I was orginally going to put coal in four cardboard/plastic gaylord boxes on top of pallets and use a floor jack to take the empties and replace them with full ones, the more I think of it, I think I am going to use a space in my garage to store coal, if I could get more than four ton in the space. The space is 5 foot by 6 foot. There already three existing walls, I would have to add the fourth which is just open right now.
Is there a formula of how much sq ft equals a ton of coal?
The three sides of the area is drywall, should I put something up to protect that since the coal my come wet and if so, what is recommended?
For the 4th wall that I would have to make, what is recommended (ie. cider blocks)?
Thanks in advance,
Dan 5x6x6= 4.5 tons 5x6x8= 6 tons If you have the blocks use them You will need a door some where on the bin to get
into it 5 foot high is going to be hard to shovel coal up and over when you make the 4th wall you could put the door in it 4x8 sheet of Plywood 3/4" and a few 2x4 Let me know when you ready I will come down the road and help you build it
