    In doing a few searches $10-$15k is a bit much for me at this time. I have looked at doing the trashcan method. The challenges for me with the Trash can method living near Houston are

    1) ground moisture: There are times of the year we get inundated with rains and I have standing up to 2 inches of water on the ground for days or just an inch or so below grade. Never flooded during any storm but it’s the nature of the topography of the land So I can elevate the lid a bit to avoid that

    2) condensation due to humidity There are times of the year when the cold shifts to warm and my house literally sweats. So I’d be concerned that all the straw in the world would eventually accumullate enough moisture to start rotting.
