Alan:

I skipped over and looked at the BTS site. 
Working from limited knowledge of lumber mills, it looks like the Slatyfork mill is what we might call a stud mill.

There is no provision for heavy timbers. 
The process starts with a band saw (actually two. The mill is a "two-saw" mill), then a transfer table to an edger, and then to a swing saw.  

After the swing saw(s) there is a transfer table out to the loading dock, which is the dock off the larger of the side doors.
