A new standard for coal bins....
This is getting to be unfair to those of us that haven't built ours yet. ;)
Good job!

Nice job! Better living through vinyl. I had a discussion with my (ex) girlfriend about vinyl siding. She's against it and said it's toxic when it burns. I said anything is toxic when it burns. She gave me a dirty look. Then I grabbed her wristwatch strap and said, "Vinyl." She drove away. lol

Thanks. The things you do to make your spouse happy :) but it did turn out well.

The shelf is actually a step. I was tired of dragging a ladder over to see inside.

Burning vinyl? Wasn't a consideration for me, sorry!

I do need to improve the chute from the bin into my garage and like what I saw from minimax's post. I may need to redo that next.

thx again

She is right. A byproduct of the manufacture and destruction by fire of vinyl creates dioxin. You do not want to breathe those fumes. ;)

I'm anti-vinyl siding, but that's only because I have a very old house and I feel vinyl siding on a place like this takes away from the "character". I can see the advantages and think it looks OK on a newer home, except that you are limited to color choices and whatever you pick you're stuck with.

Nice looking coal bin!

If your vinyl siding is burning, the dioxins released are probably the least of your problems :oops:

HAHA I shouldn't have brought it up. Funniest thing, she showed up unannounced the day I posted that. Wimmen. I didn't mention vinyl again. We had a nice conversation which always consists of me listening and waiting for the rare opportunity to join in.
BTW, it is possible to paint vinyl siding, but you then open yourself up to the periodic repaint. This dwelling I'm in has woodgrain 1' x 2' asbestos cementitious siding from the days when asbestos was king. It's covered up with lots of paint, great stuff but brittle and prone to lawnmower projectile damage. I've replaced panels with the same basic thing , only modern made without the big A.

Good lookin' bins!

If you're worried about the bad that vinyl gives off if it burns you'd better get rid of your sofa, your pillows, your carpet, your TV, computer, refridgerator, good grief, just about everything in our lives has PVC in it!

HELP! My coal bin blew out! I got home tonight and the side of my 8x4x4 bin blew out. The screws just snaped off. Anyway, its now pouring out onto the ground from that side... any ideas on what I need to do? or can do?

Shovel man, shovel before it gets wet and freezes into a solid rock.

I have over 1 ton of buck sitting outside on a tarp. It's not that bad if it gets wet and freezes. As long as there's some drainage (the coal isn't sitting in a pool of water) it breaks apart easily. Last winter I was able to shovel it, it did freeze together on the top, but the coal below the top was fine.

I just went out and covered it with a tarp. It suck because its going to keep coming out every time I try to get coal now. I dont know if I could shovel enough out to be able to re-screw the side back on or not.
