I was able to throw a bin together in the evenings after work last week, I based it off of what I saw on this thread. It is basically 8' x 6' and to the bottom of the basement window where it is filled from is 4.5'. Since the pictures I removed the light and covered the cieling with plastic that drops down to below the height of the plywood to try and keep dust from entering the house. I had 2 ton of nut coal dropped into it yesterday and it wasnt really dusty at all, now I just need to learn how to run a stove for more than a few hours at a time :lol: .

You need this type of delivery truck!

This is how it should be delivered by a coal company.

Awesome Pics there. Nice little set up you have going. If your like me. I always felt great when the truck left and I had a full coal bin. Something about having all that fuel in the house. Made me feel ready for any type of cold weather mother nature could throw at me.

Coal Bins

PostBy: Kielanders On: Mon Jan 09, 2012 6:17 pm

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.

Get your coal sprayed with oil. My dealer sprays a 1/2 gal /ton and it works.

Welcome to the FORUM, I guess Jeff. How about some info in your profile about yourself? :) You gotta excuse tikigeorge, he's just real bashful, but been around for quite a while. His witness protection handler won't let him give out much info. :clap: toothy

Anthracite coal is mostly carbon,whereas bituminous is a hydrocarbon based

coal.When anthracite coal is heated you get carbon monoxide gas which burns

with a blue flame and is nearly sootless.In bituminous's case you have very

complex hydrocarbons which all distill off at different temperatures and

burn with a yellow flame and later in the cycle you get the same type of

flame (blue) as with anthracite. In this case you have to supply enough

additional air to completely combust all of hot gases in the secondary burn

to get all of the heat value from the fuel, and a sootless clean burn.

I use a old horse trailer for pick up and storage. I drilled out the spot welds on the top and kept the frame work for support. I just lay the top skin on the ground when I use it. They just dump on top the frame work of the top. Filled to top of doors will hold about 3 ton. I get funny looks when I go to a place at fist and I hear you can't get a ton in that thing. I say you want to bet,its small but deep? Most tell me thats a good idea after filling it up. Best pulling trailer I have used,all weight is over axles. I use it to haul stone,mulch,and live stock in the summer. Best $300 I ever spent :D
