The Money Bin

On the first page of the Barks story Hause of Haunts (US 63) 
we can see the empty money bin.
In the fourth panel we can see that there are doors 
on the inside of the vault, leading to different floors.
It's difficult to see if these doors are leading to the front of the bin.
Scrooge is sending his money out of a window on the other side of the vault,
and if he's sending them out on the backside of the bin, 
then the doors are on the front,
probably leading to some offices or other rooms.
One detail that is confusing is that the tall depth measure 
is standing beside the window where Scrooge sends his money away, 
while it usually is placed near the entrance of the vault.

On page 4 and 5 of the same story we get proof that there 
are no rooms outside of the vault at least on one side of the bin. 
The Beagle Boys melt a big hole in the wall, 
and then look straight into the empty vault. 
This seems to be the right side of the bin, if you stand in front of it.
