I'm thinking about building a basement coal bin, as in my short time burning, I've found the only thing better than a nice big coal pile in the yard, is a dry coal pile in the basement ready to go.
I know many of you folks living in 'turn of the century before last' homes have them, but I didn't know if any of you folks would like to send photos and/or share your thoughts.
Our home is a traditional Cape Cod layout, 2 stories, plus walkout basement the size of the home's footprint.
I was planning on changing one of the daylight windows of the home that's at grade into a coal door for the bin.
Dust management is obviously an issue, especially when filling, I didn't know if there were other thoughts on the matter that those with experience might have insight on.
