Sawmill Plain.png

The Sawmill building converts Logs Icon logs.png to Timber Icon timber.png which has a variety of uses. Logs Icon logs.png are produced by Forests and need to be delivered to a Sawmill in order to be converted into Timber Icon timber.png.

Timber is a versatile resource that is required for Token Token timber.png production, Improving Efficiency and completing challenges. Timber can be delivered to: Toolworks, Coal Mines, Iron Ore Mines, Factories and the Ruined Church.


The base unit of the Sawmill consumes 3 Logs Icon logs.png and produces 2 Timber Icon timber.png every Game tick. Three of the extensions that can be added to the sawmill increase the capacity of the Log Icon logs.png to Timber Icon timber.png process. The fourth one, the Steam Sawmill provides a large production bonus however, it requires an additional resource of coal Icon coal.png to work. Last, but not least, the Toyshop extension adds a new process to the sawmill that converts Logs Icon logs.png into Money Tokens Token money.png. With all extensions added to a single sawmill, the building will consume roughly 9.13 Logs Icon logs.png and 1 Coal Icon coal.png while producing 8.43 Timber Icon timber.png and 2 Money Tokens Token money.png every tick.
Distance bonus - if the closest forest (not necessarily the one you are carrying the logs from) is more than 50 squares away (direct line distance), the sawmill will produce bonus Wood Token Token timber.png for each 50 squares of distance.
Some of the buildings can be connected to the electrical network E energy.png from Era 5 onward, which will increase their production. The amount of electrification production bonus (if applicable) is shown in the brackets at each extension.

The base production process for the sawmill is shown below:
