Small Cabin Forum / Cabin Construction / Making longer skids out of shorter ones?

Curious, could two shorter skids be overlapped (staggered) and screwed together to create a longer one, i.e. laminated? My local mill has 12ft lengths but not the 20ft I am looking for, so I'm hoping there is a way I can use the 12ft lengths to create the 20ft skids I want.

If they were supported on the bottom, as in laying on say crushed rock, I don't see why not.

If there is no span I can't see how it is a problem if the cut ends are treated.
