Funny you should post this now! Seriously, I was thinking about your bin picture on page 30. I liked the look you have with the vertical recycled cedar boards. I'm planning a deck expansion project and will likely go to composite decking for the reduced maintenance requirement vs the PT I have now. I'll likely make something similar with the old decking although it's nice to just wheel the cart into the woods in summer.

Well, it's missed it's first duck opener. Used about 3/4 of that nice heap of coal, too. It's nice buying coal just once a year.

I've been working on a 2nd bin for the buck for the stoker, the 1st bin has nut in it now. I hope to find the time to finish it soon, I'm getting tired of the wheelbarrow and bucket deal.

It has about 1,000 screws in it and is very solid. Had to have one end hovering in the air due to the duct above.

Now if I can just get it finished and filled.
All the 2X4's and 2x6's were left over from the pole barn, all I had to buy was 2 sheets of plywood and the deck screws (lots).

Looks good John :up: I would have used Pressure-treated on the framing members on the floor, but as you said, it was all leftover and already paid for.
You waiting for the same coal supply I am? ;) ;)

Just though I'd add a picture of my coal bin also. It hold about 6.50 tons and is made of concrete block and cement.

I have room to the right to add a doghouse for the stoker auger which will be attached to the stoker boiler I will one day own.

Holds about 2 tons. Slanted floor. All pressure treated wood. 'Someday' it will get siding to match the house... BUT, that 4 inch PVC pipe is just a fraction of a degree NOT steep enough to free flow !! :doh: :oops2:

John, you don't have to follow the directions written on the duct work. Just ignore them, it will be less painfull. :D :lol:

My coal pile got flooded last winter in a freak ice backup on a local creek, so I wanted a better storage location so I bartered time with a retired neighbor who built most of my coal barn. Now the coal is too dry, causing clouds of dust with every transfer. :( Other than that, the boiler is humming away churning out lots of heat for my home & DHW.

This is the home made guillotine hopper door on the end of my 5 ton capacity coal bin. The coal bin is 2X4 and 2X6 outside frame with wafer board inside walls. It is achored to the concrete floor of my garage so the bottom won't kick out. The pannel above the door and the pannel the door is mounted in are removable so the coal can be shoveled forward when the level drops below the door. The bottom of the door is just a little higher than the top of my coal scuttles. I thought it might have a problem with jamming, but it actually works very smoothly. I plan to add a door the the back of the bin so I can drain more of the coal out of the bin without shoveling. I'll get some more pics of the bin when I clear all the woodworking machinery away from it so you can actually see it. :)

I have had a stoker since '97 and always got bagged rice as it was easier for me to put under the house, staying dry. This year, I put in a Hitzer 82FA and used the spot under the house to keep my wood, which I planned on burning mostly. As there was a misunderstanding when I priced out the stove from our dealer (really nice husband/wife business but he just recently passed away and she is kinda new to running things), she gave me 1/4 ton of nut coal to try but it was to come in bulk. I didn't want to bag it myself there so I took one of our feed bins in the back of my pickup and had them fill it there. When I got home, I unloaded it with our skidsteer and forks, onto my front porch. If it works out well, I will do something different next year. Like I said, she gave me a 1/4 ton but I had them fill it, and found it holds about 1650 pounds.
