I suggest visiting Kailash Ecovillage in SE Portland.

I visited the community in July. They have an excellent, high volume compost
system. I was impressed and yes a bit envious. I think they have 12 or so 4x4x4
bins surounding a square courtyard. They built with cinder blocks. The system
can be rat proof with a lid.

Here is some info about it:

Here is a picture of the compost courtyard being built

I manage our compost system here at CoHoEcovillage in Corvallis. We use pallets
to build our bins. We have enough bins (about 16) that the compost ages almost a
year before use so the result is beautiful. We don't turn. Temperatures run 120
to 140 degrees F. For more details contact me directly.

The system is based on the book
