So any of you ever thought about making some sort of shelter or bunker for tornado's? I was thinking of burrying an used shipping container for this.

>>2258856
didn't we already have this thread?
the weight of the earth would crush the container.

Hey /diy/ I haven't ever seen someone ask this in one of these threads.

So any of you ever thought about making some sort of shelter or bunker for tornado's? I was thinking of burrying an used shipping container for this.

you could offset the pressure that the soil exerts on the outside by filling the inside with imitation crabmeat
then you would have something to eat during an emergency

Some idiot was bragging on the Reddit diy board a few years back about making an underground chill out shipping container pad that he got unlicenced contractors to bury for him and the thread just filled with people attacking him on how dangerous it was to do that lol. I think some Redditors tracked down his address and snitched him out to his county's building inspector in Ontario.

IDK if I saw the same one that you're referencing, but I saw one on reddit years ago where a guy made a "party bunker" out of one under his backyard, with furry shag carpet on the walls and lots of big flat panel tv's running trippy visualizations etc.
After a lot of prodding from other users, he added a vent fan for fresh air intake.
After the first good rain, the walls and ceiling bulged in a good bit, and he realized that he had made a horrible mistake.

Just make sure you use enough extension cords or the sides will cave in.

Just make sure you put enough dirt over it. A container that's not securely buried can blow off into space.

Yeah that's the one. He smoked weed down there too. Pity the room didn't catch fire to teach him a lesson

Grandpa buried a school bus in the 70s. Stripped the seats, axles, engine and transmission then welded a staircase sticking up out of the side. The bus and stairs were then hot tarred. They dug out a hole next to the house, put down a thick layer of pea gravel and a sump for dewatering, lowered the bus in with the top of the staircase against the house, poured concrete around the bus first, let it cure, then on top, let it cure and filled back in with dirt. The staircase opened directly into the living room and a door was installed. This all worked great for 40 years until the sump died during a wet weather spell and wasn't noticed until the bus was half full of water. The carpet and wood paneling had to be replaced and some rust started showing but it's fixed now.

Moral of the story: it's not difficult, it is expensive, and requires multiple redundant active dewatering systems or monitoring. It was always humid down there as well and a dehumidifier or active ventilation should have been employed.
