I just hooked up a Harman Mark III in the lower level(walkout basement). I did a google search and found this thread. The information here is excellent. I couldn't believe all the pics posted of coal bins....what a help! I've been burning wood since 1990 and I was getting tired of getting up at five a.m.
to stoke it on really coldnights, and humping
the wood up a flight of stairs. Now with the Harman Mark III in the lower level, I should only have to deal with it once a day compared to loading the woodstove every 4-5 hours, and no more steps.
Thanks again for all the pics, now I have lots of ideas now on how to build my coal bin!
