I need advice.
First, my back is to the detached garage. The chimney and stove is at the other end of the house. At least we have a walk in basement. Not asking for sympathy, we are young and strong.
The coal bin is in the back of the detached garage. We climb up the ladder and shovel the coal into buckets.
It's a 4x4x8 bin. This doesn't show it very well but the left wall is slightly blown out in the back corner. I need to repair that too.
So, I need a better way to get the coal out. I don't know if the coal is on the concrete or if there is a wood floor.
I have two ideas: I cut the plywood in the second void, where the level is. I then build a rail system so I can remove a panel at a time.
Or in the same void make a doghouse at the bottom. I don't know anything about this, how big it should be for nut coal.
Either way I can't get all the way to the bottom, assuming it is on the concrete. Does the doghouse easily keep the coal in when it is full?
