Yesterday was a good day to build my bin for my 1st upcoming season of coal burning.
Its an 8'x8' all around and 4 feet high. Used six 4'x8' panels eight 2x4's and five 4"x4"x8' beams for floor support. Used all treated lumber.
The "door way" will have three vertical sliding panels, Each panel will be a foot tall with a handle attached. As the coal goes down, I'll remove the top panel until the coal goes down enough to remove all three panels. Then I'll be able to work my way inward.
Transport from by bin to my house will be a 2 wheeled, wheel barrel. I'll be filling my coal bucket from the wheel barrel for stove loading.
Now all I need is the coal
