Here is what I used. Not the Tapcon either

CArNaGe--Those anchors are exactly what I used, but what secures you uprights to the bottom piece?

I think I used 3" decking screws. Maybe 3.5"
The plywood goes to the floor also, so the bottom sill holds the bottom of the plywood. I have a slight bow at the corner with the double stud also.
You can see it on the right.
Very slight though, it could have been there before and me not notice it.

I put a stud on each side of the existing column, and drilled/secured a 4 inch X 1/2 inch lag screw in each bottom plate. The screws are angled in at about 60 degrees if vertical is 90 degrees.

Thanks for everybody's suggestions.

I didn't realize the amount of coal I bargained for. After filling both halves of an old 275 oil tank, a landscaper's green plastic barrel, and a steel garbage can; I just threw together some osb and a hollow core door in my shed! Then I had to extend the bin another couple of feet for the last pickup truck load. That coal sat dry for decades and I didn't want it to get wet. This is so crude but ya caint beat the price.....

Put 4 ton of rice in bin you designed for 3.2 ton, add extra board across top, add some extra bags on top to be sure you are overloaded.

. Calculate you will not use any rice coal this year as pea boiler is doing fine job. Check bow angle on longer dimension.

Hey mozz, as long as the AVERAGE position of your bin sides is vertical, and not horizontal, you're in good shape :D
You should be set for awhile, and you made a wise investment of money, instead of burning it up in a 401K.

I got my coal bin built today! I did a 4x4x8 so I should be able to fit 3 ton of chestnut, I think? All I have to do is cut in the shoot and I am done.
I will post some pictures tomorrow. I ran out of daylight!

I've learned so much from everybody on the form, I thought I'd share some pict's. Running late as always, not complete yet but here's what I've done so far.

Leveled the first course on a mortar bed, drilled 1/2" holes into floor for rebar, dry-stacked the rest of the blocks in a staggered pattern as usual, and filled the cores solid with concrete. I built the door opening using corner blocks with the groove facing out. I will sandwich 3/4" plywood between a 2x4 frame leaving 3/4" of the plywood extended on the sides, this will slide in the groves in the block. It will be a split door-hope this will work? Final dimensions will be 4' from wall, 4'6" high and 13'6" long.

Having 5 ton of blachak delivered on Monday Dec. 8th. It will be loaded through two trap doors on front porch which is recessed into the house and directly above the bin. The porch floor is the basement ceiling the same dimension as the bin.
