I watched the video......can be back-filled , even covered with earth.......You can bet your sweet arse that I WOULD NOT enter or live in that rig with the additional load of Mutha Nature on and over this structure.

I guess it has a place, but a BUNKER it is NOT!!!
Can you see a 80 lb/sq ft load on that rig? sidewalls....roof...snow load...3" of rain.....I suppose if you had an EFM tall boy or a 900...perhaps a Keystoker W-30,
you could survive the implosion if you could get close to it. :mad3: :eek2: :fear: :alone: :stretcher:

well.... i agree somewhat with you but it is amazing at times to discover the strength or circles, domes, eggs, etc... their is a reason igloo's are shaped the way they are and their is a reason this shelter is a dome... it may be able to withstand pressures then one would assume at first glance

That's pretty sweet! I've been wanting to buy a shipping container and bury it in the ground . It would be cool to put one of these on top of that ! ;)

I wonder how many NYers are considering going underground with one of these now that they've found out Cuomo is related to Hitler.

Hey Theo, pretty interesting. I went looking for a price on that stuff, you have to write the company in the UK for it. Seems it might be real expensive if they hide their prices!
I even looked for it on EBAY and EBAY UK but no luck.


I think I saw something similar in The Whole Earth Catalog many years ago. That was an extensive list of hippie-ish, back to the garden products and ideas; similar to The Mother Earth News. I still have it from around 1970 I think.
They had a similar technique to build a shelter with concrete and burlap bags! You have to make a framework with chicken wire, then get the burlap bags coated in wet cement and drape them on until you have it covered.

The British guy that narrated the video in your link reminded me of Terry Thomas :D
