    Geez, I hope not!

    Hubby and I had this argument just a couple of weeks ago when we got our first ton of pellets. Last winter we stored them in my shop and I couldn't get in there to work for tripping over pellets so this year I wanted to store them outside under cover. Hubby was scared that they'd get wet and we'd lose all that money and not be able to replace them. He wanted to store 3 tons in a old house we have on the property but I was afraid that the weight would be too much for the floor to support. In the end the pellets ended up right back in my shop. :mad: Oh well......I just won't do any work until spring. ;-)

    Question would the same apply to storing them in a detached garage? This is our first year using a pellet stove and we had the forklift drive right into our garage.
    Is it tooo much weight, anything I should be concerned about? Wanted to add I can no longer fit my car in the garage with the pellets so that wouldnt be a problem

    I have been busy the last day or so..so I haven't been on here..

    my "mud room" is a concrete slab on solid ground so I am not worried about that. The others as I said, I have spread evenly in a different couple of rooms. I used a level as I was setting them down on the floor just to make sure it was unleveling (if that makes sense)
