as a last resort you can always scratch a big warehouse type building, give it about 3 add ons,a loading dock and a green chain from a pond and a few outbuildings like a powerhouse,sawdust burner or sawdust storage and loading chutes and a Drying Shed or Kiln.
Make the planer a seperate mill complex all together or add it in with the main mill.
How about a narrow gauge 2' or 18" line from the main mill to a Planer mill :)

Rod,

Thanks for the info I really do appreciate it. I'm working on a sawmill now I have some plans and I'm waiting to get some plans sent to me. I have the Band-Saw from Sierra West Models and today recieceived the Log Carriage the new Kit Bill just came out with in O-Scale. I hope one of these days I will be able to post pictures of my work here.
