Build A Large Underground Bunker With Shipping Containers
The Bunker Ark2 in Canada, was built with about 40 buses and houses around 400 people. Something similar could be built using shipping containers although most people wouldn’t need something so large.
How many shipping containers would you need to use to house 100 people with adequate kitchen facilities, rooms, bathrooms, etc. What would a shipping container project like this cost?
This could probably be done for around $300,000. Here is a cost breakdown: A shipping container is 8 feet in width and 40 feet long. That is 320 square meters and could consist of 1 bedroom, a bathroom, kitchen and living room. Assuming 2 people sleeping in the bedroom and one sleeping on a pull out bed in the living room. A cargo containers can usually be purchased for $2400 or less used. Accommodating 100 people would require 34 containers. So, 34 x $2,400 = $81,600. The containers will have to be connected, insulated, etc. Estimate $4000 per finished unit. $4000 x 34 = $136.000 $81.600 + $136.000 = $217,600 That gives you over $80 for concrete footings and other miscellaneous costs.
