Shipping Container Shelter
FaithTap Staff 12/14/2015
Wayne Martin had enough space in his backyard that he decided to do something different with it. He dug a large hole, the first step in his creative plan that would have everyone wanting to see how it turned out.
He had obtained a 20-foot-long shipping container with the intention to turn it into an underground cellar or shelter. Wayne did most of the work himself, although he did hire a septic tank company to place the container in the hole he'd dug. Over time, he shows the steps to transform this shipping container in a hole into an underground shelter - or as he uses it, wine cellar.
All his directions and tips can help anyone interested to make their own concealed room. His total cost for this ambitious project ended up at $12,500, but he reminds watchers that he did most of the work and had his own tractor. Even so, this idea is probably cheaper than hiring a company to create a fancy cellar, and do-it-yourself people would get a great sense of accomplishment once they completed this personalized shelter.
