There's a general belief that by burying a shipping container you can end up with an awesome root cellar and storm shelter.
But is a shipping container strong enough to handle the pressure?
Making a mini root cellar is simple enough. You'll need an empty trash can, a shovel, some rocks, straw, plywood and hammer and nails.
And what about storm or nuclear shelters?
You can build your own shelter. See how a 70-year-old veteran built a small nuclear bunker a root cellar in his backyard with $421.
Plus, have you ever wondered if you live close to a potential nuclear target? Even if you live in a small town or rural area… don't think you are safe. Not all strategic targets are in heavily populated areas. Find out if your county is close to ground zero.
