Hi, i was wondering what dimensions you would need per ton of coal, I am thinking of building a bin to hold between 3 to 6 ton of coal. Thanks

A ton of coal takes up about 40 cubic feet. A 4 by 4 by 8' bin would hold 3.2 ton. (4 times 4 time 8= 128, divided by 40= 3.2)

The last number is the height? if it is could I make it a little wider and a little shorter so it would fit better in the spot I want to put it? say 1 ft shorter and 1 ft wider? thanks
