We have built a 'barn' with an apartment and will one day build a house.
We knew the sawmill was there,it didn't bother us.

The land simply was 'it'.

As a kid I was raised on a Dairy farm in Michigan. On weekends and in the summer we cut logs for the forestry and hauled them to a paper mill, located on a river connected to Lake Michigan.
For those who don't know what a papermill smells like, your lucky. It's a unique smell you'll never forget.

Does the dust linger outside in the air and layer itself on neighbouring houses and gardens, also does it affect health on people in these houses? What about asthmatics? I'm thinking of moving just in front of a sawmill. I don't like a lot of noise or dust collecting in the backyard. My daughter has asthma.

With your health issues.... Don't live next to a commercial operation.
Trucks, noise, shiftwork, traffic...

There are plenty of desireable options in rural USA. Keep looking.
