Have you looked at this blog where a humanure system is being used in a small space: http://candida-international.blogspot.com/2009/08/construction-of-humanure-compost-bin-on.html.

Looks like it would hold up well. I've seen composting facilities here in IL that use cinder blocks. I'd say give it a try!

I am about to make my escape from suburban New Jersey, where for years I have composted kitchen and garden waste, stall bedding and horse manure from the county stables, and my own urine. On a 50-by-150-foot lot I haven't had room for a humanure operation, but I am soon buying a property in upstate NY with seven acres where I will have plenty of space. I am thinking of building the humanure structure using Trex decking materials (http://www.trex.com/). If you are not familiar with Trex, it is made of sawdust and recycled plastic bags. It appears to be very tough and unaffected by moisture. Does anyone see any problem with using this material to construct a humanure facility?
