Using A Shipping Container As An Underground Shelter / Root Cellar...

This is a step by step record of a guy building an underground shelter using a 20 ft. shipping container. For those wondering why he didn’t simply pile dirt over it without pouring a concrete cap first, these containers are mostly sheet metal. Heavy duty as it is, the roof and sides will push inwards from the weight. Eventually the metal will rust through and you’ll be buried alive.

Reinforcing with concrete will ensure it is still there a few hundred years from now. One problem is that you need to keep an eye on the sump pump. If it goes bad or loses power, you’ll go in one day and find the whole thing flooded. A surface alarm letting you know the water level is above where it should be isn’t a bad idea. Putting the sump pump on a UPS is also a good thing.

This guy turned his into a wine cellar but it could also be used as an emergency shelter or make a very decent root cellar for storing food. Check it out below…
