Good looking bread! I make mine from locally sourced whole wheat or white flour. I mix the dough in the bread machine, then knead it a bit and shape it before baking. I use the simplest possible recipe, and everyone still raves about my bread.

Welcome William, those look really nice!
The cooking topic seemed to evolve because people who do things tend to do all sorts of things and it's kind of a fun community in general.
What kind of mill do you use? I mostly use my nutrimill which makes nice fine flour for bread (and is nice low effort ;D).
Also do you sift? I had some difficulties with hard red having a high bran content and cutting the gluten.. Do mostly switch to hard white. Your loaves look nice and high though so guessing either sifted our a really long soak/preferment.
Never thought of using the machine just for mixing and then put the dough in regular size loaf pans to bake .
At what stage do you dump the dough out of the machine. ? I would imagine it would have to be punched down and then allow to raise again in the loaf pans before baking in the oven .
I do add about 1/3 white flour but a person has to be careful to get it labelled as "bread" flour and not all purpose because the bread flour has a higher gluten content .
I was going to ask if you used a bread maker judging from the look of the loaf. After many hand injuries, kneeding is out of the question, but doing a "Dough Only" setting allows for putting it into a more traditional loaf pan. Good looking
bread!! edit... just saw that was already brought up

My wife had to have a fancy bread machine years ago. For months the house smelt like homemade bread, then it dissipated and I haven't smelled it for several years!
