Tambre, I don't know what your solution might be. Those sawmills can be awful screechy - they can smell bad too. A pole barn might help and trees too. Sometimes sound just carries. Our nearest neighbor is 1/2 a mile away up the holler, and I can still hear his tractor sometimes if the wind is right.

Default Sawmill Noise remediation

Thanks for the replies everyone. I don't want to change what other people who live nearby want to do..it's their land, they can do what they want. I just may have to live somewhere else, if the noise is unbearable, and there is no way to remediate it. That's life, you've got to take the good with the bad.

That's why I'm looking for ideas. Unfortunately we have most of the equity from my NY house tied up in the farm. We knew when we bought the property that it might be a possibility, as there used to be a sawmill there which had closed down. That's why we built as far away from that end of the property as we could. Guess we'll just have to go out and hear it for ourselves, and see if we can live with it. By the way Houston, what are shorts?

Muleskinner...thanks for your personal experience. I'm not sure which kind of sawmill it is...probably the small, horrible kind

Driller, thanks for the compliment on the garage/apt. We were planning to build a house next to it, but that is on hold both due to the economy (can't sell our house here in NY and this new sawmill issue).

MoNative, thanks again for understanding that I am not looking to infringe on the liberties of others, but trying to find a solution to a problem that I am having.

Silvermouse...hog farms Or maybe we need to start one, lol. I don't mind a mobile home or two...there are plenty in the 'hood already.

I cherish the mobile homes on the road to our farm. I figure they keep out the riff-raff who might want to build McMansions.

I'd think of putting in some trees, but I couldn't stand to live without lots of plants and trees anyway. It might really help with any noise issues.

Thanks Misplaced...maybe some nice evergreens. I've always liked White Pines, used to climb them as a kid, but not sure what grows well in the Ozarks as far as evergreens go.

Looks like shortleaf pines and Eastern red cedar might be good choices.
