Time for a new old idea

The 19th century brought windmills to the American countryside, providing water and electricity to rural areas. Windmills are still in use, although not as extensively as in the past. Now, they’re making a comeback in several different variations. Sand Creek Post & Beam wood tower windmills are historical replicas and feature Aermotor pump systems to be fully functional or as a picturesque focal point for rural acreage.

The windmill towers feature posts and beams in full dimension rough sawn ponderosa or southern yellow pine. They are constructed with 6×6 posts with 4×4 bracing and are offered in 16-, 20- and 24-foot heights and can be shipped pre-assembled or as a package.  The kit includes a heavy duty wood tower platform, tower anchor plates and a ladder or step system.

We’re very pleased to bring these landmarks back to our rural landscape,” says Len Dickinson, co-owner of Sand Creek Post & Beam, “not only are they historic but they are very functional as well.  The historic beauty of our rural landscape has slowly slipped from us; our dream is to restore the rustic beauty of our heritage.”
