Hope everyone will look at temu's good thread showing and telling about his underground shelter. >
https://www.survivalistboards.com/showthread.php?t=63219

Temu is the Only one I know about who has used a shipping container to make his shelter. IF anyone else has also please say so, hopefully in this thread.
This thread is supposed to be a thread that contains all info about bunkers and even underground shelters, even about root cellars.

Especially cavemen, huh? So simple to build even a caveman can do it, even those who have never held a hammer before could do it. Even such as.... well I better not say...

But a bunker and underground shelter is NOT a cave. Some can be but most are NOT!

Here are a Few advantages to having a Bunker some even call it an Underground house >

"We believe that when designed and built
properly on suitable sites, Post/Shoring/
Polyethylene, or PSP, underground dwellings
are the finest that can be constructed.
They have 23 distinct advantages over conventional
structures. These are:

1. NO FOUNDATION. - except the earth.
2. LESS BUILDING MATERIAL. - using lumber or logs.
3. LESS LABOR.
4. MOST AESTHETICALLY PLEASING.
5. LESS TAX.
6. WARM IN WINTER.
7. COOL IN SUMMER.
8. BETTER VIEW. - especially if built on a hillside.
9. BUILT-IN GREENHOUSE.
10. ECOLOGICALLY SOUND.
11. INCREASED YARD SPACE.
12. FALLOUT SHELTER.
13. CUTS ATMOSPHERIC RADIATION.
14. DEFENSIBLE.
15. CONCEALMENT.
16. CLOSER TO SOURCE OF WATER.
17. RELATIVELY FIREPROOF.
18. PIPES NEVER FREEZE.
19. SUPERIOR FLOORING.
20. CAN BE BUILT BY ANYONE.
21. WEATHERPROOF. - extremely good tornado, blizzard and storm protection...
22. LESS MAINTENANCE.
23. SOUNDPROOF."
