Thanks piper corn, how deep are you burying the cans and are you sealing the lids for ants or other small bugs?

So does anyone have any experience with these above ground cellars in canada? Grazi
No, not being buried, placed below ground into a below grade cement room (small)6 feet deep 8 feet long 3 or4 feet wide. Was built for another purpose but now will be for food storage.
Thanks for clarification, I was wondering!

Well I heard back from the people behind FG’s link and I will need to rethink things. People can PM me if interested in getting details.

They mention R50 ...and that’s roughly double what I had imagined and while fair, it also changes the economics. The search will go on for options.

FG, truly appreciate the link,👍🏻👍🏻🍷
