Free coal offer

PostBy: jpete On: Sun Mar 17, 2013 12:17 pm

A friend of mine is a home inspector and a recent house has this in the basement. He said if I want it, it's mine. I just have to bucket brigade it out of the basement.

He says this is about 6ft x 6ft x 3ft deep. It looks dirty to me and I already made that mistake once.

What do you see?

Looks like stove coal and unless that bin deeper than the rest of the basement can't be more than one half to 3/4 ton if you're lucky.

I just looks dirty.

My friend says the flash made it look whiter than it does in person but I've done this deal before it and was nothing but headaches.

Ask for a 5 gallon pail to do a test burn...you may be pleasantly surprised.
