Hi

Frame up a closet with some 2x4's and particle board. Nothing fancy or expensive. Put a simple hatch on it for a door. That way you would have plenty of room for what ever you decided to do, but could control the environment pretty well.

My trash can rig is just a 35 gallon rubbermaid with the lid. I have holes drilled near the handles for a broom handle to slide through and I use that to hang the meat from. It barely holds three whole rolled hog bellies for pancetta. My attic in from October to March stays at 65 and humidity is awesome. My basement at my house stays at 65 and with a dehumidifer it stays around 60%
