I would love to have one like you have but cost to much for me right now. I want to tar it up good cover with old dock foam I have then bury in the hill side as a root cellar/storm shelter/hidy hole. In my are if you can find something like that it runs around $2500

Why would you need a 6000 cubic foot root cellar? You could store 100 quarts of veggies in about 25 cu ft. 10,000 rounds of ammo in 16 cu ft. A tornado shelter 10x6x8 would be good. (500 cu ft) Downsize your dream and make it happen. My "Hidey hole" is a walk down 5x10x6 concrete septic tank buried in the shop floor. Enough for a 10 minute stay.

I want something big so if push comes to shove I could live in it and be where few would ever see me. I spent to much time in places that where small like a sub and do not want to do so again

My son got caught with one by the zoning guy. Made him get rid of it. It's claimed around here they use Google Earth to check farm places and acreage's for illegal buildings. Neighbor got notice to get rid of old car setting in back of his garage hidden by the trees from the road so might be so.

No zoning laws in my area plus where I live if some one saw what I was doing they would have to trespass to do so, so they would be in trouble more then I would be since there is no law in this area for me to worry about but they do have to worry about the trespass law

Old.. I have one completely underground, would send you photos if was not so bad outside. First try and get one called an overseas container. They are painted and coated with a galvanized type paint won,t rust. Put the insulation on the outside , if not will sweat underground. Last I went to a local friend that was a roofer and got a full piece of rubber roofing , covered the entire thing before I put the dirt on top. This one has been buried now for over 15 years with no problems.
Took a D 9 dug a long slot and backed the truck with container down in it and slid it off. Backfilled a little at a time till I got it filled.

In my area the over seas type is extra hard to come by because we is so far form any real big body of water. I would love to have one or 2 maybe 3 of them but for what I hear they sell for my never have the $$ to do so. If I do ever get one the idea would be to coat with tar etc then lay the dock foam on top and on the sides then use plastic etc to cover the foam then dirt. But at this time it is a dream but dreams do come true some times LOL

If you put it all underground, what do you use it for? Summer cabin in the woods?
