Smart design, keeping it simple has it's merit. Paint it green and it would blend in, just a thought.

I like it. Are the 4x4s set in the ground? Is that a metal frame for the lid?

Here is a picture of my new and not finished 3 compartment (roughly 5 3/4 ton) outside coal bin. Due to the coal suppliers need to get this load of coal out of his bin in order to take delivery of some newly inbound coal he had coming in, I had to take my delivery before I could properly finish my project. I put the last screw into it at 11:30 AM on Thursday, and the coal truck was here at 12:20 PM. Thats how close this rushed project was, and my only other option was to have the coal dumped on the concrete pad behind our house. That's 5 tons of UAE Harmony pea in the bin.

It still needs a top lid (or individual compartment top lids) and the hinged discharge bin lids, and some sort of outside sheathing. The lids must go on today, since thunderstorms are coming tomorrow. I was thinking of corrugated fiberglas for the roof and plywood for the discharge shutes (as seen for the center discharge). Any other roof ideas or suggestions that I can use in a hurry?

Last I heard was $165 per ton if picked up directly from the Breaker. Much less than I paid to have only 5 tons delivered from the only Harmony supplier in Ohio.

Going to get 2 more wood pallets add to left side(4'w X 8'D), and get an additional 1.5 tons pea, also thinking od adding to right side, and getting some stove size. This is made with 4 wood pallets as base. Basically its 8'x8'. or there abouts.



The lids are made of 1" aluminum frames, welded together, with plates for hinges in corner areas, actual top is corrugated steel roofing. Used screws for roofing with washers into aluminum frame. Light and will bear any weight of snow in winter without collapsing. I hope.

4x4 posts are not in ground, bolted to pallet frames, outter perimiter 2x6 bolted to posts and pallet frames, plywood sides mounted inside perimeter frames and nailed to them. Plus theres one center tie from middle posts to each other, buried in coal in pics.

Nice job! Is that enough to get you through the winter?

Yes, went with some odd barn red wavy corrugated asphalt based sheet stock. Still need to get it sided though.

Looks like a good simple design but I would want it closer to the house.
I'm just spoiled having it in the barn and being able to go through the summer kitchen to get there! Loving that when there's snow on the ground and I can fill the hods in my slippers.

Here's my bin is 6x7x10. Used 1/2 lag bolts to secure to concrete, and pressure treated lumber on floor. 3 ft removable blanks for easy access to bin. Added shelves to make up for room lost in shop.

I relocated cans into shed, boiler isn't pipe in yet so didn't give it to much thought. Now I'm rethinking about gas powered stuff should be moved :o
