Yow! :o that looks like a back breaker. Nice clean stack job... if anyone starts shooting at ya, you know where to go :P This is my first year as well, I thought about bags also, but with being able to save a couple of bucks and the fact that I have no where to stack the bags, I went with the ole coal bin approach. The nice thing about it is every time you start to fuss over a detail, you say to yourself its a coal bin for crying out loud :doh: It cost me around 300 or maybe a little less, for all the pressure treated wood, OSB and stain. Lots of screws (I used the expensive kind for decking that can hold up to PT wood) and time. It took around a week spending a little here and there this past week. With the weather so hot I had to stop from time to time to jump in the pool.. then you have a tall cold one :cheers: and next thing you know ... coal bin, what coal bin :confused:
Anyway, good luck to you this winter, I hope our new coal experience goes smoothly.

First year burning so Im guessing that this will be enough. It's 4.8 ton, 4 pallets. I like the bags. The only prob I have with them is the yellow'ish oil or water/ fluid.. whatever it is. It gets on you when moving the bags. Other than that, out of 240 bags, only had a hand full or so that had the heat seal at the top of bag not complete and would loose coal. I like the bags like I said but bulk was $40 cheaper a ton.

I hope you put an extra 2 by 6 or two under the platform. That's a LOT of weight in a small area. You have about 225 pounds per square foot. That's more than most floors are rated. I'd even be careful of where I placed my body as I installed braces.

GR, I'm surprised the liquid was yellowish. The Blaschaks I got last winter had a blackish liquid but was pretty wet from being stored outside.Maybe they are using veg. oil?

Stoked, S-w-e-e-t :)
