If that was my bin I would put roll roofing on the top and cedar shingles on the sides, pretty maintenance free after that. Good luck with what ever you decide.

One bundle of your favorite roofing shingle and one box of your favorite color siding will make your coal bin look nice! :D

Why not roof it with metal roofing? It would keep the lid lighter. Also could be sided with the same.

I wish I had those kind of skills, Great job. :D


I actually can't take the credit - my mother designed and built it! She also built the garage that it sits beside. :)

Can your mom come over and build me a garage too :D

makes it easy to keep track of whats going on.I still use bagged coal so it handy
for me.

I made a insert out of plywood that allows it to empty to where there is only about
75 lbs. left.I had 1 block up so I bought bevel gears from Mcmaster Carr,A garden bulb
planting drill bit at Ace and made my own adjitator.I also have a bin made from 2- 5 gallon
pails to really get to the nitty gritty if I think I have an idea to make it more efficent.

I used pressure treated plywood and covered it with vinyl siding to match my home. In your case I'd recommend that you dri-loc the osb board as coal is delivered wet.

Good luck

I circulate water from the shop to the house and then back to
the tank next to the boiler.I have a Taco RMB that circulates it
in the house at the temperature that I program it to.This loop
only circulates when there is a demand for heat.I have another
loop for domestic hot water off the coil in the boiler to a 50 gallon
tank in the house.There is one extra pump plumbed into the loop
with bypass valve so I can experiment with flow rates in the heat
loop.I have another Taco RMB in the shop off the boiler tank to
heat the shop.This picture is in the basement of the house.
NO SOURCE OF CO2 in my home.SWEET!

Here are pics of my solid fuel storage facility, AKA woodshed and coal bin. :funny: I built the woodshed two or three years ago when I finally got tired of digging frozen wood out of the snow. When I decided to start burning some coal this year, I opted to be a girlie man and forgo the whole "dig frozen coal out of the snow" scenario, so I built a bin. Most of it was built from stuff I had laying around, so I've only got about $150 in it. The walls are old concrete forms I had built to do the rock/concrete foundation on an addition; the siding is rough 1x6's with a bevel sawn on them, I mixed the concrete for the floor, etc. It's 5x10, 6' high in the front, 6' wide doorway, 4' of removable 2x6's, the little doors swing open for shoveling more coal in, shovel it out through the little opening at the bottom. It's working pretty good so far.
