Clever Moderns Quonset Hut Homes — 3 Comments

  1. Thanks for that, Grayfox. The more I hear people talk about burying shipping containers the more I”m starting to dislike them. The idea of the containers being used in such a manner, not the people. LOL! If we”re not really careful they COULD end up being more of a tomb than anything else. Seems to be more trouble than it”s worth. We may be trying to put the proverbial square peg in the round hole. What I”m hearing is that shipping containers are designed for one thing and that is NOT being buried. They just will not bear the static pressure on the sides and the top. Then let”s make a left turn and think about a completely different solution if we do want to bury some kind of a metal container to be safe against emp. What about burying something like a metal Quonset hut? They already have a curved top which should be strong enough to support a reasonable amount of dirt piled on top of it. They”re already designed as a habitat which a shipping container isn”t. And as far as I know Quonset huts can be built in sections. And those sections should be easy enough to seal against moisture and emp. Let me know what you guys think.
