Shipping container as underground shelter

Final attempt to record building of an underground shelter using a 20 ft. shipping container. For those wondering why I didn’t simply pile dirt over it without pouring a concrete cap first….. These containers are mostly sheet metal. Heavy duty as it is, the roof and sides will push inwards from the weight. Eventually the metal will rust through and you’ll be buried alive. My way will insure it is still there a few hundred years from now. Problem is, you’d better keep an eye on your sump pump. If it goes bad or loses power, you’ll go in one day and find it the whole thing flooded. A surface alarm letting you know the water level is above where it should be isn’t a bad idea. Putting the sump pump on a UPS is also a good thing.

27 sq meter eco cube home

Constructed from a variety of sustainable materials, the Cube provides everything that a single person (or two friendly people) might need. Within its 27 cubic metres it includes a lounge, with a table and two custom-made chairs, a small double bed (120cm wide), a full-size shower, a kitchen (with energy-efficient fridge, induction hob, re-circulating cooker hood, sink/drainer, combination microwave oven and storage cupboards), a washing machine, and a composting toilet. Lighting is achieved by ultra-efficient LED lights, and the Cube is heated using an Ecodan air-source heat pump, with heat being recovered from extracted air. It has cork flooring and there is two-metre head height throughout.

Via Inhabitat, who notes the cube home produces more energy than it uses via solar panels on the roof and sides

Living in a tiny house with a laptop and a rifle

My name is Ryo Chijiiwa. I’m a biologically Japanese, culturally American, Germany-raised, socially liberal, politically independent, gun-totin’, code writin’ dude who likes to chill on his 60 acres of vacant land.

He lives in the woods in the middle of nowhere in a hand-built 180 sq. ft. house (when not in Silicon Vally grinding code.) He blogs about it at Laptop and a Rifle, and has a detailed post on the Tiny House Blog.
