[quote="LsFarm"]I finished the roof on my outdoor coal storage 'bin'. Last year the bin was roughly 12'x20'x6', this year I doubled the width, and raised the walls another 2'.
So this 'bin' now is roughly the size of a two car garage, 24'x20x8'.
Last year I had a tent top stretched over the bin, with a ridge beam to support the tent.. this didn't hold up well or stay taut enough to get snow to slide off. So I ended up with a sagging tent top dripping water onto the coal despite the cover.. and I had frozen coal. The auger on an AxemanAnderson will not feed if it has a frozen lump of coal near the auger inlet.. so having frozen coal is not a good thing at all.
I haven't figured out my sliding doors for the bin yet,, but soon I'll have some form of weather proofing on the west facing opening..
That aint no coal bin, that's an in law apartment or something!
