A bobcat is your friend when it comes time for a coal delivery. Considering you will be saving about 50% on your heating costs, a few bags of grass seed shouldn't blow the budget. :D

My new "Coal Barn" was out in the woods nestled between the trees like it was always there. Now the new dirt ramp with field stone as the retaining wall almost complete it is almost perfect who would of thunk we needed all of this but when it is done it is done, and the house is soo warm :roll:
Nice job enjoy the heat the details will work themselves out.

A big "Thank you" to http://nepacrossroads.com/member/VigIIPeaBurner/ for taking the time to build a nice coal bin for me, now I am faced with the task of clearing some of the rubble and junk out of the barn so I can tuck that bin in there--somewhere.

Thanks for the complement on the truck. It's getting there, still have more work to do on it as time and money permits. I need to find a junk XLT for the interior and upgraded outside trim.

What do you think about these for coal bins? 12' x 12'. I think they would be cool. Any inputs? :?:

George,

Pretty cool but you'd need some baffling and a way to access the coal without spilling allot out.

Find some Amish people w/ a saw mill for some rough cut. They cut it up here for .35 cents a bd. ft.--of course they're Freetown Amish. :D

Here's some pics of my indoor bin... Sized to accommodate 4 tons of rice plus a little "wiggle" room, total volume 168 Cubic Ft...
Bin lives in my garage just a few steps away from my Alaska Stoker Stove 2... Used to be against front wall of garage but moved it this year against the back wall, need to build a hopper for the coal delivery guy to "chute" into so for now I have to have it dumped on the garage floor and shovel it in... Not ideal but I gained some storage space by moving the bin, so no big deal... Just last week received my 4 ton delivery and took about 5 hours by myself to shovel and bucket load it all into the bin.... Bin is tied from front to back using 5/8" threaded rod in 4 places... Chute is removable when level gets down far enough that the coal won't flow any longer... Entire bin was built to be taken apart in complete sections without ever picking up a screw gun or other, just a few wrenches and a few hours later all the sections can be loaded on a pickup truck and taken to a new home!!! I only rent this drafty old barn so someday I'm gonna leave this dump and it's coming with me!!!
