I built the garage on purpose this way, with a basement, and cast a manhole frame into the concrete floor. Truck dumps my coal ontop the first floor, through the manhole and into the basement to a block bin I built, and have the coal augered into the boiler. All of the mess is out in the garage, and I basically never touch the coal.
Chute it in, take tubs of ashes out. Now....If I could figure a way to auger out the ashes.
That sounds excellent! Exactly what I'd want to do.
